Orthodontic is a dental specialty that focuses on treating improper bites. At Lake Mountain Dental, orthodontics involves correcting the alignment of the teeth. A “bad bite” means your teeth don’t fit together correctly. You may need orthodontic treatment if your teeth are crooked, protrusive, or misaligned. This can be accomplished with braces, clear aligners, or traditional metal braces. Braces use brackets and wires to move the teeth into the desired position. Clear aligners are a series of clear, removable trays that fit over the teeth.
The Benefits of Orthodontics Treatments
Orthodontic treatment can address many orofacial issues, such as overcrowded teeth, excessive gaps, and malocclusion for teenagers or adults. These problems can prevent patients from enjoying their smiles and affect their oral health. Orthodontic treatment is beneficial in several ways. Aside from having straight, beautiful teeth, orthodontic treatment can also help your oral health. When teeth are correctly aligned, they are less likely to experience decay and damage. This is because your teeth are easier to brush and floss when straight.
Orthodontic Treatment Options
Braces are a popular solution for straightening teeth. Brackets are placed over each tooth and are connected by a wire. The wire applies pressure to the brackets and moves the teeth into a straighter position.
Invisalign straightens teeth invisibly and comfortably. It uses a series of clear aligners that are switched out every few weeks. The aligners are BPA-free and custom-made to fit your teeth.
Invisalign is a convenient, comfortable, and discreet way to straighten your teeth.
Lingual braces are just like traditional metal braces, except they are placed behind your teeth. This makes them invisible to others. Lingual braces are custom-fit, so you will have to wear your braces for 24 months.
Damon Braces are self-ligating braces. This means they use a slide mechanism that doesn’t require a rubber band to hold the archwire. These braces apply constant pressure, regardless of the type of movement needed. Damon Braces are self-ligating braces.

Clear Aligners Therapy
Clear aligners are orthodontic devices that use a series of removable, custom-crafted aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners, called clear aligners, look similar to teeth whitening trays and fit over the teeth. They use gentle pressure to gradually shift teeth into place.
