When people think of orthodontic treatments, the first one that usually pops in their mind is traditional braces. These utilize metal brackets and wires to gently and strategically shift your teeth into their ideal positions, addressing bite misalignment, crowded and crooked teeth, and other orthodontic issues that can affect the appearance and health of your smile. This orthodontic treatment is a great option for teens or adults!
Clear aligners are a discreet, customized orthodontic treatment that utilizes BPA-free plastic to custom craft dental trays that place a carefully calculated amount of pressure on the teeth to shift them into their ideal positions. Since they’re removable, you can take them out of your mouth whenever you need to, allowing you to effectively brush and floss throughout your treatment and eat all of your favorite foods!
Dr. Hyland has completed specialized training on early childhood intervention orthodontics and offers several children’s appliances to help expand their pallet, prevent crowding as they get older, and help them avoid needing serious orthodontic intervention down the road. Dr. Hyland prefers to do an expansion of the palate, instead of just extracting the teeth from your child's mouth.
