Improve Your Alignment With Invisalign And More!

For most people, crooked and misaligned teeth can be embarrassing. They can leave you second-guessing your smile.

But the truth is, misaligned teeth can also be detrimental to long-term oral health. Shifting teeth and misalignments can lead to jaw breakdowns, gum disease, and even tooth decay in some cases.

That’s why we’re proud here at Wisconsin Dental Wellness to offer comprehensive alignment services including braces and clear aligners. We work with families all across our community to straighten smiles once and forever.

Subtle, Invisible Orthodontic Treatment

 

At Wisconsin Dental Wellness, we offer a number of different options for orthodontic correction using clear plastic aligners. Our options include Invisalign, ClearCorrect, MTM Clear Aligners, Inman Aligners, and Smart Moves Clear Aligners. At your orthodontic consultation, Dr. Lau will assess your smile and make recommendations about which treatment is right for your orthodontic needs.
How do Clear Plastic Aligners Work?

Each aligner system uses a different type of plastic, but each system operates using the same basic principles. Rather than using a “bracket-and-wire” system like traditional braces, these aligners use a retainer-like, hard plastic aligner to shift the position of your teeth. Clear aligners are extremely thin, yet durable. None of these aligner options interfere with speech, and they can be removed for eating and drinking, brushing and flossing, and other daily activities. For these reasons, clear aligners have become very popular among orthodontic patients who would like to avoid highly visible traditional metal braces.

What to Expect in the Treatment Process

The treatment process for each aligner system is very similar. During your consultation, Dr. Lau will determine whether you are a good candidate for clear aligners and help you decide which system is right for you. Next, he will take images and impressions of your teeth, which are then sent to a third-party lab where your aligners are designed and manufactured. You’ll wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, for 20-22 hours per day. Every 6 weeks, you’ll come in for a quick oral exam at Wisconsin Dental Wellness and Dr. Lau will check the progress of your treatment and give you your next sets of aligners. Treatment time is typically just under a year, though this can vary.

Why Choose Clear Aligners?
  • Removable and comfortable - No uncomfortable metal components like wires and brackets are involved, and the pressure exerted is more gentle and even than traditional braces. Since they’re removable, you can eat whatever you want, and brush and floss more effectively.
  • Virtually invisible - Clear aligners sit flush on your teeth and are extremely thin, so it’s almost impossible for others to notice that you’re wearing them. Nobody has to know that you’re in the middle of orthodontic treatment!
  • Faster treatment time - Treatment with traditional braces usually lasts two or more years. In contrast, aligner systems usually require less than a year for the same results, though this varies based on your particular case.

Tried and True Orthodontics With Traditional Metal Braces

 

Traditional metal braces use a system of brackets, wires and rubber bands to slowly reposition the teeth, and adjust the bite, jaw position, and more. They have been used for decades, and are the best option for patients who have serious issues with jaw malpositioning, or significantly gapped, crowded or rotated teeth. Typical treatment time is around 2 years for most patients, though this varies significantly based on your particular situation and oral condition. Some patients may be able to correct their smile in a significantly shorter period of time.
Quickly Correct Minor Alignment Issues With Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are made of tooth-colored brackets and wires that can correct minor flaws and aesthetic issues with your smile, typically within a short six month period. This treatment can correct gapped, crooked, or asymmetrical smiles, as well as uneven gum lines. While treatment is fast, Six Month Smiles is not right for every orthodontic case. If you have significantly crooked teeth or other orthodontic issues, you may require traditional braces or Invisalign. Call today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lau and determine which treatment option is right for you.
