Orthodontic treatment can help you improve and straighten your smile, and can resolve jaw issues that interfere with your ability to speak and eat properly. Patients are more likely to take proper care of a beautiful smile, and straight teeth will also make you feel better about your appearance. At Wisconsin Dental Wellness, Dr. Lau will work with you to design a custom orthodontic program that will give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
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.
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.
Invisalign is the most well-known system of clear plastic aligners, but we also offer ClearCorrect, MTM Clear Aligners, Inman Aligners, and Smart Moves Clear Aligners. These treatments differ slightly, but they all use a series of clear, thin aligners to gently shift your teeth into proper position. These aligners do not impair speech and are virtually invisible, so nobody needs to know about your orthodontic treatment. During your orthodontic consultation, Dr. Lau will go over your options and help you decide which aligners are right for you.
