Orthodontics

Orthodontia is the specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the treatment of improper bites and crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatment can help fix the patient’s teeth and help them move into the right place.

Do I need Orthodontics?

At some time or another, you many have considered visiting an orthodontist but were unsure if it is the right service for you. Deciding if you need orthodontics is ultimately up to you and your dental provider. Our experienced dentist at Lynn Dental Care will take the time to help you find a treatment plan that best fits your individual needs, whether it is orthodontics or one of our other services such as porcelain veneers or even oral surgery. Although you must first visit your provider before deciding if you need orthodontic treatment, there are a few common reasons why individuals consider visiting an orthodontist. These reasons include:

  • Orthodontics wire bracket bracesOverbite: An overbite occurs when your upper teeth excessively overlap your lower teeth.  
  • Underbite: An underbite occurs when your lower teeth overlap your upper teeth.
  • Crowded teeth: This occurs when your jaw cannot naturally fit all of your teeth, which can result in severely crooked teeth.
  • Gaps or spaces in teeth: Gaps are can occur anywhere in the mouth. Although gaps or spaces in teeth are not typically detrimental to your health, many people find it aesthetically unpleasing.
  • Crossbite: Crossbites typically occur when the upper teeth are slightly behind the lower teeth. This is both aesthetically unpleasing and also causes issues with chewing.

At Lynn Dental Care we offer two different types of Orthodontia treatments for our patients.

Invisalign®

Orthodontics and InvisalignMany people avoid orthodontics, especially as adults because they imagine an uncomfortable and bulky metal glued to their teeth. However, at Lynn Dental Care, we offer Invisalign®, which is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth without wires and brackets. Invisalign® uses clear, comfortable trays to get the teeth back into position gradually without having the appearance of typical braces. Invisalign® is an innovative way to straighten your teeth with confidence. If you are interested in learning more about Invisalign®, contact our Invisalign Dentist, Dr. Lynn, today.

Metal Braces

When you hear the word “braces,” it is likely that you will picture a metal wire with little metal brackets on each teeth. These commonly known types of braces are fittingly called metal braces. In the past, metal braces were seen as “clunky” and “uncomfortable,” but the metal braces today are much smaller and more comfortable than before. Metal braces are made up of a thin metal archwire and small, flat metal brackets that are bonded to the teeth to hold them in place.

Clear Braces

If you are wanting braces that are less noticeable, clear or ceramic braces are a great option. Clear braces are very similar to metal braces, however, instead of the brackets being metal, the brackets are clear or tooth-colored to blend in with your teeth. So, you can have traditional braces that are not only less noticeable, but also provides faster results compared to clear plastic aligners.

Fast Sliding Braces

Fast sliding braces are a new and innovative orthodontic treatment option that reduces treatment time and helps you achieve that beautiful, bright smile you’ve always wanted in a matter of months. Fast sliding braces are also made up of a thin wire and metal brackets, however, the brackets were specifically designed to move the crown and the root at the same time, providing faster results.
