It’s never too late to get the flawless smile of your dreams. Whether you choose traditional bracket and band braces or ClearCorrect aligners, orthodontic treatment at JL Dental offers patients superior smile correction in a friendly dental office setting. Most general dental practitioners don’t offer traditional orthodontic treatment in-office, but JL Dental is committed to providing patients with a wide variety of quality dental care for the whole family. It’s our goal to offer patients the dental services they need in an office they are already comfortable with, and that includes orthodontic treatments to correct any misalignment.
Metal mouth, brace face, head gear. Traditional braces are often perceived negatively, but it’s no surprise to your Arnold, MO dentist that more adolescent, teen, and adult patients choose this smile correction option every year. Unlike metal braces even a decade ago, the braces we offer today are smaller and less obtrusive. The phrase “low profile” is used to describe some of the newer braces systems that offer excellent results with smaller brackets and bands. While many patients worry about how braces look, low profile braces not only look better, but feel better too because they don’t protrude as far from the surface of teeth. For image conscious adults and teens, we even offer tooth-colored traditional braces for a more conspicuous treatment plan. Bracket and band braces take between 18 and 24 months to correct smile alignment, but the results are predictable and long lasting. Even the most severe orthodontic conditions can be treated with traditional braces.
ClearCorrect Alignment Tray Orthodontics
Patients who wish to utilize a more cosmetically appealing braces system, those whose schedule prevents them from maintaining regular orthodontist appointments, or who lack dexterity to care for braces, may want to consider ClearCorrect. As the name implies, this orthodontic treatment utilizes a series of clear plastic alignment trays to correct alignment. These trays are removed during meals and while brushing and flossing, so there’s no impact on diet or dental care. Patients wear a set of trays for a predetermined time period and replace with the next set in the series, so orthodontist appointments are less frequent and much briefer than those necessary for traditional braces. ClearCorrect treatment is typically completed in under a year, and patients never worry about their appearance as ClearCorrect alignment trays are virtually invisible to the casual observer.
