Often considered a specialty area of dentistry, orthodontics is becoming more and more widespread in the practices of general and family dentists. As a family dentistry ourselves, we want to provide dental and orthodontic solutions for your whole family all in one place.
What Do We Mean by Orthodontics?
Treatments such as braces are used to straighten teeth, resolve bite problems, and improve overall health. If left to their own devices, these issues could cause painful problems in the future such as tooth loss and TMD.
Because your health is our greatest concern, McCullough Dental offers two main types of orthodontics:
SURESMILE CLEAR ALIGNERS
The SureSmile® system is an innovative approach to orthodontics. The treatment uses clear aligners that slide comfortably over your teeth, making small adjustments at a time. After a few weeks, you’ll switch to new aligners that will move your teeth slightly closer to where we want them to end up.
If you choose SureSmile aligners, you can expect comfort, convenience, and discretion during your orthodontic treatment.
Benefits of SureSmile clear aligners:
- Invisible orthodontic treatment means no more metal mouth!
- Removable aligners make sports and activities safer and more fun.
- Eating and keeping your appliance clean is much easier with removable aligners.
Six Month Smiles
This brand of braces uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that work together to move your teeth faster than most other orthodontic methods. Your treatment will be discreet, and like the name suggests, Six Month Smiles can get you your perfect smile in as little as six months!
If you need straight teeth fast, Six Month Smiles is the choice for you.
Benefits of Six Month Smiles:
- Faster treatment time!
- Clear, discreet braces.
- Comfortable brackets that you won’t lose track of.
Every time I go there, every one makes you feel so welcome and comfortable. From the front desk, the hygienist, the assistants, to the Doctor… what a Family! I love them all!
