At Belmont Smiles, we value the importance of keeping teeth in the proper alignment to benefit one’s oral health. When it comes to oral health, people are not nearly as proactive about seeking treatment as they are with physical health issues. However, orthodontic care is crucial for the development of teeth and one’s oral health. Not keeping teeth in the proper alignment can result in a variety of oral health issues.
As an orthodontist, we can help both younger and adult patients maintain a straight smile and prevent any oral health issues from causing permanent damage. While brushing and flossing are important to keep teeth clean, they will not be enough to treat alignment issues.
If you or your child need orthodontic care, we have the skills and services to keep your smile healthy.
From the moment patients walk in the door to follow-up appointments, our team strives to build a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for the patient. We help ease patients into orthodontic care so they can feel at ease during the treatment process. Straightening teeth can take time and due to that, we will guide patients through the process. In some cases, children may start with a space maintainer or orthodontic device as early as before middle school. We can take the time to identify any early signs of alignment or overcrowding issues and recommend orthodontic treatment. With our help, a child’s adult teeth can grow in properly and not cause other issues over time.
We provide an array of orthodontic services for patients ranging from children to adults. While many people believe baby teeth are not that important, they are wrong. If baby teeth fall out prematurely, then the other teeth can shift into the gap left by it. In other cases, a child’s teeth can begin to shift out of alignment and become crooked. With crooked teeth, people will have a more difficult time cleaning them, chewing and even speaking. Our services include clear aligners, Invisalign®, braces, clear braces, adult braces, ceramic braces, Invisalign for teens, space maintainers, early orthodontic treatment and more. The first step is to call and schedule an appointment.
To begin the treatment process, we will need patients to fill out a “New Patient Information Form” that covers the patient’s current condition, medical history, allergies, insurance and any other pertinent information we need to know. Once we conduct an initial examination, we will determine what the patient’s teeth need. Younger patients may need to wear braces twice or wear space maintainers first. This can help to prepare the teeth and ensure they are more likely to stay in the new position. Many of our treatments will gradually shift the teeth into the proper position over time. Adults and teens can choose to wear Invisalign or clear aligners for a discreet option instead of braces.
