We proudly offer orthodontic treatment in our Milwaukee, WI dental office so that our patients can enjoy straighter, more comfortable smiles.
Conditions We Treat with Orthodontics
A misaligned smile can make you feel self-conscious about the way you look. It can also cause problems with your jaw and your bite, however, so the benefits of braces are more than just cosmetic.
Some of teeth alignment problems we address at Bright Dental include:
- Overlapping teeth
- Protruding teeth
- Gaps between teeth
We treat patients in our office using Six Month Smiles, Invisalign, and traditional orthodontics.
Discover Six Month Smiles
For patients wishing to improve the appearance of their teeth without undergoing lengthy treatment, we offer Six Month Smiles. As the name suggests, average treatment time is approximately six months.
The reason for the reduced treatment time is that we move only the teeth that are visible when you smile. Since fewer teeth are involved, you can enjoy your results faster.
Six Month Smiles uses a clear memory wire and tooth-colored brackets, giving your braces a more discreet appearance. The memory wire gradually aligns your teeth, making your smile look more uniform.
Invisalign Clear Braces System
Invisalign is an alternative that allows our patients to avoid brackets and wires altogether. We create a treatment plan and receive a series of clear aligner trays that will gradually move your teeth.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks and then graduate to the next set. Your trays are crystal clear, smooth, comfortable, and removable. Because you can remove them, it is important to stress that wearing them most of the day, about 22 hours, is essential to completing your treatment effectively and efficiently.
Some of the benefits of Invisalign include:
- Easier home hygiene
- No sores inside your cheeks
- Nearly invisible aligners
- No speech distortion
- No dietary limitations
The length of Invisalign treatment depends on your individual care. Either Dr. Rehman or Dr. Chandok will go over your treatment times along with expected costs so that you know exactly what to expect.
Sometimes, the best orthodontic option for kids or for complex cases involving your bite is traditional orthodontics. Bracket-and-wire dentistry is a tried and true method to move teeth effectively, while being able to monitor treatment and make adjustments to ensure that you get the best outcome. Traditional braces are sturdy and reliable. Avoiding hard and sticky foods will prevent damage to your orthodontia.
No matter which option you choose to straighten your smile, you will need to wear a retainer after treatment. Without a retainer, your teeth will drift out of place again.
We create retainers here in our Milwaukee dental office for the convenience of our patients. If you ever lose your retainer, give us a call right away so we can replace it.
