Why Choose Us for Orthodontics?
- Able to treat patients of all ages
- Invisalign: Straighter teeth without the mouthful of metal
- 30% faster treatment times with Propel & Acceledent
For younger patients dealing with crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, there is no better solution available today than metal braces. Specially bent wires held onto the teeth using brackets apply a gentle but consistent force that can effectively straighten them and correct bite issues all at once. They’re able to handle even the most complex cases with ease, and thankfully, the appliance now has a much more subtle appearance than the braces you probably saw as a child!
If you’re an adult with misaligned teeth, then the thought of going to work or seeing friends with a mouthful of metal braces is probably enough to make you avoid orthodontics altogether. With Invisalign, however, you now have the option to straighten your teeth without sacrificing your daily appearance in the process. Custom-made crystal-clear aligner trays slide over the teeth and gradually move them into place, and they are so discreet looking that no one will notice you’re using Invisalign unless you tell them!
Six Month Smiles
For patients who are interested in straightening their teeth solely for cosmetic reasons, Six Month Smiles is a fast and concentrated treatment designed just for them. Brackets and wires are used to only move the most prominent front teeth. Because fewer teeth are involved compared to a traditional braces treatment, they shift much, much faster without the use of additional force. In as little as six months, patients can see a dramatic improvement in the appearance of their smile.
Propel uses your body’s own healing ability to speed up any orthodontic treatment. Using a small, pen-like instrument, Dr. Lankupalli will make tiny holes in the bone near your teeth, and this will enable them to shift more easily whether you’re using braces, Invisalign, or Six Month Smiles. The treatment itself is completely painless, and it can speed up orthodontics by as much as 30%, helping patients enjoy their final results months ahead of time.
With Acceledent, a patient only needs to use a small handheld device for 20 minutes a day to dramatically shorten their orthodontic treatment time. It consists of a mouthpiece attached to a handle that causes it to vibrate. Patients simply have to place their teeth into the mouthpiece, and the vibrations actually speed up the teeth and surrounding bone’s response to the forces applied by orthodontics, helping them move much faster without adjusting the treatment itself.
