Creating Beauty and Balance through Orthodontics
Are you dissatisfied with or embarrassed by the appearance of your smile? Modern orthodontics now offers more solutions for straightening teeth than ever before and patients have the option to correct misalignment with less invasive options than bracket-and-wire metal braces. For mild to complex malocclusion, we offer Invisalign® and ClearCorrect orthodontics. These two versions of removable clear aligners subtly straighten teeth with near-invisibility and with greater comfort and convenience than traditional braces. Dr. Michael Sohl plans each treatment with the end result in mind to ensure that your teeth not only straighten correctly, but provide a beautiful, balanced smile when treatment is complete.
How do Clear Aligners Work?
Our clear aligner orthodontic treatment is ideal for any compliant patient with mild to complex crooked teeth. For our teenage patients, colored indicators are added to the aligners to ensure wear time remain between 20 and 22 hours each day. Both Invisalign® and ClearCorrect clear aligners are removable, allowing our patients to maintain proper at-home oral health care and the ability to eat an unrestricted diet. We provide personalized consultations and treatment plans for each of our patients, creating a series of custom clear aligners that are swapped out every two weeks. This way, you can be sure your orthodontic care will be tailored to your own teeth, providing the most aesthetic and beneficial results in less time than with traditional braces.
Clear aligners can correct the following:
- Open bite
- Over- and underbite
- Tooth rotation
Why is it Important to Straighten Teeth?
While one of the biggest benefits of orthodontics is a visible, beautiful smile, straightening teeth can also improve oral health and function. Aligned teeth make brushing and flossing easier and much more beneficial. With better maintenance of oral health, the risk for tooth decay, gum recession, or gum disease is significantly reduced. But most importantly, we are here to provide orthodontic treatment that gives a boost to your confidence by providing you with a healthy and aesthetic new smile!
