Orthodontics Services Offered at Heninger Dental
Here at Heninger Dental, we are pleased to offer orthodontic services, including:
Using gradual force, clear aligners gently move teeth into alignment without any metal wires or brackets. Clear aligners are made of a very strong plastic material that is fabricated specifically to fit the patient’s teeth. The patient works their way through a series of aligners over the course of their treatment, with each set moving the teeth a little closer to the final, properly aligned smile.
ClearCorrect allows you to show off your smile while your teeth are being straightened. Most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing them. They’re also easily removable, which means that you won’t have to worry about a banned foods list. There are also no wires that trap food or get in the way when you floss.
Orthodontic emergencies are rare, but it’s still important to be prepared for them so that they don’t impact your treatment if they do happen. As a rule, if you experience severe pain or have an appliance problem you can’t take care of on your own, call our office and schedule an appointment. Sometimes an orthodontic emergency is not one you can solve yourself, and that’s where we come in.
For those patients that do not want traditional braces, Dr. Heninger recommends Invisalign. Invisalign is a modern approach to teeth straightening without many of the drawbacks of braces. The clear plastic aligners are nearly invisible, allowing you to confidently show off your smile while straightening your teeth.
Teen Invisalign is basically the same: teenagers can get their teeth straightened without having to go to school as a “brace-face.” But as an added advantage for parents, each Invisalign Teen aligner has a blue indicator that fades over time if your teen is wearing them as often as directed, so you can make sure they’re staying on track with their treatment!
Even if you don’t always wear a mouthguard while playing sports, you’ll want to reconsider while wearing braces. Stray balls and other athletes in contact with your orthodontic equipment can be a painful experience. Worse, excessive contact can damage brackets and cause delays in orthodontic treatment.
The day the braces come off is an amazing day for any orthodontic patient, but don’t get ahead of yourself, because now that you have the smile you’ve always wanted, you have to keep it. That means wearing your retainers as instructed by the dentist. The reason we need retention to keep our teeth in their post-braces position is that it takes time for our teeth, gums, and jaw bones to get used to this new arrangement. So don’t slack off on wearing them!
