Sometimes you need something more than just traditional braces when thinking about getting your teeth straightened. Having a customized treatment plan is not only important to our orthodontists, but it is also very important to the wellbeing of your smile, teeth and gums. So when you come in for your scheduled appointment with one of our skilled orthodontists, they will be able to fully assess your smile. Should you require a special orthodontic appliance, there are many to choose from to achieve the best results tailored specifically to address your unique needs.
For instance, Spring aligners are designed to correct any slightly misaligned teeth in the front of your mouth. These aligners are also effective at preventing slight misalignment that might present themselves down the road. Our Invisible retainers are custom made to fit your smile to a “T” and your smile only, to effectively keep your teeth from becoming misaligned again. Then there are Palatal expanders, which are the first phase in straightening a teeth in your smile. It can also be used to ease crowding, making your top and bottom teeth fit better together. Our Lower expanders help traditional braces do their job more more effectively by properly treating crowding in the mouth to prevent problems from developing.
Tongue cribs are geared more towards our younger patients, by preventing potential misalignment that often arises when the tongue constantly presses against the visible front teeth. The crib works by preventing the tongue from pushing against the front teeth basically eliminating the misalignment. Thumb cribs are used to prevent our younger patients from instinctively sucking their thumbs, which can misalign their teeth and impacting their oral development.
