Modern technology continues to positively shape the orthodontic experience of today. The new techniques and appliances we use are more comfortable, require fewer office visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several attractive options.
Your options in our office would include metal brackets which today are lighter and smaller than ever before. Clear (ceramic) brackets are an aesthetic option and are almost unnoticeable. We use self-ligating brackets (SmartClip or Damon) which provide the distinct advantage of making visits for archwire changes much quicker. These brackets are also easier to keep clean than traditional ligated brackets. Our space-age low force/high comfort wires provide gentler tooth movement.
For many types of orthodontic problems, Invisalign (a series of clear aligners) would be ideal. Another important feature of our state-of-the-art office is our computerized digital imaging which assures that patients receive the lowest possible x-ray exposure.
During the initial complimentary examination Dr. Statler will determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs.
Successful orthodontics today is not just straight teeth, but a delicate balance between the upper and lower teeth, the jaw and jaw joints, all dental structures and importantly affects the facial appearance. All these factors are carefully considered by Dr. Statler to ensure that you have a smile that will be a source of pride and self-esteem for a lifetime!
