While the field of orthodontics has expanded in recent years, traditional braces remain the most common type of orthodontic treatment available. When it comes to correcting crooked teeth and uneven bites, braces are still the most reliable option for creating the straighter, healthier smile that you want. Metal and ceramic braces rely on brackets and wires that exert continuous pressure on the teeth to slowly move them up, down, or to the side towards a better position.
When it comes to orthodontic emergencies, we can handle them with ease and care. Although orthodontic emergencies may not happen often, being prepared is the greatest peace of mind. Fortunately, Buckhead Orthodontics is your partner during stressful emergencies.
EvoAligners are Dr. Everson’s own customizable aligner system. It can be used for a range of different treatment options from minor tooth movements to more advanced in difficult cases. Using intraoral scanners, with our farm of 3D printers, we can quickly set up treatments and make advanced clear aligners for quicker turnaround times with more customization, all at an affordable cost. Come see if EvoAligners are a perfect fit for you!
For mild to moderate orthodontic problems, Invisalign is also a great option. Invisalign is great for correcting a wide range of orthodontic issues and can now be used with all ages. Not all Invisalign is created equal. At Buckhead Orthodontics, we are able to digitally scan your teeth and treatment plan your case for the most accurate aligner fit. With our Itero intraoral scanner we can perform simulations chairside to help you understand how your teeth will move for your perfect smile! There can be errors with the old way of taking impressions which would slow treatment down. Now we can scan and even see if your teeth are tracking as digitally planned anytime during treatment. Invisalign aligners can be taken out while eating and brushing, which makes keeping your teeth clean much easier.
Phase 1 Pediatric
We can identify signs that your child might need orthodontic treatment (such as front teeth that are crowded together or having trouble chewing their food) as early as age 7, which is why we recommend scheduling their first orthodontic consultation around this time. While they may not need braces at this point, we can still use Phase 1 orthodontics to treat specific developmental issues. Beginning orthodontic treatment now could reduce the need for more complex treatments later.
More than 1.5 million adults over the age of 21 receive orthodontic care from a certified orthodontist every year. No matter how long you’ve lived with crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, you could still benefit from braces or clear aligners. Orthodontic treatment may last a little longer for adults than children since more pressure is required to move teeth in a fully formed jawbone, but the results will still be dazzling.
Once we have determined that you no longer need braces or clear aligners, we will give you a retainer. This simple oral appliance helps ensure that your teeth do not relapse after a successful treatment. It can take months to straighten a smile, but without a retainer, it will take considerably less time for your teeth to return to their original positions. Other oral appliances might be used depending on what your teeth and jaws need.
Dentofacial orthopedics is concerned with facial growth and development. If your child has a problem with their bite because of an improperly developed jaw, dentofacial orthopedics can be used to correct the problem and prevent the variety of health issues that are associated with a crossbite, overbite, or underbite. This type of treatment might involve the use of headgear or expanders; ideally, we can use these appliances to correct existing jaw problems before all the permanent teeth grow in.
If you’re looking to speed up the timetable for your orthodontic treatment, you may want to ask about a revolutionary orthodontic device known as PROPEL. We can use PROPEL to make tiny perforations in the bone tissue around your teeth. This stimulates the cells in the area and makes the bone more receptive to any changes. Studies have shown that PROPEL can significantly reduce the amount of time you need to wear braces and other orthodontic appliances.
