Straight teeth are the key to a healthy and beautiful smile. Crooked teeth, crowded teeth, misaligned jaws, overbites or underbites can lead to lifelong dental health problems. The long-term effects of orthodontic issues can include headaches, teeth grinding or clenching, headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, or difficulty eating or speaking confidently. Misaligned teeth are also more difficult to keep clean, even with great dental hygiene and at-home care, leading to an increased risk of gum disease and other concerns.
Unlike most orthodontists, Dr. Wise never extracts teeth prior to orthodontic treatment. Tooth extraction is no longer an accepted procedure, as it restricts the jaw and may increase the patient’s risk of developing sleep apnea later in life. Trained in Europe in the latest research-driven techniques, Dr. Wise recommends early childhood orthodontic treatment to avoid jaw surgery in the future.
Depending on your child’s needs, Dr. Wise may recommend orthodontic treatment as early as age five. This will help your child achieve optimal oral health without the need for invasive surgery.
Yes, you can. If you want straighter teeth without the need for traditional braces, call Lower Columbia Oral Health today. Our team offers clear aligner treatment to help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile without visible metal brackets or wires. Depending on your needs and treatment goals, our dentists may recommend:
Dr. Wise plans Invisalign and other clear aligner therapy using highly sophisticated treatment planning software. This provides the highest degree of accuracy and precision compared to the results offered by other orthodontists across the planet.
Following the completion of your treatment, we also offer retainers. Retainers help you maintain your desired bite and keep your teeth straight. Be sure to wear your retainer as directed by our dentists.
When the teeth within the visible area of your smile need to be straightened, Six Month Smiles is the most effective system of achieving the desired results. The clear braces focus on repositioning the teeth that can be seen when you smile. Your teeth are gently moved with low force. Low force movement allows the teeth to be moved faster than traditional braces. The shorter timespan also means increased comfort. Your visits to our office are less time-consuming than with traditional braces because Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kits make adjustments simple.
