Improved overall health
Here at Icon Orthodontics, we believe that the essence of good health is helping people feel good about themselves. Orthodontic treatment is more than just straightening teeth. Orthodontics builds self-esteem and self-confidence and will:
- Help prevent or improve periodontal problems
- Help prevent or reduce further bone loss
- Improve the function of your teeth
Braces are instrumental in correcting misaligned teeth and other dental issues that can lead to other common health problems like headaches, jaw pain, digestion issues, and even sleep apnea. They also require a little extra cleaning and care, which means your mouth will get better overall attention and maintenance. Having straight teeth can make this cleaning much less tricky as there will be less space for plaque and bacteria to build up, decreasing your chances of cavities, tooth decay, and even gum disease.
Aesthetics and the confidence of a perfect smile
Your smile depends significantly on your teeth, and a crooked smile or misaligned bite can leave you feeling less confident when you speak or smile. You may notice you shy away from personal conversations and avoid having your photo taken only to give a less-than-thrilled, lips-only grin when you can’t escape. Orthodontic treatment with one of our many braces options can help correct crooked teeth or spaces you’ve been self-conscious about for years.
And, believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving as you become an adult. Teeth that were once straight and aligned in youth can and often do shift later in life. This movement, combined with normal wear from eating and such, can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, difficulty chewing, or abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth.
Personalized Smile Service
We know the process of going to an orthodontist for treatment can be a little overwhelming, so you’ve probably looked into those mail-order aligners you’ve seen advertised lately. Don’t jump on the bandwagon just yet, though, it could cost you more in the long run. Your teeth are quite stubborn, and without knowing what’s actually going on below the gumline, you could spend time and money not getting the correction you were looking for, or worse, you could end up with more problems that could’ve been avoided with a simple examination and proper imaging.
At Icon Orthodontics, we ensure your treatment is as custom and personalized as possible. From the initial examination, where we inspect your mouth and take digital scans and X-rays, to professional supervision every step of the way, you can be sure that your treatment is exactly what your mouth needs with no surprises. Whether you utilize only clear aligners like Invisalign, bracket and wire Damon braces, or a combination of our options, your confident smile is worth the visit.
Treatment Options for your needs
Think you’ll have to change up your lifestyle to get the smile of your dreams? Think again. Limited treatment options are a thing of the past, and our modern techniques and treatments mean you can continue being you while getting the most comfortable and effective smile transformation at the same time. Check out our treatment options!
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Using a high-tech digital scanner, your clear aligner system is made of clear, lightweight plastic that is 3D printed to provide a customized fit over your teeth and straighten your smile according to the treatment plan your orthodontist created. They are removable and much more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces, making brushing, flossing, and eating much more manageable. You’ll notice a change in just a few short months.
Damon Clear Braces
Clear braces using Damon self-ligating clear brackets work the same way as traditional metal braces but are smaller, more efficient, and virtually invisible. These self-ligating braces use smaller brackets with a special clip that allows continuous gentle pressure on your teeth to move them gently, with greater control and less force than traditional braces.
Damon Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most widely used type of fixed orthodontic appliance. Though past incarnations have been bulky, awkward, and painful, today’s metal braces are smaller, lighter, and more comfortable. Our advanced Damon metal braces are made for efficient tooth movement and optimal patient comfort utilizing self-ligating brackets instead of elastic ties to secure the brackets to the wire.
InBrace Hidden Braces
InBrace’s Smartwire system is personalized to your mouth and designed to gently move your teeth according to the treatment plan our doctors create just for you. With InBrace from Icon Orthodontics, you won’t have to deal with painful monthly tightenings, managing your tray wear time, or bulky, visible wires– this option places the appliances on the back of your teeth, and the Smartwire ensures efficiency.
