Offers orthodontic solutions for patients of all ages and aspirations. Treatment options are designed to work with and not against nature by simply assisting or reminding the body of your facial development’s natural genetic intention.
This is approached by understanding that as we go through childhood and become adults, we can often be confronted with environmental and behavioral circumstances that can conspire against the natural and intended growth and development of our face.
The underlying philosophy of all the Dental Healing Arts techniques is not just to deliver straight teeth, but also balanced faces and beautiful smiles. Full mouth braces are still regarded as the benchmark for achieving straight teeth and the perfect bite.
Fixed orthodontics is the traditional treatment you would typically think of when someone mentions braces. Braces aren’t what they used to be. They have come a long way in recent years to be better than ever.
Compared to clear aligners, braces are going to be a much better option if your teeth are severely misaligned. Clear aligners need to be continuously switched out with new ones to straighten the teeth gradually. The process is much more streamlined through fixed orthodontics.
One of the most significant benefits of fixed orthodontics is that you won’t have to worry about wearing them. If you’ve ever tried clear aligners before, you’ve probably noticed that it can be a chore remembering to put them in. Plus, if they ever get uncomfortable, you might be motivated not to wear them.
With fixed orthodontics, you won’t have to hold yourself accountable. Some other great benefits you’ll notice when your treatment is finished include:
Do you ever shy away from smiling? Are you unhappy with the way your teeth look? If the answer is yes, braces can make a positive change in your life. When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Fotek will examine your mouth to see if everything looks healthy.
If there are no signs of infection or other issues that need to be taken care of first, we will begin the preparation stages of your braces. Depending on the severity of your misalignment, the length of treatment can vary drastically. So, we will go over the estimated timeline with you during your appointment until you are comfortable.
