Why dentist in Willoughby Hills may suggest orthodontic alternatives such as Ortho-Tain
At Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills, many patients take the time to ask their dentist about alternatives to conventional orthodontics. When patients think about straightening their teeth, they are often associating this with the look of conventional metal wires and brackets covering their pearly whites for months, sometimes years. This can make patients reconsider orthodontic treatment. However, Dr. Michael Stern may discuss alternatives such as Ortho-Tain.
Ortho-Tain is a method of straightening the teeth that works a little differently from conventional braces or even aligner therapy. Instead, this particular system uses an oral appliance that is worn at night for early treatment of problems such as overbites, unwanted spaces, tooth rotation, and bite alignment. This oral appliance can gently reposition the teeth without any added complication to one’s daily activities or oral hygiene, making it a wonderful method of addressing malocclusion without having brackets and wires on the teeth and result in embarrassment and reduced self-confidence.
Ortho-Tain provides rapid results for patients as young as five years old, and can help patients achieve a more beautiful smile in less than a year. Once the teeth are in proper alignment, patients can enjoy improved oral health and confidence.
Dr. Michael Stern of Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills also offers clear braces with plastic aligner therapy such as Invisalign and ClearCorrect. These may also be considered for patients with mild to moderate malocclusion and bite alignment concerns. During the initial consultation visit, patients will go through a variety of diagnostics including x-rays to determine candidacy for each of these orthodontic methods and find out which is most appropriate for their specific situation.
New and existing patients are welcome to visit the practice of Dr. Michael Stern to learn more about the ways in which orthodontic alternatives can dramatically affect the beauty and function of one’s smile. Contact Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills today to book an appointment and discuss the ways in which Ortho-Tain, Invisalign, and ClearCorrect can enhance natural beauty in an affordable, effective manner.Back to Orthodontics Alternatives Home Page
