The branch of dentistry known as orthodontics has seen amazing changes over the years. At one time, straightening teeth meant you would need to wear bulky metal braces for a year or more. Wires and rubber bands were always a source of frustration, and cheeks and tongues were forever being irritated by metal bands and loose wires. For most people seeking straighter teeth, all that has changed.
You now have options for straightening your teeth from Dr. Bob Perkins. If you do not have concerns about your bite and just want to straighten those teeth that are visible when you smile, you may be able to have it done in as little as six months with the Six-Month Smiles system of braces. If you are concerned about what people will say about you wearing braces, you can also have your teeth straightened discreetly with Invisalign® aligners. For more extensive straightening, traditional braces are still an option.
Crowded teeth, poorly spaced teeth and crooked teeth can be moved to produce a beautiful, straight smile quickly, discreetly and comfortably. With these options available, now is a good time to think about getting your teeth straightened.
Each patient is unique, and identifying the best option for your smile will provide the best results. Computer imaging allows you to see what you will look like when your treatment is completed.
