Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that is concerned with such dental irregularities as misaligned teeth, malocclusion (issues with misaligned contact of the upper and lower teeth), and sometimes the much less common but related issues that can occur with surrounding facial bones and overall structure. Misaligned teeth and jaws can often negatively impact oral appearance, but it can be much more serious than that.
When you consider the importance of orthodontics in growing teens, it’s easy to understand the commonly employed use of braces at this especially crucial point in the growth process.
Leaving orthodontic concerns unchecked in teens or adults can cause discomfort, affect appearance, and possibly cause more serious facial or cranial problems as well. We are happy to offer choice when it comes to your orthodontic needs.
Please consult with our dental practice in Dublin if you need or are interested in straightening you or your child’s teeth.
Here Are Some Of The Orthodontic Treatment Options We Offer:
“This is a fantastic, clean and professional facility. The dentist does not try to force sell anything. Very pleased. It is really a breath of fresh air to be able to get work done without getting pressured. He is very gentle and he got rid of an issue that I had tried to get another dentist to do years ago and they wanted to do other stuff ‘first’. I can’t say enough good things about this provider. Highly recommend, and I hate dentists.” 🙂Ginger B.
It is possible to comfortably straighten your teeth! Invisalign® custom aligners are much different than traditional metal braces. These comfortable, invisible plastic aligners made exclusively for your mouth can, for most, make all the hassle and discomfort of metal braces a complete thing of the past.
Achieving straighter, more beautiful teeth is now much easier with Invisalign®. This alternative to metal braces is highly preferred by both teenagers and adults.
This effective system of straightening your teeth initially involves collecting x-rays and impressions of your teeth in order to create the custom made plastic aligner trays. Once your personal trays are ready, you can begin the pain-free process towards a straighter smile.
Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before switching to the next tray in the progression. Merely making sure to keep in mind to adhere to your personalized timeline, each exchange of new trays can be done at home, by you, without having to visit the dentist continually to have anything tightened or re-adjusted.
The Invisalign® system has been notably popular with adults and has greatly increased the number of individuals over 18 that choose to straighten their teeth. The prospect of metal braces has always been especially dreaded by our adult patients.
Understandably, wearing obvious metal braces as an adult may be uncomfortable for most and Invisalign® invisible aligners are able to eliminate most of the downsides of traditional metal braces. This last fact can be attested to by all of our Invisalign® patients–regardless of age!
Fastbraces® can be a fantastic orthodontic solution for patients of any age suffering from problems of misalignment as well as a range of other issues including crowding, gaps or spacing, and bite concerns.
Even severe cases of tooth misalignment or malocclusion (misaligned bite) of any type can be fixed by the Fastbraces® realignment system. These type of orthodontic braces can perform truly amazing transformations. Furthermore, Fastbraces® work both more quickly and much more gently than traditional metal braces.
Timely, affordable, and gentle oral realignment may seem out of reach for some patients but with the combined orthodontic skill of Dr. Huang and the distinct process of the Fastbraces® system, it really can be a (pain-free) beautiful new reality.
The Fastbraces® system is a specialized process that works differently than other oral realignment methods. The difference is in the actual braces themselves as well as how they work to move each tooth into the correct position.
Unlike other methods, Fastbraces® move the root of the tooth along with the crown. This process is exclusive to Fastbraces® and allows for the quicker process, gentler approach, and extremely dramatic results. Fastbraces® are comprised of a unique construction of wire and brackets that can be manipulated by Dr. Huang in such a way that guides each tooth precisely where it needs to go.
With this system, there are no painful adjustments or recovery times from multiple trips to the dentist. In fact, patients report little to no discomfort through their Fastbraces® experience!
Traditional braces are a tried and true orthodontic solution for patients of any age who wish to straighten or fix misaligned teeth or malocclusion–including severe cases.
If you or your child is suffering from this type of oral problem, Dr. Huang and his orthodontic expertise can absolutely help! We know how important a beautiful, straight smile can be for building lifelong confidence and we want this for all of our patients. When orthodontic work is needed to reach that goal, All In One Dental has options.
After your initial consultation, Dr. Huang is able to explain what is needed and the best possible individual treatment plan for you to achieve that beautiful, improved smile!
Traditional braces work by use of single brackets attached to individual teeth and connected with wire to pull teeth into the correct position. As the crowns of your teeth are directed into place, the roots follow and with some very rare exceptions, the results are permanent.
Misaligned teeth can not only affect one’s appearance but can also cause unnecessary strain to your teeth and surrounding bones of the mouth. With teeth in their correct positions, eating, talking, breathing, smiling, and resting the jaw can all be easier and more comfortable.
Your child’s dentist is usually able to get a good orthodontic outlook around the age of seven. Roughly around this time, the need for braces becomes predictable and if they are deemed necessary, Dr. Huang can offer all the information you need, answer questions, and create a plan of treatment that includes methods and a timeline of the duration of the process.
Braces can help patients of almost any age to straighten their teeth, but generally speaking, as with any health-related issue, the earlier it is taken care of, the better the chances of optimal results.
