Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontics?

When you think of visiting a health care professional about your teeth, you probably think about going to the dentist. While a dentist certainly helps you keep your teeth clean and healthy, only an orthodontist has specific training and experience in repositioning teeth.

When you or your child is living with a smile issue because teeth aren’t in the proper position, the team at Rad Orthodontics delivers the specialized care you need.

What kind of smile issues can orthodontics correct?

The team at Rad Orthodontics is experienced in correcting:

Crowded teeth

When there’s not enough space along the arch of your mouth or when teeth aren’t properly distributed along the arch, it can lead to crowded teeth. This pushes teeth out of alignment and creates hard-to-clean areas between overlapping teeth. Fortunately, the Rad Orthodontics team has a number of treatments to reposition and straighten teeth. 

Open bite

If the front teeth don’t touch when the jaw is closed, it’s called an open bite. Rad Orthodontics corrects this issue, giving you a beautiful smile and allowing you to bite normally. 

Overbite

When the top arch of teeth extends too far in front of the lower arch of teeth, it’s called an overbite. At Rad Orthodontics, this is an easily treatable issue. 

Underbite

People have an underbite when the bottom arch of teeth is positioned in front of the upper arch of teeth when the jaw is shut. This can cause your teeth to wear improperly and can even cause jaw soreness. The team at Rad Orthodontics offers a variety of orthodontic treatments to correct this issue.

If you have one of these teeth-positioning issues, don’t wait to talk to the Rad Orthodontics team about your treatment options.

How can orthodontics fix my smile?

Rad Orthodontics offers the latest treatments available today to help you get your dream smile faster. Their self-ligating braces, for example, move your teeth more quickly and shorten your appointment times. 

Or, if you’d prefer to avoid visible braces, they offer Incognito™ hidden braces, which attach to the insides of your teeth, or Invisalign®, which uses clear plastic aligners to guide your teeth to the right position. 

On top of all of this, Rad Orthodontics offers AcceleDent® Aura and Propel® treatments, which speed up tooth movement so you can get your dream smile faster.
