What are orthodontics? How can this area of dentistry help you get a perfect smile
Everyone wants beautiful, straight teeth and a smile that can light up a room. When you have a nice smile, you have more confidence and exude a positive energy. You feel great and make those around you feel good. Orthodontics can help give you the smile you want.
At Legacy Ranch Dental in Frisco, orthodontics help us correct misaligned teeth and jaw problems for our patients. Some patients have issues with their upper teeth being too forward or too far back, some have an overbite, while other have overcrowding or spacing issues. In the end, all of our patients want a beautiful smile and we aim to deliver.
From clear aligners, to clear braces and Fastbraces
There are many components to this area of dentistry from braces to clear aligners to brackets, trays and more equipment to help correct crooked teeth and refining occlusion. At Legacy Ranch Dental, we offer a range of orthodontic treatments from clear aligners to Six Month Smiles clear braces, Fastbraces and more. Fastbraces allows for a fast, safe and affordable way to straighter teeth. Its technology allows for the roots of the teeth to move toward their final position. This dental treatment takes about a year to deliver final results.
Traditional braces straighten teeth in two stages and over two years. First the crown is moved into alignment then treatment addresses the position of the tooth root. With Fastbraces, the principal is different. There's a specifically-shaped wire to correct the position of the tooth right from the beginning of the orthodontic treatment. The triangular design of the braces is the main difference, allowing for more flexibility.
Orthodontic treatment and maintenance
Depending on your individual orthodontic treatment, you'll have a set of do's and don't's to help you with taking care of your orthodontic appliance. There may be foods you can't eat such as hard foods, there may be a specific way to brush your teeth or floss or even how to clean your take-home aligners. At Legacy Ranch Dental in Frisco, all of these questions will be answered during the first consultation. Of course, if other questions arise while you're going through the orthodontic treatment, don't hesitate to ask. Our entire staff is dedicated to helping you get that beautiful smile you've been wanting.
