Experienced Orthodontics for Adults
A straight set of teeth not only improves appearance but also improves hygiene management and the ability to maintain optimum oral health. Bradley Dilling, DMD and his team at Avalon Dental provide adults in Fort Myers, Sanibel, and Cape Coral with comprehensive care to improve appearance using reliable orthodontic solutions.
While traditional braces have their place in modern dentistry as a reliable solution for severe cases of malocclusion, many individuals only require minor work to greatly improve the esthetics of their smile. At Avalon Dental, we offer alternative teeth alignment services that provide straighter teeth without the negative effect of drawing unwanted attention.
Methods we offer include:
Invisalign® utilizes a series of clear aligning trays to gradually guide teeth into a uniform position. Usually completed within two years, this alignment method allows patients the most discreet method modern dentistry has to offer to realign teeth. Computer-aided design technology helps to craft precision aligners to custom-fit each individual’s bite. Additionally, Invisalign is removable, making it easier to eat comfortably and maintain proper dental hygiene without additional effort.
Alignment with Invisalign is highly coveted for its metal-free design and virtually invisible treatment method. While effective, patients are required to wear Invisalign trays for at least 20 hours each day, making this option preferable to those with a great sense of responsibility.
Six Month Smiles® are clear braces disguised to appear as part of natural teeth. Following the footsteps of traditional braces, Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to gradually adjust teeth into an ideal position.
Patients prefer this method for its affordability and quickness of treatment, usually completed in as little as six months.
Why Straighten Teeth?
Misaligned teeth are difficult to properly care for, as the crowded teeth can be difficult to properly brush and floss. If left untreated, misaligned teeth can lead to:
- Increased Likelihood of Gum Disease
- Uneven wear on teeth
- Abnormal Growth
- Risk of Developing TMJ Dysfunction
Adults looking to straighten their smile after a lifetime of crooked teeth can look to Avalon dental for comprehensive assistance. Using the aforementioned methods, Dr. Dilling can address gaps between teeth, overcrowding, crooked teeth, crossbite, and minor overbite and underbite.
