More Than Just Straightening Teeth

Orthodontic treatment goes beyond cosmetic enhancement; it's about improving your oral health and overall wellbeing. Whether you're considering braces for yourself or noticing signs of misalignment in your child, our team at Laughlin Dental is equipped to address a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, underbites, open bites, and more. Common symptoms in children, such as mouth breathing, fatigue, or snoring, can be early indicators of orthodontic needs.

The Benefits of Choosing Orthodontic Treatment

  • Enhanced Oral Health: Orthodontic treatment makes daily oral hygiene easier and more effective, reducing the risk of decay and gum disease.
  • Improved Function and Comfort: Correctly aligned teeth can alleviate problems caused by improper bite, such as jaw pain, and can improve overall chewing and speaking functions.
  • Boosted Confidence: A straight, well-aligned smile enhances your appearance and boosts your self-confidence.
  • Long-Term Wellness: Orthodontic treatment contributes to your overall health by aligning your bite and improving oral functions, potentially reducing the risk of future dental problems.

Comprehensive Orthodontic Solutions

Braces: Traditional and Modern Innovations

Braces have evolved significantly over the years. While traditional metal braces remain a popular and effective choice, we also offer ceramic and plastic options for a more aesthetic appeal. Each type has its unique advantages, and we’ll guide you through the options to find the best fit for your needs.

Invisalign®: The Discreet Alternative

For those seeking a less visible orthodontic solution, Invisalign® offers a series of clear, removable aligners that gently shift your teeth into place. It's an excellent option for both teens and adults, combining convenience with effectiveness.

SureSmile: Precision Orthodontics

SureSmile technology enhances the braces experience by using advanced software to create a precise treatment plan. This results in more efficient tooth movement and potentially shorter treatment times.

Phase 1 Orthodontics: Early Intervention

For our younger patients, Phase 1 Orthodontics provides early intervention to address developing orthodontic issues. This proactive approach can simplify or even eliminate the need for more extensive treatment later.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often will I need check-ups during orthodontic treatment?

Regular check-ups, typically every 4-6 weeks, are necessary to monitor progress and make adjustments to the orthodontic appliance, whether it's braces, Invisalign, or SureSmile.

What are the benefits of undergoing orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment improves not only the appearance of your smile but also your oral health. Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of decay and gum disease, and can improve chewing and speech.

Is orthodontic treatment painful?

While orthodontic treatment can cause some discomfort, especially after adjustments, it's generally manageable. Pain relievers and orthodontic wax can help alleviate any soreness.

How long does orthodontic treatment typically take?

The duration of orthodontic treatment varies based on the individual case. Generally, treatment can last from 12 to 36 months, with Invisalign often requiring a shorter time frame.

Are there financing options available for orthodontic treatments?

Yes, our practice offers financing options to make orthodontic treatment more accessible, including low-to-no-interest plans from CareCredit.

Does dental insurance cover orthodontic treatment?

Many dental insurance plans offer some coverage for orthodontic treatment, but the extent varies by policy. It's important to review your insurance plan or consult with your provider for specific coverage details.

What is Phase 1 Orthodontics and why is it important?

Phase 1 Orthodontics, or early intervention treatment, targets orthodontic issues in young children (typically ages 6-10). Early treatment can guide the growth of the jaw and correct bite problems, often reducing the need for more extensive orthodontic treatment later.

What is SureSmile and how does it differ from traditional braces?

SureSmile is an advanced orthodontic system that uses 3D imaging and robotics to create custom wires for braces, resulting in more precise tooth alignment and potentially shorter treatment times compared to conventional braces.

How does Invisalign work and who is it for?

Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gradually move teeth into the desired position. It's an excellent choice for teens and adults seeking a less noticeable alternative to traditional braces.

What is orthodontic treatment and who needs it?

Orthodontic treatment involves correcting malocclusions (improper bites) and misaligned teeth to improve oral function and aesthetics. It's suitable for both children and adults who have issues like crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, or crossbites.
