Orthodontics is the process of correcting misaligned or maloccluded teeth. Having Orthodontic treatment will straighten our teeth and correct the unevenness in your jaw so that your teeth and jaws can work in harmony.
We understand that orthodontic treatment plans and timelines are different for each patient’s individual needs depending on age, teeth and jaw structure, and over all oral health. In our office, your dentist will take the time to sit with you, assess your treatment, and discuss the best option for you.
At Somba Ké Family Dental, we offer two forms of orthodontic treatment:
Our office offers the Speed Braces method of metal braces. This method
eliminates the need for elastics that traditional braces require to straighten teeth. The Speed Braces contain a built in “super elastic” Spring Clip that guide the wire to apply a light, continuous force to gently move your teeth to their correct position. Speed Braces are smaller making them more esthetically pleasing, and more comfortable than traditional braces. The smaller size means that they will trap less food, making oral hygiene easier to maintain throughout your treatment.
This method is the invisible way to straighten your teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly invisible aligners that resemble a retainer or a mouth guard. Approximately every 3 weeks, your will change your aligner trays that are customized to fit your mouth and teeth as they move. Since the trays are removable for meal times, it makes your oral hygiene routine easier and quicker.
We strive to make this experience not only pleasant with stunning results, but affordable and stress free.
