Invisalign® is a set of custom-made aligners that Dr. Game makes specifically for your teeth. You might have heard about Invisalign clear aligner therapy and wondered if it’s right for you. These aligners are made of a comfortable and clear plastic material that will adjust your teeth over time. Dr. Game will adjust the aligners until your teeth are completely straight! The benefits of Invisalign are:
- The aligners are clear so nobody will notice you are wearing them
- They can be removed when you eat and brush your teeth
- They are smooth and comfortable to wear
- No food restrictions
- Faster treatments
- No damage to teeth or gums
Powerprox® Six Month Braces
Powerprox® Six Month Braces utilizes the same techniques used in orthodontics for over 60 years, and combines them with new materials and technologies to quickly and safely straighten your teeth. You can get the smile you’ve always wanted in as few as only six months!
Powerprox uses clear and nearly invisible wires and brackets that are hardly noticeable. The key technology is a special wire with “shape memory,” which always returns to its ideal shape, no matter how bent or twisted the wire gets. This wire will move your teeth automatically into the correct position, giving you a great looking smile.
What is the best age to visit the orthodontist?
You may visit the orthodontist anytime after your permanent teeth have erupted. For most, this is around the age of 7. While many patients undergo orthodontic treatment during adolescence, there are several who seek orthodontics well into adulthood. We provide family orthodontics to patients of all ages!
How long do I have to wear braces?
Treatment times vary from patient to patient. Your personalized treatment plan will depend largely upon whether you’re wearing metal braces or Invisalign. During your orthodontic consultation, we’ll discuss your smile goals and give you an estimated wear time.
Do braces need special care?
Your at-home routine is more important than ever when wearing braces. Metal wires and brackets can trap food and harbor cavity-causing bacteria. Ensure you’re adequately brushing and flossing around your braces. Additionally, avoid any sticky or crunchy foods that may cause damage to your braces.
