Find the right orthodontics for you
Your smile’s appearance deserves a level of balance that makes you feel comfortable and attractive. When it comes to your smile, you need a treatment that gets results. Many of our treatments, such as Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, take less than a year. Some, like whitening and veneers, just require a couple of dental appointments!
To help you determine the ideal option for your particular situation, we will review any that you are interested in with you. We’re happy to go into as much detail as you need. All of the orthodontics options we offer could be a great fit for you depending on the current state of your smile and your end-result and lifestyle goals.
Looking for an alternative to metal braces?
ClearCorrect is the clear and simple choice. No wires. No brackets. Just clear, convenient comfort-every reason to smile.
With ClearCorrect, your dentist or orthodontist can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually get straight teeth.
You and your doctor will evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Once you and your doctor establish ClearCorrect is the right treatment option for you, your doctor will take impressions, photos, and x-rays of your teeth that ClearCorrect uses in manufacturing your custom aligners. Then your doctor writes a prescription for your custom aligners and sends it to ClearCorrect.
ClearCorrect can treat a wide variety of issues that keep people from achieving their ideal smiles. Straighter teeth don't just look better; they work better too. Poorly-aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, wear out quicker, and are more prone to cavities. Ask your doctor how ClearCorrect can help you.
The Invisalign Process
- Treatment Plan
We will thoroughly evaluate the condition of your teeth by visual inspection as well as taking precise radiographs. This will allow us to determine how to best position your teeth, step-by-step throughout the Invisalign process.
- Custom Aligners
A high-tech Invisalign lab designs a series of clear Invisalign aligners based upon the exact requirements needed to treat your specific case.
- Wear A New Aligner Every 2 Weeks
Depending on your specific situation, the exact time between changing aligners can vary but generally speaking, you will wear your aligners every day (about 20-22 hours a day) and start wearing the next set of aligners approximately every two weeks.
- The Big Reveal
During the final days of wearing your last aligner, congratulations; you have now achieved the beautiful straight smile you were after! IT IS POSSIBLE. Call us at 916-786-4865 and let Advanced Dental Concepts prove to you that Invisalign can work for you.
Six Month Smiles
Are you one of the millions of adults who are unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed of your smile?
Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk. They feel stuck because they do not want to wear metal braces for years or they are concerned that other corrective procedures could be too invasive or too expensive. Now, there is an effective, safe and affordable cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.
A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought - Six Month Smiles® utilizes specialized clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months.
Incognito™ Braces By 3M
If your case could benefit most from traditional braces but you don’t want to deal with metal being visible on the front of your teeth, you may want to consider Incognito™ braces. These work just like traditional braces but the brackets and wires are attached to the backs of your teeth on the side where your tongue is.
This innovative approach to braces has helped many patients and we’d be happy to assist you with it if you’re a good candidate.
Braces are bonded brackets, archwires and elastic bands that move crowded or spaced teeth into the proper position for appearance and function.
Over a period of time, teeth will shift if constant, gentle pressure is applied. Brackets are bonded to the front surface of each tooth and wires are attached to the brackets with elastic bands. The slight tension on the wire is gently transferred to the bracket through the elastic band.
Today's orthodontic treatment is faster, comfortable and more fashionable than ever for children, teens and adults.
Enjoy A Straight, Beautiful Smile
Straightening your smile will do more than bring harmony to your appearance. It can also:
- Correct bite issues that cause jaw or head pain.
- Make your teeth easier to clean by eliminating overlapping and crowding.
- Allow you to speak more clearly and chew food better.
- Prevent excess wear and tear on teeth that are not aligned correctly.
