Orthodontic Evaluations Williamsburg

During orthodontic evaluations with our Williamsburg pediatric orthodontist here at Rosenberg Orthodontics, our pediatric patients and their parents are sometimes surprised when we recommend that teeth be removed prior to beginning an orthodontic treatment plan. For pediatric patients, sometimes primary teeth do not fall out around the right time, and so they can inhibit proper development and cause problems that require orthodontic treatment. Removing primary teeth usually does not cause any concern. But in some cases, adult teeth may need to be removed—a recommendation which patients and parents tend to be more wary of. Often, our Williamsburg pediatric orthodontist will recommend that a permanent tooth be removed because crowding is occurring.

Tooth Extractions Williamsburg

Tooth Extractions Williamsburg

For some patients, the jaw is simply too small to accommodate all of the teeth properly, and so they begin to crowd and overlap one another. Crooked and crowded teeth are not only less aesthetically pleasing, but they can also be more difficult to clean and so increase your child’s risk of developing common dental issues like decay and periodontal disease. If this is the case, our Williamsburg pediatric orthodontist will recommend removing teeth in order to make room for them to straighten out properly with the use of orthodontic treatment, which may include braces, retainers, and more. At Rosenberg Orthodontics, we are here to provide the most effective care, and so we will make suggestions that we feel work best for your child and her individual needs. All of the treatment plans created for our patients are created on an individual basis, and tooth extractions are sometimes a part of these customized treatment plants in order to create the perfect smile for your child.

Williamsburg Invisalign Dentist

Williamsburg Invisalign Dentist

Our Williamsburg Invisalign dentist at Rosenberg Orthodontics, and our certified staff, will help you understand the process of using Invisalign and help you decide if it’s the right treatment for you. Invisalign straightens your teeth without traditional wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances. Since it is practically undetectable, hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth. Our Williamsburg Invisalign provider will use the Invisalign treatment plan along with 3-D computer software to help make custom sets of plastic aligners that move teeth in little increments. Each aligner, as few as 12 or as many as 48, is carefully calibrated and made to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss.

Our Williamsburg Invisalign provider will begin by taking dental impressions, x-rays and photographs of your teeth and sends them to Align Technology. The impressions are put through a CT scan from which a computer creates a three-dimensional model. Custom software then simulates the movement of the teeth in stages. The simulation is reviewed online and once approved a plastic resin aligner is made for each stage of treatment and shipped to our trusted Williamsburg Invisalign provider at Rosenberg Orthodontics. The normal treatment time is about one year, depending on the complexity of the treatment and, once complete, retainers composed of a similar plastic material are usually necessary and worn usually at night. With our expert staff focused on your satisfaction and comfort, give Invisalign some serious consideration to help give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

The most obvious advantage of treatment from our Williamsburg Invisalign dentist is cosmetic, which makes the method especially popular with adults who want to straighten their teeth without the usual discomfort and look of traditional metal braces. With metal braces, 50% of patients develop tooth decay because, unlike Invisalign, they cannot be removed for eating and cleaning and they prevent accurate x-rays from being taken. Computerized treatment planning is a necessary part of the Invisalign procedure as this allows you to review the projected smile design, learn how long the treatment is likely to take, compare different plans, and make a more educated decision as to whether Invisalign is right for you or your child.
