If your teeth are misaligned and crooked or you suffer from a misaligned jaw, your dentist might recommend you to an orthodontist. An orthodontist will correct your teeth and bite to give you the healthy and bright smile you deserve. Crooked teeth, if not treated, can be hard to keep clean and can be more at risk from tooth decay, gum disease and damage to the nerves when the bite is not aligned properly.
Orthodontic treatment can give you a healthier mouth and completely transform your smile and appearance. Here at Parkway Dental, we offer a few orthodontic services such as teeth aligners and post orthodontic treatment. If you are interested in undergoing any orthodontic treatment to give you the smile you have always wanted, call us at (203) 248-0011 or visit us at 1869 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden CT 06514 to make an appointment today!
If you want to straighten your teeth but don’t want to use the traditional metal braces, ClearCorrect might be the solution for you! ClearCorrect is a clear aligner that will straighten your teeth with the use of a custom-made, clear removable aligner that will correct the placement of your teeth and give you a healthier look.
This treatment consists of four phases of alignment therapy; each phase requires a new aligner that will be worn for a three-week period to allow the teeth to adjust. The aligners should be worn at all times except when eating and brushing. They can be worn at all times because they are so thin and comfortable that you won’t even remember you are wearing them, they are also very discreet.
Here at Parkway Dental, we believe in offering our patients the best and most innovative options for treatment. FastBraces is a new and innovative treatment that was designed in order to move the teeth fast and in a very effective manner in order to achieve beautiful, straight teeth in a shorter period of time unlike the most conventional treatments.
FastBraces are triangular clear braces, contrary to the square and chunky most famous braces, the wires are elastic and clear as well, these combination of triangular brackets and elastic wires is the ideal combination to help move your teeth in a more natural way, without creating pressure that moves them in a more unnatural way. You will be able to see results within the first few weeks and in a matter of months your smile will be transformed! It is a fast and safe, not to mention, easy way for an affordable option to straighter teeth.
Post Ortho Treatment (Retainers)
After undergoing an orthodontic treatment, whether it takes a few months or a few years, your teeth will continue to shift after the treatment. In order to help your teeth remain in place and not undo the work of your treatment, we recommend the use of retainers. The fact is that after your teeth have been moved into their new position with the use of braces, they need to not only adjust but remain in place. Retainers will help them do just that, it is very important to wear your retainer because it helps control the shifting that naturally occurs, as you grow older.
Your dentist will create a mold of your teeth after undergoing treatment, to create a clear and discreet retainer that can be used at different times; in fact, there are a few options to choose from different retainers.
