Exceptional Orthodontic Treatment In & Around Nashua, Hollis, & Amherst
Today, many adults are making the decision to talk with an orthodontist about their oral health concerns. In fact, 25% of the patients that see us are adults! Crooked teeth affect people of all ages and the right treatment can help correct these concerns. Effective, targeted treatment solutions like Invisalign offer patients ways of achieving a beautiful, healthy smile. Dr. James Metcalf and Dr. Alana Bednarz will determine which options are best suited for the oral health concerns of each individual patient. Your journey to a perfect smile begins with a single appointment.
Improve Overall Oral Health
Braces and retainers are best known for their role in fixing misaligned bites, or malocclusions, though these treatment devices also help ensure the health of teeth and gums. When a bite does not settle into an optimal position, teeth experience disproportionate wear and tear. This leaves some teeth potentially more vulnerable to the formation of cavities. Crowded or overlapping teeth are difficult to clean sufficiently, and poor dental hygiene can lead to excessive plaque formation and gum disease. Correcting malocclusions will help preserve tooth enamel, make biting and chewing more comfortable and effective, prevent tooth chipping and cracking, and facilitate improved at-home dental hygiene practices.
Exploring Your Treatment Options
An evaluation with Drs. Metcalf and Bednarz is the best way to discover the particular concerns affecting you. From there, different treatment options can be discussed. Numerous types of braces are available today, including:
- Traditional metal braces – Lightweight and comfortable braces made from high quality stainless steel.
- Ceramic braces – These feature clear ceramic components, which achieve a discrete look that many adult patients prefer.
- 3M Incognito braces – Another discrete choice, these are placed onto the tongue side of teeth. Many different options are available through this system.
- Invisalign acrylic braces – A popular choice among adult patients, these braces can be removed for eating, hygiene, and socializing. A series of customized trays gradually shift teeth into position.
