Orthodontics Services Offered at Curtis Orthodontics
Here at Curtis Orthodontics we are pleased to offer the following types of orthodontic treatment:
Using gradual force, clear aligners gently move teeth into alignment without the use of metal wires or brackets. Clear aligners are made with very strong plastic material that is fabricated specifically to fit the patient’s teeth. As treatment progresses, the patient switches through a series of aligners, each one bringing the teeth closer to their correct alignment.
True orthodontic emergencies are rare, but when they occur we are available to you. As a general rule, you should call our office when you experience severe pain or have a painful appliance problem you can’t take care of yourself. We’ll be able to schedule an appointment to resolve the problem.
Braces are an investment worth protecting. Even if you don’t always wear a mouthguard while playing sports, you’ll want to reconsider while wearing braces. Properly fitted mouthguards help protect both an athlete’s teeth and the other athletes on the field. An ill-fitting mouthguard is not only uncomfortable it’s also less effective at protecting you from impact, injury, and damage.
Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Using the latest in digital imaging technology, we will demonstrate the overall functional and aesthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery. Computerized treatment planning minimizes treatment times, recovery periods and the overall efficacy of your surgery.
We offer several different types of braces so that we can match each patient with their ideal orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is great for patients who want low-profile treatment, traditional metal braces can treat the widest range of orthodontic problems, and self-ligating braces can reduce the number of adjustment appointments you’ll need during treatment.
In traditional orthodontic treatment, the patient only begins treatment after most or all of their adult teeth have grown in. However, certain issues with the bite, dental alignment, and facial development can start to appear long before the last few adult teeth show up. We encourage parents to bring their children in for a consultation as early as age seven so that we can check for signs of future orthodontic issues.
To keep your smile looking its best after the braces come off, you’ll have to wear a retainer to preserve and stabilize your results. Retainers are needed to control or limit potential changes in tooth position. They are used after braces treatment to hold teeth in their correct alignment while the surrounding gums, bone, and muscle adjust to the new positioning of your teeth.
