We do more than offer board-certified orthodontic services at Vision Dental. We also help you care for your braces throughout treatment to yield the best possible results while maintaining optimal oral health:
Removed a mesiodens (extra) tooth to create more space for an adequate eruption of upper adult canines. Phase I completed within one year. This is the first phase of our two-phase orthodontic treatment and the goal is to correct existing problems before moving forward with braces. Following the end of this treatment, the patient will take a one to a two-year resting period before being moved into phase two, which includes braces or Invisalign treatment.
Anterior teeth closed down after TADs and Braces for two years. Bite closure improves speech and chewing function as well as esthetics. TADs or Temporary Anchorage Devices, are small, hypoallergenic, medical-grade titanium alloy pins used to aid in orthodontic tooth movement. These are placed in rare cases when the benefits outweigh the risk and used in supplement with braces.
Openbite, underbite and crowding all corrected with braces and TADs within two years. TADS, or Temporary Anchorage Devices, are small pins aimed to assist with widening narrow jaw, closing large gaps, and eliminating the need for appliances. With the help of TADs and braces, this patient was able to attain their straight, dream smile in just two years.
Crowding and underbite were fully corrected after extractions and braces for two years. Patient now has better chewing function as well has enhanced smile esthetics. At our office, extractions are completed by general dentists and recovery is usually 1-7 days. Braces follow the extraction and can be placed in many forms, depending on the patients preferred treatment plan.
Thumbsucking habit stopped and open bite closed. Teeth well aligned after 1.5 years of braces treatment. The patient now has better speech and chewing function, as well as a beautiful smile. Braces treatment is ideal at at the adolescent stage for many reasons but especially because it allows issues to be corrected when the adult teeth are at their most naturally anatomic stage.
