Smile With Confidence With Our Orthodontic Treatment

At Synergy Dental, we realize there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to orthodontic care. Different patients require different types of orthodontics. Here, you can choose from several orthodontic therapies, depending on your needs and goals. Options include:

  • Traditional Braces – Braces have been around for a long time because they are useful in a number of situations and can be used on the most crooked of teeth to realign them.
  • Preventive Orthodontics – This type of orthodontics is also known as orthotropics. It involves the use of an appliance to help children’s jaws and facial bones develop properly and prevent problems with their airway.
  • Invisalign – You can straighten your teeth in a matter of months, not years, with soft and comfortable plastic teeth aligners. Plus, they’re are transparent and practically invisible to others.
  • Six Month Smiles – This innovative treatment focuses on straightening only the teeth that show when you smile. As a result, treatment is quick, usually around six months.

Having a straight smile can do more than just boost your confidence. Straight rows of teeth are easier to keep clean with regular brushing and flossing. There are fewer nooks and crannies for food to become trapped in and allow bacteria to flourish. This means you’ll reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease. In addition, the position of your teeth – along with tongue function, breathing habits, and more – can affect your airway health. As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Porter understands this. He can use orthodontics and/or other treatments like laser therapy, myofunctional therapy, and orthotropics to improve airway health.

Common Questions About Orthodontics

How effective are orthodontics?

Our orthodontic options are very effective for correcting a wide variety of orthodontic issues. We offer Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, either of which can straighten your teeth faster than traditional braces. Both methods will give you a straight and beautiful smile in months rather than two years or longer like braces take. We also offer traditional braces, for smiles that require that approach, and preventive orthodontics to help your child avoid the need for braces later on in life.

How much does orthodontics cost?

Each patient who comes to us for orthodontics is different. There are no two sets of teeth exactly alike. Until we’ve had a chance to examine your mouth and take X-rays, there is no way to give you a price on your orthodontic treatment. Once we have more information, we can give you an accurate estimate for your orthodontics.

Are orthodontics worth it?

Our patients think so! We’ve treated many patients who have been unhappy with their smiles for years because of gaps, crooked teeth, and other orthodontic issues. Orthodontic treatment not only improves the appearance of your smile, it often improves its function too by moving teeth into proper alignment. Misaligned teeth can contribute to health problems such as TMJ disorders.
