Straighten Up, Look Sharp
Usually when people look in the mirror and imagine the smile of their dreams, two words come to mind: white and straight. Misaligned, crooked, and overlapping teeth can be unsightly and even unhealthy. The orthodontics program at Greater Long Island Dental offers both traditional and modern systems to straighten your smile, improve your oral health, and boost your confidence along the way. To learn more about traditional braces or Invisalign®, contact our orthodontics experts today.
One of the most popular dental treatments available today, Invisalign® invisible braces are designed to gently and gradually straighten your teeth without the metallic appearance of traditional braces. Using advanced diagnostic tools, digital X-rays, and photographs, our dentists will create your customized treatment plan. Impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to the Invisalign® lab where your own custom-fit, clear aligners will be made. Your doctor will instruct you to wear each aligner for approximately two weeks before switching it out for the aligner associated with the next phase of movement. The length of your treatment will depend on your own individual needs, but as you cycle through each aligning tray, your teeth will become visibly straighter. One of the cornerstones of the Greater Long Island Dental philosophy is dental care for life; once your Invisalign® treatment is complete, we will continue to follow up with your progress, fine-tuning and perfecting your smile. We provide continuing orthodontic care for life.
It used to be that patients were turned off by the idea of traditional braces. With garish metal brackets and wires, discomfort, and regular repair, we can't blame them! Luckily, traditional orthodontics are not what they used to be. Our team of experts has perfected the orthodontic processes to optimize your experience, your comfort, and the overall results. Patients who receive braces today can enjoy:
- Faster turnaround time
- Greater comfort
- Easy care instructions
- More durable materials
Our certified orthodontist and Dr. James Woltmann's orthodontic experience allow our patients to receive all their treatment in a single office. Eliminating the runaround between multiple offices and specialists allows you to build your trust in us, and gives us time to get to know you personally and understand your oral health at the deepest level possible.
Improving Your Oral Health
Harmful, disease- and decay-causing bacteria can become trapped between overlapping teeth. Cleaning between these teeth can be difficult, despite a diligent brushing and flossing routine. If the bacteria is not properly removed and gum disease or decay are the result, you may be facing further damage, and even tooth loss. Shifting your smile into a straighter line will make it easier to brush the entire surface of your teeth, as well as floss between them. Even professional cleanings can be more successful when the hygienist can reach these otherwise covered areas.
If your crooked teeth are holding you back from a beautiful smile, self-confidence, or optimal health, then it's time to ask Greater Long Island Dental for help. Orthodontics has become a convenient, effective, and painless way to straighten your smile line, and our dentists are experts in the field. Contact our Long Island practice today to schedule a consultation for Invisalign® or traditional braces.
