Orthodontic Treatments for a Beautiful Smile
For those who are self-conscious about their smile, orthodontic care may be the answer they have been looking for. Orthodontic treatment can help correct malocclusion, overbite, underbite, crossbite, deep bites, crooked teeth and other flaws of the jaws and teeth.
At Dr. Gallois Orthodontics, you will receive the highest quality of care in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Patients of all ages are welcomed to come see what orthodontic care can do for them. We offer different types of orthodontic appliances including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces and Invisalign®.
Traditional metal braces are still the most popular types of braces as they produce high quality results and can be livened up with colorful bands. They are made of stainless steel and are attached to the cheek side of the patient's teeth. Braces have been designed to allow the orthodontist to move a patient's teeth in a three dimensional manner.
Clear ceramic braces are popular with adults and teenagers who want the results of braces without the look of metal.
Invisalign® is a system that straightens teeth without the use of traditional braces. A series of clear plastic aligners are utilized to create tooth movement. Moving teeth with removable aligners is not new. It is the computer program that generates a series of aligners with small changes that is new.
Our doctors are certified by the Invisalign® company to offer patients with this convenient teeth straightening system. Invisalign® is recommended for most orthodontic situations with mild to moderate spacing or crowding. The aligners are virtually undetectable, easy to use, and comfortable to wear.
If you believe Invisalign® is the right option for you, call our office today!
