Choosing which type of orthodontic treatmentcan be overwhelming but our dental team has extensive knowledge and experience to help make the process easier. From crooked teeth to jaw pain, we can provide the services needed right here in our Mentor office. Great Lakes Dental Arts provides orthodontic services such as Invisalign, traditional metal braces and clear ceramic braces. A popular orthodontic treatment called Invisalign is a great way to straighten teeth without the hassle of braces. Invisalign uses clear aligners to help straighten teeth. Although this option can be seen to take a little more time, these aligners are smooth and can be removed easily for cleaning. There are no wires in this process and you are able to eat whatever you want. Another option is a more traditional form for straightening teeth categorized as metal braces. These are the braces you imagine someone wearing when they tell you they have to get "braces." Although this is the most noticeable form for fixing a smile, these traditional braces can be the quickest option to correcting your smile and allows you to express yourself through colorful bands. Dental braces can be used to fix a misaligned bite, crowded teeth or jaw problems. Over the years, the technology behind braces has evolved to be more comfortable and sleeker to those patients seeking this kind of treatment. Clear ceramic braces on the other hand, perform the similar functions of metal braces but are tooth colored. Clear ceramic braces mimic the color of your teeth so the treatment is not as noticeable as metal braces. This option allows the patients to achieve the more traditional treatment without the hassle of the braces being noticeable. Here at Great Lakes Dental, we provide excellent orthodontic services. We know and understand the importance of a beautiful smile and will work with you to achieve it. For further questions, please call us today!
