Orthodontics Braces & Invisalign® for Southlake & Arlington
Orthodontics is a specialty study in dentistry that diagnoses, prevents, and treats irregularities of the teeth and face. Prompt treatment can correct an irregular (badly dispositioned) bite also known in the field of medical terminology as malocclusion. Orthodontists are doctors who specialize in the straightening of teeth. In young children, orthodontic treatment may also guide proper mandibular growth and permanent tooth eruption. Dr. Doctor can help with procedures transcending orthodontics and other areas of dentistry as well. Examples include his advanced training and experience in cosmetic dentistry and implant dentistry.
Many adults go without treatment and spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile, or speak. They feel at odds because they do not want to wear metal braces for years and years, or are concerned that other corrective procedures could be too expensive. There is an effective, safe, and affordable cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.
Another Option: Invisalign® Clear Braces
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth. This is accomplished using a custom-made series of aligners created for you, and you alone. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that simply wear over the teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually, and gently, shift your teeth into the proper alignment based on the exact movements Dr. Doctor plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete, and you achieve the confident smile that you have always wished for. The best part about the whole process is that most people will not even notice you are wearing aligners, let alone straightening your teeth.
