How Do Orthodontic Treatments Work?
Orthodontic treatments realign teeth to their optimal position by means of braces, aligners, retainers, and other devices that improve both the functionality and the appearance of the teeth and jaw, resulting in a straight and healthy smile.
Orthodontic treatment is not only designed to improve the appearance of your smile but improves the health of your teeth and gums as well. Sam Kadan, DMD Orthodontist, is dedicated to giving you the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve. Whether it’s for your teenage child or it’s for yourself, we are able to provide expert care to achieve that straight smile! Our office is conveniently located in Chalfont.
We offer a variety of different treatments to accomplish the desired results. When you first come into our office, you will have pictures and x-rays taken of your mouth and possibly a model of your bite. We will then create a treatment plan designed to work best for you and your needs.
Depending on your needs, you may require metal braces, clear braces, clear aligners, lingual braces or a less common teeth straightening regimen.
Common orthodontic treatments include:
- Metal Braces. Metal braces are the most synonymous when thinking of correcting teeth. However, you may be surprised to hear that metal braces are not the clunky orthodontic appliances they once were, they are smaller and lighter than ever.
- Clear Braces. Clear braces are brackets made of ceramic or composite materials designed to blend in with your teeth, making them harder to notice.
- Clear Aligners. Clear Aligners are practically come in a series of removable, clear plastic trays that gradually straighten teeth as they’re worn (for 22 hours per day). The most recognizable clear aligners are Invisalign®, which we are trained and certified to implement an Invisalign® treatment plan.
- Lingual Braces. Lingual braces provide the most unnoticeable form of orthodontic treatment because they are attached to the back of the teeth.
Typically, the active stage of orthodontic treatment lasts 6-30 months. Afterwards, a retainer will need to be worn for several months. When your orthodontic treatment is complete, the new smile we’ve worked together to create will be for a lifetime.
We accept a wide variety of insurances to help make your orthodontic experience even easier!
Why Select an Orthodontist vs. a Dentist?
If you suffer from a malocclusion or a problem with your bite or jaw, your dentist may recommend that you seek specialized orthodontic care. Orthodontists, such as Dr. Kadan, are dental specialists trained to specifically address and correct problems with tooth mobility and jaw function, while dentists are general practitioners who oversee more general dental health concerns. An orthodontist must first complete dental school to become a dentist and then complete an additional course of studies lasting several more years to more closely study tooth movement, jaw function, and facial aesthetics in order to be licensed as an orthodontist. Dr. Kadan is an experienced orthodontist who has additionally completed the requirements to obtain board certification.
Choosing a Good Orthodontist
When selecting a specialist to help straighten your teeth and correct any malocclusions or problems in your teeth and jaw, it is best to seek someone who has the proper credentials and a track record of successful treatments and many satisfied patients. Dr. Kadan is among the most renowned and respected orthodontists in the Bucks County and Philadelphia area, and one of the few board-certified orthodontists in the region.
