Orthodontics is a dental specialty that involves correcting teeth that are improperly positioned. Brigham City Smiles is proud to offer the best and most up-to-date orthodontic services for our patients, which includes both traditional braces and clear aligners.
Our Dentists treat malocclusions which are often called bad bites. This is when a client bites down and their teeth do not line up correctly. We also treat crooked teeth or teeth that simply do not line up correctly.
While orthodontics can be considered mostly cosmetic procedures, it is important to fix these problems for a healthy mouth. Teeth that are crooked or do not line up are the perfect place for food and bacteria to hide. They can also be hard to clean, leading to cavities and other problems down the line. The goal in treating problem teeth are to ensure a healthy mouth in the future. It is important to close any gaps between teeth and to make sure that the teeth all line up correctly. Sometimes teeth are crooked and need to be straightened up in the mouth. Orthodontics can also improve eating and even a client’s speech in some cases.
ClearCorrect clear aligners straighten teeth invisibly, without metal braces.
How It Works:
If you’re a good candidate for clear aligners, your doctor will take photos and x-rays, use a scanner or impressions to capture the shape of your teeth, and submit your prescription to ClearCorrect.
Wear your aligners
We’ll make a series of aligners customized to apply pressure to the teeth that you want to move.
Your doctor will check your progress periodically and give you new sets of aligners. You’ll wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day, progressing through each step until your treatment is done.
