If you answered A five or more times…

Then you’re likely a great candidate for Invisalign! This virtually invisible treatment is ideal for adults and older teens who want to enhance their smile without changing their daily appearance in the process. It’s perfect for making small, cosmetically-focused adjustments, but it can also help with more severe crowding and crookedness. One big advantage of Invisalign is that it’s removable, meaning patients don’t have to change their diet or brushing habits during treatment!

If you answered B five or more times…

You’re a great candidate for braces! At Shirck Orthodontics, we offer multiple types of this trusted, reliable treatment: metal braces, clear/ceramic braces, self-ligating braces, and WildSmiles Custom Braces. Generally, braces are better suited for younger patients or those who need more extensive corrections due to a malocclusion, or misaligned bite.
