Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontic care?

Orthodontics, or orthodontia, is the type of dentistry that straightens crooked teeth and aligns jaws. Crooked teeth don’t fit together properly, which can make them harder to clean and create extra dental stress as you chew. If you have jaw misalignment, your bite could be affected.

Most people don’t have straight teeth without the help of orthodontics. Orthodontic dentistry improves the function and appearance of your mouth. Orthodontic treatment can repair a number of alignment issues, called malocclusions, including:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • And more

After initial treatment with orthodontics, Dr. Nwizu prescribes custom retainers to help you keep your teeth straight for years to come. Coupled with proper dental hygiene, orthodontic care and retainers can give you a beautiful smile you love to show off.

What are Fastbraces®?

Fastbraces® technology is the latest in orthodontic care that can straighten your teeth in as little as 100 days. Fastbraces are comparable to traditional braces — the system fixes malocclusions and gives you a straighter smile, but without the time and discomfort of traditional braces.

Traditional braces use a two-step process to move the crowns of your teeth into the correct position and then the tooth roots follow. With Fastbraces, your tooth roots are straightened first by using a patented technology that grows your jawbone.

Fastbraces patients report decreased pain, and the treatment can straighten your teeth in significantly less time than other options.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign® or traditional braces?

Traditional braces and Invisalign® remain two of the most popular orthodontic options. Traditional braces are an effective, time-tested orthodontic treatment that is often recommended for serious malocclusions. In just a couple of years, braces can dramatically improve your alignment.

Invisalign is a convenient system that uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth over time. Every few weeks, you’ll get a new set of aligners that gently move your teeth. Invisalign is often great for patients who want a flexible treatment for a straighter smile. The aligners are clear and barely noticeable, and you can take them out to eat or if you have a special event.

You have plenty of options to straighten your teeth and improve your bite. Let Dr. Nwizu help you find the best orthodontic options for your lifestyle. To learn more about orthodontic care at Sacred Dental & Associates, PC, call to schedule your first appointment today.
