What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics focuses on diagnosing and treating dental abnormalities that may influence the alignment of your teeth and jaws. Our dentists use orthodontic treatments to improve a patient's ability to chew, speak, and smile. While orthodontic treatment is considered to be for children or teenagers, Dr. Löberg can help patients of all ages rejuvenate their smiles’ function and appearance.
You may be an ideal candidate for orthodontic treatment if you struggle with:
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Overbites, underbites, crossbites, etc.
- Misaligned jaws
- Unevenly spaced teeth
Our Orthodontic Treatments
Our dentists are certified Premier Invisalign® providers and have treated several patients with this revolutionary clear aligner treatment. Invisalign offers many benefits, including:
- Discreet, natural appearance
- Treats in half the time as metal braces
- Removable for your convenience
- No dietary restrictions
- Personalized, comfortable fit
- No frequent visits to the dentist required
Invisalign® Teen is a modified version of Invisalign designed for teenage patients. While patients must have all their permanent teeth for treatment, the aligners accommodate growing jaws and teeth structures. Invisalign Teen trays also feature a blue dot indicator so parents can track their child’s treatment and ensure they’re wearing the aligners for 20 to 22 hours.
Six-Month Smiles is a cosmetic orthodontic solution for patients looking to straighten their teeth and achieve stunning smiles. This clear braces system is an affordable treatment for patients looking to enhance their teeth’s image without extensive treatment. As its name implies, Six Month Smiles attaches to the fronts of your teeth to improve their appearance in as few as six months.
Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces are a tried-and-true orthodontic appliance ideal for patients of all ages looking to resolve bite alignment issues. Advancements in orthodontic technology have made braces more comfortable and sleek than ever. Your dentist may recommend traditional braces for more severe orthodontic problems that can’t be treated by clear aligners.
Frequently Asked Questions
What causes orthodontic problems?
Orthodontic problems can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Extra teeth
- Jaw formation and growth issues
Other factors such as genetics, dental trauma, and even excessive thumb-sucking as a baby can all contribute to orthodontic issues. If you suspect your teeth or jaw aren’t aligned, schedule an appointment with your dentist or orthodontist.
Why is orthodontic treatment necessary?
Without orthodontic treatment, issues like misaligned teeth and jaws can wreak havoc on your oral health. Crooked teeth are difficult to keep clean and can cause frequent toothaches. Poor oral hygiene mixed with pre-existing dental pain can make daily life challenging. Visit your dentist for personalized orthodontic care to avoid these complications.
Does insurance cover orthodontic treatment?
Most dental insurance providers will cover the cost of orthodontics if it’s deemed necessary treatment. It’s best to contact your insurance carrier beforehand to gain a better understanding of your plan’s benefits.
Does orthodontic treatment hurt?
It’s normal to experience mild discomfort in the early stages of your orthodontic treatment. Any soreness should fade within a few weeks as you grow accustomed to your orthodontic appliance. If you still experience pain after this time, contact your dentist or orthodontist to make sure there isn’t a complication.
