Orthodontics in Littleton & Highlands Ranch

Smile Designer Offers Invisalign & Orthodontics

Orthodontics is the dental specialty that focuses on not only preventing teeth irregularities, but also helping to gradually correct them, which helps patients to achieve a beautiful smile that can last a lifetime. To create the desired tooth placement, the teeth need to be moved into line. This is accomplished by applying light pressure to the teeth, such as that created by orthodontic appliances such as traditional braces. An alternative to braces for some patients is Invisalign, which accomplished pressure application using aligners.

Although having a straight smile does build self-esteem and encourage confidence, getting braces is not always aboutcosmetic concerns. When your teeth are not aligned properly, your mouth's health can suffer. Misalignment can cause plaque buildup and undue wear and tear on your teeth. The price of orthodontics varies depending on each unique situation, but you may probably end up paying between $3600 - 4800. The best way to get a quote is to make an appointment for a free consultation with us.

Signs You or Your Child May Need Orthodontics

You are never too old for braces, but there may be limitations as to what can be done. When a child's permanent teeth are in, they can be examined by an orthodontist. It is not always easy to tell if your child is in need of braces. This is why we recommend having an evaluation no later than the age of seven.

Here are some clues that may indicate the need for orthodontic attention:

  • Baby teeth are lost either too early or too late
  • Patient is having trouble chewing and/or biting
  • Patient is beginning to breathe through the mouth
  • Thumb-sucking becomes a regular habit
  • Teeth become crowded, misplaced, or blocked out
  • Jaws move either too far forward or too far back
  • Patient begins biting their cheek or the roof of their mouth
  • Teeth begin to protrude too far forward
  • Upper and lower teeth no longer meet correctly
  • Facial appearance begins to look "unbalanced"
  • Patient begins to grind and/or clench their teeth

About Invisalign

At Smile Designer, we offer Invisalign as an alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign are comfortable to wear and are virtually undetectable. Invisalign aligners are worn all the time except when you eat, drink, brush, and floss. Invisalign has some advantages over braces. There is no metal, so you will not get cuts and abrasions in your mouth. There are no food restrictions because you take Invisalign out to eat, and brushing and flossing are not problematic as they can be with traditional braces. Whether you choose braces or Invisalign, investing in your smile is a wise idea. Let us help you get a happy and healthy smile.
