Orthodontics

At North River Dental our practice offers orthodontics treatment to our patients. We recommend our patients consider orthodontics if their teeth are not fitting together correctly. Ill fitting teeth can create hard to reach spaces allowing bacteria to cluster and eventually lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease. With orthodontics are goal is to gently move the teeth into their correct position to allow for proper care and cleaning.

During your consultation well will create your individualized treatment plan utilizing numerous diagnostic techniques including; x-rays, molds, and photographs of your bite and arch. All our orthodontic appliances will gently shift the teeth overtime using a gentle pressure. Your orthodontic appliance, whether fixed or removable, will be determined based on the severity of your dental complication.

Our fixed appliance options include braces, which are one of the most common orthodontic option and consist of brackets and wires. Over the course of time the wires are slowly tightened shifting the teeth into their proper position. Removable appliances will need to be removed before brushing, flossing, and eating; and they include retainers and aligners. Once your orthodontic treatment is finished you will be fitted for a retainer to help prevent your teeth from shifting. Aligners allow you to move your teeth over time using trays in a specific sequence. Invisalign is one of the most popular options for aligners available on the market today.
