Boost your self-esteem and smile confidently by improving the alignment of your teeth with orthodontic treatment.
Helping our patients achieve a healthy, beautiful, natural smile is at the heart of what we do at The Parade Dental Practice. Orthodontic treatment will correct teeth that are crowded, crooked or affect how you look or feel. In the long term, straighter teeth will enhance your smile and improve your teeth’s function.
Technology has advanced for orthodontics, and metal braces – often an expensive and longer treatment for patients – are no longer the only option. Clear aligners, which are barely noticeable and more comfortable, have become a popular choice for patients of all ages who want to align and correct the position of their teeth.
Clear aligners are used in many orthodontic treatments. The series of custom aligners are transparent and lightweight trays that slowly guide your teeth into the proper position. The result is straighter teeth and an improvement in your smile’s appearance.
Our dentists offer clear aligners at The Parade Dental Practice, enabling you to reposition your teeth discreetly. The treatment consists of a series of special appliances made for comfort and flexibility that are nearly invisible to the eye when worn.
Easy to use and wear, the removable aligner trays have no brackets, metal, or wires. Over time, each aligner will shift and bring your teeth closer to a straighter smile.
Clear aligners are quick and easy to remove as needed for eating, drinking, or cleaning. Remember to insert the aligner back into your mouth to keep your orthodontic progress on track.
Clear aligners are an excellent choice for achieving a symmetrical, brighter smile. Those who want to make minor corrections to their smile or teeth alignment can benefit from these types of orthodontic appliances.
Here are some of the benefits of choosing this orthodontic treatment option:
Many people choose to get orthodontic treatment for aesthetic or functional reasons. The treatment aims to move each tooth into the correct position by applying targeted and precise pressure with the help of braces or clear aligners.
Orthodontics can address other types of dental issues like:
For more extensive orthodontic treatment, we typically refer our patients to Ewell Orthodontics, which is located beside our practice, and other orthodontists in the surrounding areas.
When you’re ready, our welcoming dental team in Ewell will support you towards getting a straighter, brighter smile. We’re happy to answer any questions or concerns about orthodontics and to discuss treatment options.
Every patient has a special set of teeth with unique oral health needs. Many details like age, space in the mouth, and the condition of the teeth will impact the length of orthodontic treatment. Straightening teeth may take months or years and typically take longer for adults than teenagers.
When you visit our team for a consultation, we’ll discuss an estimated time for your treatment plan. After starting your orthodontic treatment and tracking your progress, we’ll be able to make adjustments to the timeline.
After your orthodontic treatment, caring for your teeth is vital in the months and years ahead. This includes keeping up with good oral hygiene and going to routine dental check-ups to monitor the health of your teeth and gums. Patients may be given a retainer to wear to prevent teeth from returning to their original position. Your dentist will provide instructions and tips for using the retainer (most patients will only need to wear the appliance at night).
