At Gentle Dental, we know that straighter teeth and a perfectly aligned bite can dramatically improve your appearance. The goal of Orthodontic treatment is not only the cosmetic improvement of your smile but also the very practical one of a functionally improved bite.
Of the many aspects of treatment that Orthodontics includes, probably the most familiar are Dental Braces. Braces are typically made from stainless steel or more aesthetically pleasing ceramic materials and Invisilign. There are different stages of treatment. Typically, after an active corrective stage there will be what is called a retention stage. The familiar appliance associated with this stage is the retainer.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that both orthodontists and dentists use as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces.
An Orthodontist is a dental specialist who has completed an orthodontic residency in addition to their dental degree. They dedicate their lives to correcting misaligned, crooked or crowded teeth and making your smile the best it can be.
