Do you or your child suffer from crooked, misaligned teeth? Looking for a way to perfect your smile? With orthodontic treatment from Village Family Dentist in Granville, Ohio near Newark, you can! For patients with teeth spacing or alignment issues, braces can be the perfect solution for correcting the appearance and functionality of your smile. Our braces can also correct problems such as overbites, underbites, and other conditions which may impact patient dental health.
Traditional braces have been used to correct smiles for decades, and are made of wires, brackets, and elastics. Over time, braces must be adjusted and tightened to shift teeth into a more appealing position. Depending on the specific circumstances, braces may be adjusted approximately every eight to ten weeks. You can even customize the color of your braces, which is exciting for children and teens to show off their personal style.
For our Granville and Newark patients that prefer a less noticeable orthodontic treatment option, we are proud to offer Invisalign for both Adults and Teens. This treatment involves custom, thermoplastic aligners which must be replaced over time. As you change aligners, teeth are gradually shifted to a more appealing position. Invisalign aligners may also be removed for eating, drinking, and cleaning, which some patients prefer.
At our Granville dental office, we recommend that children receive an orthodontic evaluation by the age of eight. This will allow us to evaluate teeth and overall oral health to determine if orthodontic treatment could be used to improve the appearance and functionality of their smile. Adults with spacing and alignment issues may benefit from orthodontic treatment as well; it can make teeth easier to brush and floss, avoiding decay and cavities.
