Braces can correct crooked and crowded teeth, a misaligned bite as well as correct jaw problems. Braces, not only improve the look of your smile, they can improve the function of your smile helping with eating, speaking and cleaning. At CedarNorth Dental, we specialize in a wide range of orthodontic options, including traditional braces. Traditional braces consist of standard metal brackets that are affixed to the patients’ teeth held in place by wire. Metal braces require periodic tightening and are a common, affordable option for those in need of the correction braces can offer to their smile.
Ceramic braces are similar to their metal counterparts except they are made of a different material. Ceramic braces are tooth-colored, so they are not as noticeable - a feature that patients love. The wires and bands that are used with ceramic braces are also neutral and natural-looking for additional discretion. This is the primary difference between ceramic braces and traditional metal braces. Ceramic braces have a tendency to show stains if dark foods or liquids are consumed. They also may be more costly than metal braces. Your CedarNorth Dental team will work with you to determine the best option for you and your smile.
Our in-house clear aligners are a popular choice for patients who need to correct their smiles but don’t want to show off a mouth full of metal. Clear aligners are a convenient, affordable way to straighten your smile with the convenience of clear aligners that can be removed for eating and certain situations where braces aren’t desirable. Just like the option of traditional braces, aligners are designed to move teeth a slowly over time. After accessing your current dental situation, your CedarNorth Dental orthodontist plans the best treatment process for your clear aligners, defining which tooth moves when and how to get to the smiles goals defined in the beginning. Wearing your custom-made, clear aligners puts gentle pressure on the teeth, slowly guiding them into the place.
EZ-Align clear aligners by DynaFlex are a popular choice for patients looking for a lightweight and clear option to straighten their teeth. The EZ-Align clear system is an excellent choice for the correction of misaligned teeth in teens and adults. EZ-Align offers an easy-to-use, non-obtrusive way to progressively move teeth to obtain a beautiful, straighter smile. EZ-Aligns are custom molded to fit the patient’s teeth, and over a short amount of time, new aligners replace that old to continue to move the teeth in the right direction. Each EZ-Align aligner is completely removable by the patient for added flexibility.
CedarNorth Dental specializes in helping patients with their needs for custom-fit retainers - both plastic and metal. Retainers are typically used after traditional braces are removed to prevent the teeth from shifting back to their previous positions. In other cases, retainers may be worn to close or reduce a space between the teeth.
