Problems such as misaligned teeth, crooked or crowded teeth, or problems with your bite are often hereditary, but can be exacerbated by habits like thumb sucking. Atlantic Dental provides many orthodontic treatments and options, like orthodontic braces and Invisalign, to meet the unique needs of each patient in Toms River, NJ, Manchester, NJ, and the surrounding areas.
There are three types of orthodontic braces; conventional, metal or plastic brackets, and lingual. The ideal age for braces is between seven and fourteen years, since the facial structure is developing. Older teens and adults may also benefit from braces, although the treatment may be more complex, compared to younger patients.
Invisalign is a method of straightening teeth without the use of conventional braces. Clinical research has shown that this method can be very effective for teens and adults. The system is a series of removable aligners that are designed to fit over the teeth. You will wear the aligners for two weeks, removing them only for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene. You replace the aligner every two weeks with the next in the series and visit the dentist every six weeks to check your progress.
