Do you have crooked or misaligned teeth? Don’t settle for a smile that you don’t feel confident showing off in pictures and videos and when conversing with family, friends, and colleagues. At Pleasant Plains Dental, we offer a variety of orthodontic options, including Six Month Smiles® , that can enhance your smile and boost your oral health.

Six Month Smiles

If you are at least 16 years old with mild to moderate alignment issues, you may qualify for Six Month Smiles. This accelerated orthodontic option utilizes either invisible aligners or an advanced clear bracket and wire system to straighten teeth in as little as six months.

Invisalign® Clear Aligner Therapy

Invisalign offers a comfortable and discreet teeth straightening process. Clear aligner therapy involves progressing through a series of transparent aligners made of smooth plastic. Each set of aligners is worn for one to two weeks before being swapped out for the next set in the series. The process gradually moves teeth into their desired positions in an average of 12-18 months. The aligners must be worn at least 20-22 hours a day and are removed when eating and drinking anything other than water and when cleaning the teeth.

Traditional Metal Braces & Lingual Braces

Traditional metal braces are a tried-and-true orthodontic treatment for mild to severe misalignment. Braces can handle even the most complex alignment issues to allow nearly any patient to achieve a straighter, healthier smile.

Lingual braces are similar to metal braces and can handle many alignment issues. The main difference is that lingual braces are placed on the back of teeth instead of the front to make the braces less visible during the straightening process.
