Orthodontics Q & A

What is an orthodontist?

An orthodontist specializes in the precise, planned movement of teeth to realign and transform smiles. At Quality Dental Center Inc., orthodontics focuses on giving you a healthier looking, more attractive smile that will boost your self-confidence.

Orthodontists evaluate your teeth then use advanced technology, such as digital scans and X-ray machines, to map out detailed treatment plans for gradually shifting your teeth into optimal position. The result is a drastically improved smile.

Orthodontic treatments can help patients of all ages improve their smiles. Quality Dental Center Inc. is a full family dentistry and pediatric care practice so the entire family can straighten their teeth at this one-stop shop. Even as an adult, it’s never too late to realign your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

What orthodontic treatments are available?

At Quality Dental Center Inc., the team provides clear aligner options that straighten your teeth with minimal hassle. These clear aligner options are thin and tooth-colored so you can smile with confidence while you get treated, unlike with traditional, bulky metal braces.

With Invisalign®, you wear clear, removable aligners for 20-22 hours a day. You can take them out to eat and brush your teeth. Over time, Invisalign aligners shift your teeth by applying controlled amounts of force. You receive new sets of aligners every few weeks with minor alterations that continue the precise movement of your teeth.

The second option is the Minor Tooth Movement or MTM® . This option also involves wearing clear, removable aligners that move your teeth rapidly and without pain. The aligners are extremely comfortable.

Why should I consider orthodontic treatment?

Having a straighter smile can help contribute to better oral hygiene, as properly aligned teeth are easier to care for and limit your risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Crooked teeth are harder to brush and floss, making them more susceptible to dental problems.

Also, using Invisalign or MTM to straighten your teeth can enhance your appearance. Many patients report improved self-image and confidence with a completely rejuvenated smile. That goes for teens, young adults, and adults.
