I am interested in purchasing braces but do not like the brackets and wires involved. Is there an option to straighten my teeth without using traditional braces?

Despite the rise in popularity of Invisalign in Beaufort and other areas like Bluffton and Hilton Head Island, we get this question very often. To answer that question: yes, there is absolutely an alternative to traditional braces! If you hadn’t already guessed, it’s called Invisalign. This treatment uses a clear application, offering a much more discrete treatment option for clients. Your friends and even your family won’t know that you’re straightening your teeth! What’s more, there are no wires or brackets involved in this treatment, making for a more comfortable option for many patients.

Invisalign seems like the perfect treatment for me, but how does it work?

The Invisalign system starts when we create a set of computer-generated, custom-made aligners made from plastic specifically for you. These aligners are designed to gradually guide your teeth to their proper positions. The goal is to make slight changes over time, resulting in a beautiful smile and an overall increase in wellbeing. Have more questions? No worries! During your consultation, your orthodontist in Bluffton will explain this process step-by-step to make sure you have a firm grasp of the Invisalign system.

I’m in my mid-30’s and have never had braces. I’ve dealt with crooked teeth my whole life! Have I aged myself out of orthodontics in Beaufort?

Here’s a fact that might be surprising to readers: About 25% of orthodontics patients are adults! While it may be more common to see younger people with braces, there are many adults with crooked teeth who missed out on adolescent orthodontics treatments. The good news? It’s never too late for you to have a healthy, straight, beautiful smile. If you’re self-conscious about friends or colleagues noticing your adult braces, ask about our orthodontist in Beaufort about Invisalign treatments for a more discrete way to straighten your teeth.

My child just turned 8 years old. I’m concerned about their crooked teeth. Is now a good time to learn more about orthodontics in Hilton Head Island?

Having an orthodontic treatment during your child’s early years is a great idea. In fact, The American Association of Orthodontists advises that children should have their first orthodontic consultation by the age of seven! This way, your child’s teeth and bite can be monitored so that corrections can be made at an early age. By beginning treatment early, we have the opportunity to spot and fix your child’s issues before they become more serious as he or she ages. This often saves time and money and sets your child up for a healthy life from both a medical and social standpoint. You probably have many more questions about this process – we encourage you to schedule a time to talk with our doctors so that we can figure out how we can best address your orthodontic needs.

What happens after my child’s braces are removed?

When your child’s braces are removed, your orthodontist in Bluffton will consult with you about how to maintain his or her beautiful smile. The most common way to maintain orthodontic treatments is with a retainer, which helps prevent teeth from going back to their original positions. Retainers are custom fitted to your child’s teeth, giving your child’s gums, muscles, and bones the chance to adapt to the recent changes experienced as a result of their successful braces treatment.

How do traditional braces work?

Consisting of bands, wires and metal brackets, traditional braces are the most common type of Beaufort orthodontics treatments available. These brackets are attached to your teeth and are connected with wires. These wires are adjusted over time, gradually realigning your teeth. The result is a stunning smile and improved oral health. If traditional braces aren’t your “cup of tea,” Beaufort Invisalign options are available for a more discrete solution.

How do I know if I need orthodontic surgery?

The best way to know for sure is to set up an appointment with one of our orthodontists in Hilton Head Island, Beaufort, or Bluffton so that we can see the extent of your oral problems. The most common need for surgery is to correct serious cases of malocclusion, more commonly referred to as a misaligned bite or crooked teeth. If you have spent years dealing with a serious over or underbite, surgery may be the only solution available to help you achieve proper oral health.
