Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry focused on diagnosing and correcting misaligned bite patterns and malpositioned teeth and jaws. Orthodontic procedures commonly straighten teeth and eliminate large spaces between teeth. They can also expand the arch to give the teeth more room, making it possible to move them into a better position.
Most orthodontic patients are children and teenagers, but adults can also benefit from orthodontics at any age. It’s never too late to improve your smile or increase your comfort!
Orthodontic treatment not only improves the look of your smile, but straight and well-aligned teeth are easier to clean, too. Correcting orthodontic problems such as overcrowded teeth, crooked teeth, or misaligned teeth can improve your overall dental health by helping to prevent gum disease, tooth decay, and tooth loss.
A Smiling Heart Dentistry offers several orthodontic procedures, including:
A DNA appliance is a removable device that you wear at night to widen the upper arch. It can correct teeth alignment, guide the growth of the jaw into a comfortable position, and expand the upper arch.
The Propel VPro+ uses advanced technology to reduce your overall orthodontic treatment time while relieving any discomfort experienced from your orthodontic treatments. The device delivers gentle vibrations to your mouth, which both stimulates a faster treatment and reduces discomfort. It works in just five minutes per day.
MOPS (micro-osteoperforation) is an orthodontic technique to stimulate bone remodeling. It allows the teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal positioning. Patients using the MOPS system finish their braces or clear alignment treatment faster.
Propel VPro+ improves orthodontic treatment mechanically and biologically with its unique vibration feature. Not only does the device reduce discomfort, but it also works to reduce treatment time up to 64%, reduces retainer wear and tear, and improves the predictability of teeth movement.
