Metal braces have had a bad reputation for being awkward and obvious. However, because of modern orthodontics, you’ll now enjoy the benefit of smaller, less conspicuous, and more comfortable versions than you may have seen in the past. Our metal braces in Matthews, near Weddington and Stallings, NC, offer sleeker brackets and lighter wires to improve the appearance and feel of these braces. Hence, you will feel less irritation and discomfort in your mouth.
Traditional metal braces also come with a fun new twist without any extra cost – you can customize them with pops of color! You have the opportunity to show your personality by choosing from a wide variety of colors for the elastics that fit around your brackets.
Ceramic braces in Matthews, near Weddington and Stallings, NC, are also called clear braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces. They work just like metal braces. Our ceramic braces are designed to make you feel comfortable, so they’re smaller and less noticeable than typical traditional braces. They look natural because of their polycrystalline ceramic material, which resembles natural teeth.
Invisalign in Matthews, near Stallings and Weddington, NC, is much more comfortable than traditional metal braces and can give you stunning results. The Invisalign system is made of custom-designed, clear, lightweight plastic aligners that fit over your teeth and are designed to straighten your smile. They’re also removable, so it’s easier to eat, drink, brush, and floss!
As a child grows, so does their smile. Children ages 6 to 10 can start orthodontic treatment, even with baby teeth! This is known as Phase 1 treatment. During this stage, orthodontists can catch orthodontic issues early on and address the developing problem. We offer Invisalign First in Matthews, near Weddington and Stallings, NC, to help treat orthodontic problems in our youngest patients.
Invisalign First’s clear aligners are designed to provide a positive experience with proven results while addressing the unique needs of your growing child.
Retainers in Matthews, near Weddington and Stallings, NC, are prescribed by orthodontists to keep your teeth from moving after your orthodontic treatment. There are many reasons teeth may move following orthodontic treatment because the bone around your teeth is continually changing (breaking down and rebuilding). Our clear and metal retainers are the best tool to keep teeth stabilized and your smile as beautiful as ever!
Orthognathic surgery in Matthews, near Weddington and Stallings, NC, is a treatment used by our orthodontists to correct severe jaw abnormalities. These abnormalities are determined after a careful exam where we review the patient’s X-rays and models. After diagnosis, the orthodontist will initially level and align the teeth in the jawbone, and then, in conjunction with an oral surgeon, they will position the jaws into a more normal position to allow the bite to come together ideally. This procedure gives the patient an improved ability to chew, speak, and breathe, while also significantly improving their facial aesthetics.
