Everyone loves the idea of having a winning smile, but orthodontics is about much more than having a mouth full of straight teeth. It’s also about developing a healthy bite and restoring proper jaw relationships by adjusting the position of the teeth within the mouth. Aesthetic Dento-Facial Associates in Sandy Springs utilizes state-of-the-art 3-D imaging and offers several options for orthodontia to help reposition your teeth to ensure a healthy bite—and yes, also to give you that winning smile.
Just as every mouth is different, every case is a little unique when it comes to orthodontic procedure. Traditional orthodontics typically involve installing metal braces (metal wires attached to brackets placed on the teeth) and adjusting the tension of the wires periodically until the teeth have moved into their proper place. A retainer is often prescribed after the braces are removed.
While traditional braces are a tried-and-true method, Aesthetic Dento-Facial Associates were pioneers in the use of Invisalign orthodontics, a method we still recommend today for many of our patients. A much less invasive and more aesthetically pleasing method, Invisalign uses a series of invisible trays to gently reposition your teeth over time.
Whether you choose traditional braces or Invisalign, the dentists at Aesthetic Dento-Facial Associates will utilize low-radiation CT scans to create a 3-D image of your mouth, and will discuss with you at length your options for improving your bite and your smile.
