Dr. Natalie Severns provides convenient orthodontic care for kids, teens, and adults at Severns Dentistry and Orthodontics.
Orthodontic treatment is used by people of all ages to transform their teeth and smile. Although straightening teeth is certainly a cosmetic concern, it’s also important for your health. Properly positioning your teeth creates a healthy smile, and allows you to easily eat and talk, while also keeping your teeth clean in between dental check-ups.
Orthodontic treatment fixes many dental and orthodontic problems, including:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
We offer metal braces with colors, clear braces, behind-the-teeth (lingual) braces, and clear aligners such as Invisalign®. Braces are now made with lighter, stronger material, and Dr. Severns’ customized approach can mean that your treatment time may be shorter.
The American Association of Orthodontists suggests that children should see an orthodontist by age seven to identify and correct problems. By this age, Dr. Severns will be able to evaluate your child to see if early treatment should be started. It’s common for children to receive orthodontic treatment in steps over a period of years. For some children, this ensures that there is enough room in your child’s mouth for their emerging adult teeth, it also makes additional treatment during the teen years faster. Many kids benefit from early treatment and get great results.
Teens are happy to learn that there are many choices for their orthodontic treatment, including metal braces, clear braces, behind-the-teeth braces, and clear aligners like Invisalign Teen. Invisalign Teen, in particular, is invisible, removable, and doesn’t have eating or drinking restrictions like those that come with wearing braces.
Invisalign for Teens
Invisalign Teen is invisible, removable, and doesn’t have any eating or drinking restrictions like those that come with wearing braces. Invisalign Teen is also more comfortable than braces, and since it can be removed, you can take it out to play sports, eat, or for special occasions such as a school dance.
With SmartTrack material, your Invisalign Teen aligners are easier to remove and feel more comfortable to wear. Invisalign allows teens to confidently achieve a new smile without the hassle of traditional metal braces.
Many adults who didn’t receive orthodontic care as a teen, or who received abbreviated treatment, are now choosing getting braces or Invisalign® because they’ve loved to have a more confident smile. Invisalign is particularly popular with adults because it is nearly invisible and can be removed to eat and drink. If you’d like to see if you’re a candidate for Invisalign, call Severns Dentistry and Orthodontics today to make an appointment for a consultation.
Invisalign for Adults
Invisalign is a popular option with adults since it is discreet and can be removed when eating and drinking, providing you with more freedom than traditional braces. Since it is nearly invisible to others, you can go to work, a job interview, or a special event with confidence, rather than feeling any awkwardness with traditional braces.
Invisalign, in addition to their convenience and discreetness, they are also custom-fitted to your mouth to provide more comfortable wear. With SmartTrack material, your aligners are easier to remove and put back on.
