Orthodontics offers more than a way to aesthetically enhance your smile. From a functional perspective, straightening teeth with braces allows patients to chew and bite more easily, preventing uneven wear or grinding on misaligned teeth. By correcting bite pattern, individuals can also address potential jaw misalignment, allowing them to avoid TMJ problems in the future. In regards to health benefits, orthodontics makes it easier for patients to brush and floss their teeth, allowing them to improve and maintain their oral hygiene at home.
At our Jacksonville, TX dental office we create a personalized orthodontic treatment plan that starts with understanding your realignment needs. By using state-of-the-art dental equipment, Dr. Checketts is able to determine which orthodontic treatment best suits your immediate and long-term needs. At Brookview Family Dental, we offer traditional orthodontics and ClearCorrect.
Ideal for any patients with anterior crowding, gaps between the teeth, or crossbite, traditional orthodontics offer the reliability of a tried-and-true treatment option. With metal braces, brackets and wires are used to move the teeth into the correct position. Over the course of care, patients visit our practice every four to six weeks for check-ups and to have their braces tightened. After treatment, we provide patients with a clear retainer which is worn to keep teeth in their new position.
Traditional orthodontics are a reliable means of improving the dentition without too much upkeep, beyond thorough daily cleaning. Traditional orthodontics are typically used for younger patients who may not be able to maintain the stringent care needed for removable braces.
Unlike metal braces, ClearCorrect uses clear aligning trays to move teeth into the correct position. Patients who choose this alternative are individuals with slight rotations, those experiencing alignment relapse from prior orthodontic treatment, and patients with minor crowding or gaps.
During this treatment, digital X-rays and cameras are used to take in-depth images of your smile. These images and impressions are then sent to the ClearCorrect lab, where the removable aligning trays are made. Over the course of treatment, patients wear their trays for two to three weeks, visiting our Jacksonville dentist every six weeks or so for more trays. During these visits, we evaluate treatment progression and make adjustments as needed to ensure the best results.
The success of ClearCorrect is heavily driven by patient cooperation and compliance with their treatment plan. This treatment option is typically recommended for adults who can maintain their treatment regimen.
