Crooked teeth and an off bite can cause more than just feelings of insecurity – crooked teeth and a bad bite will lead to possible problems with TMJ discomfort, increase your risk of cavities and gum disease, and even contribute to possible tooth loss. But you don’t have to suffer with orthodontic issues. Dr. Mack Greder and Dr. Jennifer Greder offer treatment for certain orthodontic problems at Greder Dental.
There is no need to worry about wearing metal braces and brackets for two or more years when you want to improve the alignment of your smile. Invisalign is a clear braces system that uses a series of custom-fit aligners to gradually bring your teeth into the proper position. The discreet orthodontic treatment can be used to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Overbite, underbite, or crossbite
Unlike conventional braces, which are affixed to the surface of the teeth, Invisalign trays are removable. That means you do not have to base your diet on your orthodontic treatment, and brushing and flossing are just as easy as before you had braces. The average treatment with Invisalign is also just about one year, or about six months less than conventional braces.
Adults and older teens alike can benefit from subtle orthodontic treatment with Invisalign from the dentist in Omaha.
Fastbraces and Six Month Smiles
When misalignments in the front teeth affect the appearance of your smile, an accelerated orthodontic treatment can provide the aesthetic improvements you want, faster than you probably imagined possible. Fastbraces and Six Month Smiles are two accelerated treatment options at Greder Dental.
Fastbraces uses a patented design, with brackets that move the roots of your teeth at the same time as their crowns. Traditional orthodontics focus on the crown and then the root -- but the Fastbraces method has been proven effective for producing real results, faster.
Greder Dental also offers Six Month Smiles, which uses tooth-colored brackets and wires to realign your teeth. Instead of overhauling the alignment of your bite, Six Month Smiles works by focusing on the teeth that show when you smile.
It’s never too late to improve the alignment of your bite. Patients in Douglas County or the Omaha-Council Bluffs Metro Area should request a consultation to learn more!
