Orthodontics & Teeth Straightening
At 818 Dental our practitioners are passionate about creating beautiful smiles! We believe that all of our patients are entitled to the smile they desire and have several treatment options available to encompass the needs of you and your family.
We offer orthodontic plates for children as young as 8. They are designed to straighten crooked teeth by developing the growth of the jaw to create space for newly erupting adult teeth. In some cases, orthodontic plates can eliminate the need for further intervention in the future.
Adolescents and Adults
For correction of misaligned adult teeth, our practitioners are trained in a range of orthodontic procedures. Orthodontics has developed a great deal in recent years. A huge effort has been placed on reducing the aesthetic impact of braces, so that nowadays all but the most severe malocclusions can be treated without the need to wear visible braces.
Inman Aligner – this is a fast and low cost way of correcting minor misalignment of the front teeth. It’s almost invisible, and produces results in just weeks, which makes it a great solution for many cases.
Invisalign – these clear invisible braces are now an established technique in orthodontics for correcting moderate misalignment. Using computer guidance, a series of braces is created which, worn sequentially over 12 to 18 months, incrementally bring the teeth to the desired alignment.
Braces – For severe crowding and misalignment we will generally resort to the traditional fixed braces.
