You want a phenomenal smile. You have done your part. You take excellent care of your teeth in order to keep them healthy and pearly white. There is only one problem. They aren’t straight. You might have a problem with crowding or your bite may not be in proper alignment. Regardless of why your teeth are not in the proper position, you can’t change it on your own. You need help from an orthodontist who has the skills and resources to get results. Visit Dr. Bowman, DMD to explore your options for orthodontic treatment and open the door to an unforgettable smile.
Begin with Your Initial Evaluation
The first step in creating an orthodontic treatment plan is to have your consultation visit with Dr. Bowman. He will talk with you about your concerns for your teeth and perform a physical examination. You can also expect medical imagery to be used in order to get a more in-depth picture of the structure of your mouth. Once our orthodontist identifies the problem with your teeth, it will be possible to plan your treatment.
Find Out What Treatment Options are Available for You
Orthodontic work is never a one-size-fits-all approach. Our orthodontist needs to find a way to gently shift your teeth into the proper position in order to give you properly aligned teeth. Dr. Bowman may recommend traditional metal brackets and wires. If you want your braces to be discreet, you may be able to wear them behind your teeth or choose ceramic brackets that match the color of your teeth. You may be a candidate for clear aligners that slide over your teeth. Only Dr. Bowman will be able to determine what is right for you.
Be Patient on the Journey
Great things take time, and a beautiful smile is no exception. Once you begin orthodontic treatment with Dr. Bowman, be prepared to wait. It could take two years or more to slowly move your teeth into position. You will come in for regular visits to check your progress. During that time, be sure to continue to take good care of your teeth so that they will continue to be healthy and strong. When your braces come off, you will be able to enjoy a dazzling smile. This will also make it easier to keep your teeth clean and avoid problems that can be caused by improperly aligned teeth.
