We Have Orthodontic Treatment Options for Your Unique Needs

At Packard Dental, we are your one-stop shop for almost every dental need. That includes a wide range of solutions to correct alignment problems for you and your loved ones. During your first orthodontic appointment, we’ll do a complete exam and take X-rays to determine which option is right for you. Your dentist can also use our digital imaging software to show you a preview of your future smile. It will give you confidence about moving forward with your treatment.

Your dentist may recommend:

  • Traditional Braces – These are the gold-standard solution to align your teeth. With brackets and wires, your teeth will be gradually straightened to the ideal position. Braces work well for more complex orthodontic needs. Many patients also prefer this option if they don’t believe they’d wear their aligners all day.
  • Clear Ceramic Braces – This uses the same method of straightening your teeth but with less noticeable clear ceramic brackets. It’s a low-key alternative to the classic metal braces.
  • Clear Aligners – We offer two types of aligners: Trez PRO and Invisalign. Both will discreetly straighten your teeth with removable aligners. Since the aligners are made of clear plastic, they are practically invisible in your mouth. They also typically give you results in less time than braces, taking about 12 to 18 months to complete.
  • Preventive Orthodontics – If your child has alignment problems, we offer preventive solutions such as space maintainers to help them avoid braces in the future.
  • Dentofacial Orthopedics – We use special techniques to guide the growth and development of your child’s mouth, face, and jaw.

After your treatment is complete, you will need to wear a retainer to maintain your beautiful straight teeth. Your dentist will give you instructions on how long to wear your retainer and how often.

You may also want to consider following up with cosmetic treatments. Getting your teeth whitened or pursuing dental bonding is a great way to get a gorgeous Hollywood smile. Discuss the changes you want to make with your dentist. He’ll make recommendations based on your goals and budget.

Common Questions About Orthodontics

Which type of orthodontics is best?

The best orthodontics depends on a number of factors, including the position of your teeth, your bite alignment, and what it would take to straighten your smile most effectively. Another important consideration is what kind of orthodontic treatment you’re willing to pursue based on how it would impact your lifestyle, routines, and appearance.

Can orthodontics help TMJ pain?

Yes, orthodontics may help resolve the TMJ pain you’re experiencing. If bite issues are causing tension and stress on your jaw joints, then orthodontics can correct these issues. After your initial consultation, we can let you know what type of treatment will work best to help eliminate your TMJ issues.

Can orthodontics change your face?

It’s possible that orthodontic treatment will result in slight changes to the appearance of your face. Once your bite is adjusted, it can affect the appearance of your jaw, especially in younger patients. Realigning teeth can also sometimes change how your lips look, making them appear slightly more or less full.
