What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that corrects a vast array of dental conditions, such as crowding, protruding/poorly spaced teeth, overbites, underbites, and other misalignments. Drs. Drake and Jacobson have extensive experience realigning crooked, overlapping, and gapped teeth using orthodontics, and they can prevent potentially serious problems from occurring. This allows the patient to receive convenient treatment from their dentists, and potentially avoid the inconvenience of having to be referred to an orthodontist.
Park West Dental’s Orthodontics
The term “orthodontics” most likely evokes images of silver and gray wired braces attached to a teenager’s teeth, along with an endless number of trips to the orthodontist. But modern-day orthodontics allow us to provide some teeth straightening orthodontic treatments — most of which are clear or nearly invisible — along with routine, restorative, and cosmetic care. We offer two great solutions: Invisalign® and Fastbraces®.
Fastbraces allow you to achieve a straighter smile in around 120 days!
Clear and removable aligners that straighten your teeth over the course of 12 months
How Long Does It Take to Straighten Teeth?
At Park West Dental, we have many teeth straightening solutions available for patients of all ages, whether you’re a child, a teen, or an adult! We specialize in using solutions that are nearly invisible. These methods can significantly change your alignment in as little as six months. The time it will take to straighten your teeth largely depends on the severity of your condition.
