There are many reasons why you may want to pursue orthodontic treatment. You may want a healthier, more confident smile, reduce pain, or avoid complex surgeries. Whatever your treatment goals, at Molen Orthodontics, you will find that our innovative treatments, dedication to providing you with the highest possible standard of care, and our expertise will ensure that you’ll achieve the results you are hoping for.
What are the Treatment Options Available?
Your orthodontic treatment begins with an initial consultation, where we meticulously review the formation of your skull, gums, teeth and bite, jaw joints, and palate. But we don’t stop there—we also evaluate your profile and the current level of support provided to your cheeks and lips. From there, we develop a treatment plan that is tailored specifically for you, to give you a smile that is straight, as well as one that enhances your entire face.
Orthodontic treatment options can include:
- Damon braces
- Functional and restorative treatments
- Palate expanders
- Herbst appliances
- Space maintainers
- And more!
Your Unique Orthodontic Plan
Traditional orthodontic treatment often involves the extraction of healthy adult teeth to make room for the movement of the teeth during treatment. Unfortunately, this often means that the front teeth have to be pulled further back into the mouth in order to close all of the spaces, resulting in a flattened profile and, in some cases, a sunken-look to the lips, cheeks, and lower half of the face, which gives the appearance of early aging. Patients that have undergone unnecessary extractions have straighter teeth, but at the cost of their youthful appearance.
At Molen Orthodontics, we center our practice on quality and the ideals of facial aesthetics. We pay the utmost attention to how your new smile will work in concert with the rest of your face, and how it will support your facial structures. By using the most advanced orthodontic techniques—some of which were actually developed by our doctors—we avoid the extraction of healthy adult teeth and give our patients wide, full, straight smiles that help them look their absolute best.
It’s About More than Just Appearances
Aesthetics is a major consideration when seeking orthodontic treatment, but underlying all of it is the need for a healthy, functional bite. Some orthodontic issues are so severe that, if left untreated, they can cause serious damage to the teeth and gums, difficulty eating, speech impediments, and a high level of discomfort.
Our years of expertise and commitment to quality are more than a match for serious orthodontic issues, and we are never happier than when we can give our clients a beautiful, functional, perfectly aligned bite that improves their quality of life.
