There are some types of dental care services that require the expertise of an orthodontist rather than a dentist. Charlotte area’s Braces by Bird can answer all of your questions about orthodontic treatment and help you explore your options when considering braces. It can be an encouragement to discover that today’s treatments include advanced methods of straightening teeth without the need for metal brackets and wires.
Early Treatment Benefits
Teenagers fitted with braces have a specific advantage over adults, although orthodontists agree that it’s never too late to have your teeth straightened.
While the teen years are typically considered as the ideal time to look into braces, seven years of age is widely considered the optimal age for an assessment.
Treatment may not be necessary at this early age, however more and more experts are noting that appropriately timed screening increases their young patients’ chances for a perfect smile.
Interceptive treatment can create room for crowded teeth that are erupting, reduce trauma to protruding front teeth, preserve space for teeth that have not yet come in, and reduce the need for extractions.
Adult Treatment Benefits
If you’ve been thinking about braces for yourself, the good news is it’s never too late to create the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted - and with today’s virtually imperceptible options, no one else has to know you're improving your smile.
You can commit to wearing braces without changing your lifestyle.
Invisalign’s clear, virtually invisible, removable aligners require no ‘transition’ time, so you won’t have to learn how to speak while wearing them. Take them out for up to two full hours each day for brushing and flossing - or remove them while enjoying your favorite foods.
Other Invisible Options
Not all patients are candidates for Invisalign. For patients who require traditional braces, Clarity offers a solution to the age-old problem of attracting undue attention. Clarity is the clear version of conventional silver metal brackets and wires, made from tooth-colored ceramic that won’t stain or become discolored over the course of treatment.
Ask your dentist in Charlotte for a referral to Braces by Bird to learn more about how you can have your teeth straightened without making a ‘train track’ statement. We’d love to schedule a consultation with you to assess your teeth and recommend a treatment plan to create a beautiful brand new smile.
Invisalign For Teens
If your teenager is feeling less-than-excited about having to wear braces, Invisalign Teen's unique benefits may be precisely what they’ve been seeking.
Not only is Invisalign Teen utterly undetectable to others, but you’ll also have the peace of mind knowing that while the aligners are removable, the system contains indicators that verify the time they're worn during a particular treatment duration.
Ask your dentist in Charlotte how braces can benefit you or your teen - and call Charlotte Dentistry for a complimentary new-patient consultation to improve your smile using the latest technology available today. We’d love the chance to get to know you better and help you achieve the smile of your dreams.Charlotte Dentistry
