Orthodontics treatments in Keller Texas
By nature our teeth are designed to be straight and well-aligned. Ideally our upper teeth should be slightly ahead of lower teeth when we bite. This is called perfect occlusion. However, in most of the cases the upper teeth may not come in proper alignment with the lower teeth in a bite. This may be because of disproportionate growth of jawbone and teeth or few childhood habits. Orthodontics in Keller is the area of dental medicine which is dedicated to the study of positions of teeth and the bite. The aim of an orthodontic treatment is to improve alignment of teeth and to correct the bite. If you are unhappy with your crooked teeth and want to improve your bite, make an appointment and meet our dentist at our Keller, TX office. We offer a number of orthodontic solutions to address your problem.
Braces have been one of the most widely recommended solutions for orthodontic problems. Braces have wires and brackets which are designed to move teeth in a planned direction. The tension in the wire acts on the teeth and applies steady and continuous force to move them such that there is improvement in alignment. The treatment with braces may take more than a year. Complex orthodontic cases can be successfully treated at any age using dental braces. After the treatment, retainers may be offered for use to ensure that the teeth do not get back to previous positions.
Invisalign® from Align Technology® is a popular orthodontic system which moves crooked teeth in a virtually invisible way. This means patients are free from the embarrassment caused by thick brackets and wires. The Invisalign® aligners are removable and very comfortable to wear. They are made of smooth BPA free plastic. The treatment involves use of a series of aligners which are custom made for your requirement. Each pair of aligners should be used for about 2 weeks. The treatment may take about 12 months to complete and the results are quite promising.
