In-House Clear Aligners
With our 100% made in-house clear aligners, patients are able to achieve the straight teeth they’ve always wanted without their treatment being immediately obvious. These see-through plastic trays basically disappear when you wear them, allowing your teeth to be straightened while the people around you are none the wiser. Plus, you can easily remove the aligners to eat, brush, and floss like you would ordinarily. And with our clear aligners, Dr. Witt will have full control when it comes to designing and monitoring your treatment, guaranteeing a fantastic result.
Clear braces work in a similar manner as traditional metal braces, with the major difference being that the brackets are crafted from materials that are designed to be less noticeable against the teeth. With clear ceramic braces, patients can undergo treatment that blends right in with their pearly whites. Kids, teens, and adults can all benefit from this image-friendly solution!
Even with the numerous orthodontic treatments currently available, traditional braces remain one of the most popular and effective methods. This system of metal brackets and wires can easily correct the vast majority of dental alignment problems, from simple to complex. Modern technology has made this classic treatment more comfortable, cost-effective, and cosmetically pleasing than ever before.
Phase I Pediatric Orthodontics
Wouldn’t it be great to reduce or even eliminate your child’s need for future orthodontic treatment? That’s what Phase I Pediatric Orthodontics is designed to do! These treatments are prescribed to help younger patients correct existing orthodontic problems, avoid potential ones down the road, and put a stop to habits that might eventually contribute to alignment issues, such as thumb-sucking and tongue thrusting. The ultimate goal of Phase I Pediatric Orthodontics is to encourage your child’s permanent teeth to grow in as straight and healthy as possible.
Orthognathic surgery is the scientific term for corrective jaw surgery, and it’s typically recommended only when a severely misaligned bite cannot be remedied by regular orthodontic treatment alone. These procedures may entail elongating or shortening one of the jaws, for example. Whatever the case may be, you can trust that Dr. Witt will keep you comfortable every step of the way.
Braces and clear aligners are far from the only appliances we use to better the health and appearance of our patients’ smiles. For instance, retainers can prevent your newly straightened teeth from drifting after braces are taken off, and a thumb crib can protect your child from orthodontic problems that could arise from a thumb-sucking habit that persists for too long.
While orthodontics typically focuses on adjusting the positions of the teeth, dentofacial orthopedics does the same for the underlying bones in the jaw and face that surround and support the teeth. Dr. Witt can utilize this approach to address and even prevent bite misalignment. It could even give a patient a more balanced facial appearance, enhancing their attractiveness. Dentofacial orthopedics is quite effective in younger patients, but adults can also benefit from it.
Orthodontic treatment might be primarily associated with children and teenagers, but adults are increasingly seeking treatment for their misaligned teeth. Thanks to the latest technological advancements in the field of orthodontics, adults are able to straighten their teeth in ways that are more subtle and aesthetically pleasing than ever. Whether your teeth have shifted since wearing braces as a child or you’ve never worn them at all, Dr. Witt can help you get the smile you want no matter your age.
