Orthodontic Treatment Options
Snyder Orthodontics has been creating beautiful smiles in the southwest Virginia community since 1987. Orthodontic treatment is part of modern day dentistry that not only gives you a lifelong smile to be proud of, but a functional bite that creates the optimum environment for wear and tear on the teeth and jaw. Orthodontic treatment allows teeth to function better together and as a result they are easier to keep clean, withstand decay and avoid other dental problems.
Invisalign® is a revolutionary straightening system that utilizes clear aligner trays uniquely designed for your orthodontic requirements. The aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your orthodontist plans out for you.
Did your dentist just recommend orthodontic treatment? Have all your permanent teeth erupted and your smile could use a tweak? Are you disappointed that you have to get braces going into high school? Don’t be! Invisalign Teen® may be the solution for you. With Invisalign Teen®, no one will know you have braces. You can get the smile you’ve always wanted without drawing attention to your teeth!
Traditional braces are the most common type of braces, made of high-quality stainless steel or titanium. Traditional braces can correct crooked and crowded teeth, a misaligned bite, and jaw problems. Traditional braces have come a long way over the years, becoming sleeker, smaller, and more comfortable. And that’s certainly something to smile about!
Learn More About Orthodontics
Orthodontists are dental specialists who diagnose, prevent, and treat dental and facial irregularities. They receive an additional two to three years of specialized education beyond dental school to learn the proper way to align and straighten teeth. Only those with this formal education may call themselves an “Orthodontist”, and only an orthodontist may be board certified by the American Board of Orthodontists (ABO).
