Orthodontics

Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you, so having straight, beautiful teeth is something that most people highly value. One of the best ways to align crooked or gapped teeth is through orthodontics. Modern orthodontic treatment has come a long way thanks to new technology that makes metal brackets smaller and the development of invisible aligners. Now, patients can get straight teeth with much less hassle and achieve results discreetly. At Ponderosa Dental Group, we even have an in-house orthodontist to help ensure your smile achieves its best results and you don’t have to worry about being referred to other practices.

Why Choose Traditional Braces?

Traditional metal brackets and wires are a time-tested solution for correcting smile alignment concerns. This option has proven effective for correcting even the most difficult cases because of how flexible the orthodontic system can be. Those with crowded teeth or who have impacted canines can benefit from traditional braces because this is one of the only systems that can improve these concerns. Thanks to the flexibility of the wires and the strength of the brackets, traditional braces can achieve predictable results. Additionally, new technology has made traditional braces smaller and more comfortable to wear than they were years ago. There are even options for clear brackets or porcelain brackets to blend in with the natural color of the teeth. 

Straighten Teeth Discreetly with Invisalign®

One of the biggest challenges people face when choosing braces is the fact that they are very obvious within the smile. Most patients do not like the metal look on their teeth, so having a discreet option makes orthodontic treatment much more attractive. Invisalign utilizes clear plastic aligners instead of metal, making the treatment option virtually invisible within the smile. Additionally, these aligners are removable, meaning patients can take them out when they want to eat or brush their teeth. This helps patients keep a cleaner smile during orthodontic care and allows them to eat their favorite foods without worry about breaking their brackets.
