At Dream Dentistry & Sleep Care, we strive to make our online home a good source of dentistry-related information for you and your family. That’s why we recently went through the effort of revamping this website. When you come to visit us in-person you will immediately sense that you are right where you belong. That’s because we provide a welcoming environment and we do our best to make it easier for you to get all the dental solutions you need to keep your smile looking its best at every stage of life.
Today we’d like to let you in on a little secret: most of us were not born with perfectly shaped, evenly spaced teeth. And if are you finally ready to transform your collection of crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth into something special, we can help you with a program of short-term orthodontics!
If you are a doubter, please keep reading. We are about to convince you that you have not missed your window of opportunity for orthodontic treatment even if you are well past your teen years now. What’s more, you do not have to humiliate yourself by wearing metal brackets and wires for 2-3 years in front of your friends and business associates! Regardless of your age or background, our team can make your transformation happen in a much quicker fashion, without the use of any metal whatsoever.
Ready To Hear More?
Our team is certified to place invisible orthodontic aligners known as ClearCorrect and many of our patients have had great success correcting alignment and bite problems with this method.
ClearCorrect Aligners Are Better Than Brackets And Wires
Our short-term orthodontics system consists of a series of custom-made soft plastic retainers that slip directly over your teeth for a comfortable fit throughout your treatment.
Once you have been determined to be a good candidate for clear aligners, Dr. Roeder or Dr. Kulp will do a complete workup and diagnosis of your alignment and bite problems, and prescribe a series of clear aligners to correct and straighten your teeth.
Each aligner tightly molds to your teeth, exerting gradual pressure to shift and rotate your teeth into alignment.
The Advantages Are Clear
You will need to wear your aligners most of each day for several weeks at a stretch, and then start another one to keep the process moving forward. The nice thing is that you can do this on your own, so there is no need for monthly in-office adjustments like conventional braces would require.
And, get this: you can take your clear aligners out for eating and cleaning purposes, which makes for a much more pleasant experience than treatments involving metal hardware. It also eliminates the need for special tools and dietary restrictions.
The total treatment time should take somewhere between 10 and 20 months, depending on the severity of your issues. And no one will ever know about the construction zone in your mouth until the process is complete and you emerge with a radiant new smile.
Do Clear Orthodontic Aligners Work For All Patients?
To kickstart the process, you will need to come in for a consultation with our Quakertown dental team. We have found that our orthodontic aligners are very effective for people with minor crowding, gaps between their teeth, and mild alignment problems. Hopefully they will be just the right fit for your current needs and budget!
Just so you know: patients who have severe alignment and bite problems, or have very wide spaces between their teeth, would probably benefit from a more complex treatment with traditional orthodontics.
Get Started Right Away!
