Progressive methods. Caring approach.
Your young ones deserve healthy, stunning, confident smiles that will last long. Here at Inspire Dental & Orthodontics, we recommend that children have their first dental check-up at age 1 and orthodontic evaluation by age 7. Early detection of dental problems and early intervention allows us to prevent early childhood caries, guide jaw bone growth, correct harmful oral functional habits like tongue thrusting and thumbsucking, correct bite problems, and guide proper eruption of permanent teeth.
Having a crooked smile is one of the most cited reasons for teenagers’ dissatisfaction with their smiles. During your teenager’s oral health evaluation, we will thoroughly examine teeth, gums, and jaw bones to determine whether treatment is needed.
Dental and orthodontic evaluations in adults are vital to detect tooth decay, gum disease, and bite problems. A thorough examination of teeth, x-rays, digital scans, and photographs will help create a custom treatment plan for every adult patient. This is also the best time to educate our patients on caring for their teeth and gums.
Metal braces are the most common orthodontic treatment that has been around for over 100 years. Here at Inspire Dental & Orthodontics, with the advancement in orthodontic technologies, we use smaller metal brackets that are more efficient, more comfortable, and less noticeable. Metal braces are also perfectly suited to treat complex cases and for children who want to show their personalities through fun-colored elastics throughout their treatment.
Invisalign is one of the most popular treatment options to straighten teeth discreetly. You will wear a series of custom-made, computer-generated clear aligners to gradually move teeth to their ideal positions. It is metal-free; thus, it is more comfortable and less noticeable than metal braces. While on treatment, you don’t need to change your lifestyle, eating habits, playing sports, or even your oral hygiene care routine at home. Dr. Kaveh Baharvand is a Platinum Invisalign Provider, which means he has completed hundreds of Invisalign cases in a year and is particularly experienced regarding clear aligners.
Don’t put your investment to waste – wear your retainers. After orthodontic treatments, you will have to wear your retainers to help keep your teeth in their new positions while your jaw bone grows to secure them for a lifetime of healthy, stunning smiles! Your dentist will determine what type of retainer best fits you and how long you will have to wear retainers.
