At Advanced Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we provide effective orthodontic treatments to help our patients enjoy a beautiful smile and better oral health (and find out why else our patients choose our cosmetic dentists in Alpharetta).

Fix crooked teeth with orthodontics

Orthodontics is the area of dentistry concerned with correcting and preventing problems with the position of one’s teeth and bite. Commonly, it involves the use of braces and other appliances. Orthodontic treatment can also involve tooth extractions or other surgical procedures. A dentist who provides orthodontic treatment is called an orthodontist.

What is a malocclusion?

A malocclusion is a bite problem in which the top and bottom teeth do not align properly. Malocclusions can take many forms, such as underbites, overbites, and crossbites. Some malocclusions involve teeth that are crowded, spaced too far apart, protruding, or have come in through the gums out of place.

Who can benefit from orthodontic treatment?

Patients of all ages who have crooked teeth, gaps or crowding, bite problems, or other issues can greatly benefit from undergoing orthodontic treatment. When teeth are out of their proper positions, some teeth will end up doing more work than others, causing uneven wear.

  • Patients with very crooked teeth may have difficulty eating or speaking clearly.
  • It can also be difficult to maintain proper oral hygiene when teeth are crooked, so getting orthodontic treatment can help prevent decay, as well.
  • In addition to correcting problems that impact the patient’s oral health or interfere with the patient’s ability to eat or speak normally, orthodontic treatment is often used to improve the patient’s appearance.
  • Straightening one’s teeth frequently leads to higher self esteem and more confidence.

What kinds of braces are available?

For kids, traditional metal braces are the best option. These are created out of stainless steel and are cemented to the fronts of the teeth. They can only be removed by an orthodontist.

Teenagers can use metal braces, but they also have the option of using the SureSmile® clear braces system. SureSmile consists of a series of clear, plastic aligners that can be removed for meals or when brushing. SureSmile orthodontic treatment revolutionizes the way we achieve perfect smiles, offering unparalleled precision and faster results compared to traditional braces.

Adults and teens can benefit from SureSmile clear aligners. Many choose SureSmile because the aligners are barely noticeable and conveniently removable.

If you’ve been dreaming of a straight, beautiful smile but are hesitant about the discomfort and long treatment times associated with conventional methods, SureSmile is the solution you’ve been waiting for.

How does SureSmile work?

At the core of SureSmile is advanced 3D imaging and computer-assisted design. This technology allows orthodontists to create a highly detailed model of your teeth and jaw structure.

With this model, your orthodontist can plan the exact movements of your teeth with pinpoint accuracy, ensuring the most efficient path to your ideal smile. The precision of SureSmile means fewer adjustments and shorter treatment times, often by as much as 30% less than traditional braces.

More SureSmile Benefits

But the benefits of SureSmile don’t stop at efficiency. The customized archwires used in SureSmile treatments are robotically bent to perfectly match your treatment plan. This results in a more comfortable experience, as the wires apply gentle, consistent pressure to move your teeth into their desired positions.

Patients report less discomfort and fewer visits to the orthodontist, making the treatment not only faster but also more convenient.

What care is needed after orthodontic treatment?

Patients who have had braces or used another orthodontic appliance usually need a retainer afterward. An orthodontic retainer is a simple appliance worn to prevent the teeth from shifting back out of place. Some patients have retainers that are removable and worn at night, and others have retainers that are permanently attached to the back of his or her teeth.
