Orthodontics is a dental specialty that diagnoses and treats alignment issues affecting your teeth and jaw. When your teeth and jaw are in the optimal position, it’s easier to bite and chew. What’s more, your teeth are easier to brush and floss, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
At Bella Vita Dentistry at Glade Parks, Dr. Amria uses orthodontics to address a variety of alignment issues, including:
You might also benefit from orthodontics if you experience difficulties biting or chewing.
Yes. At Bella Vita Dentistry at Glade Parks, Dr. Amria offers several types of orthodontic treatment, including:
Metal braces are orthodontic appliances that Dr. Amria bonds to the front of your teeth. Braces feature metal archwires, brackets, and rubber bands. These appliances place mild pressure on your teeth and jaw, gradually moving them into the optimal position.
If you don’t want to wear metal braces, consider clear braces. Clear braces use a combination of ceramic brackets, clear wires, and clear rubber bands. They blend in with your teeth, allowing you to undergo orthodontic treatment discreetly.
Lingual braces look like metal braces, but they’re bonded to the back of your teeth instead of the front. Lingual braces take a little extra work to care for, but you can receive treatment without anyone else knowing they’re there.
If you want to undergo orthodontic treatment and still eat your favorite foods, consider Invisalign®. Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners to improve the position of your teeth and jaw. Treatment is discreet and much quicker than with traditional braces. Most people finish Invisalign treatment in just six months*.
To determine if you qualify for orthodontic treatment, Dr. Amria conducts an oral exam and takes a series of oral X-rays. She uses the X-rays to assess the alignment of your teeth and jaw. If Dr. Amria detects any issues, she designs a custom treatment plan that aligns with your age, oral health history, and budget.
