Little Silver cosmetic dentist Bruce Bilow most commonly uses small clear brackets accompanied by tooth colored memory wires and elastics to straighten teeth to their most beautiful position . This orthodontic technique uses low gentle forces. For minor crowding or spaces the braces only need be worn for 6 to 12 weeks, for moderate crowding or spacing the treatment usuallly takes 4 to 6 months. Even some of the most challenging cases can be completed in 6 to 9 months with this technique. For the most discriminating patients, small metal brackets can be used behind the teeth where no one but your dentist can see them .
Adult highspeed braces are designed to improve the look of your front smiling teeth and are not meant to replace traditional two year metal braces. Ohio cosmetic dentist Dr. Rick DePaul says that his "Powerprox Six Month Braces TM technique is analgous to porcelain laminate veneers, bonding, and other cosmetic dentistry procedures . Instead of preparing the teeth and bonding porcelain veneers to them, the teeth are moved orthodontically to their most beautiful position. This usually solves the chief complaint of the patient and gives the desired result- a great smile."
The procedure is very popular among adults because it allows for a vastly improved smile in a relatively short period of time. Patients with concerns about crowded or spaced teeth can have a great smile in a short few weeks or several months depending on the severity of the problem.
For severe bite problems with patients that agree to wear the braces for a longer period of time (12 to 18 months), Dr. Bilow will utilize the tipedge differential straight arch technique taught to him by Arizona orthodontist Harry Green. The tipedge bracket works best with low forces ( is gentle) and allows for fast correction of many complicated malocclusions.
Little Silver dentist Bruce Bilow states that in my twenty two years of experience as a general cosmetic dentist I have found that "most adults want short term orthodontics because they are not interested in keeping the braces on for one to two years. Many of our adult orthodontic patients have commented how comfortable they feel in our office and that they appreciate the amenities and the semi-private rooms ."
At your first visit to Dr. Bilow's convenient White Road office in the Little Silver Commons, he will personally discuss the chief concerns of your smile and help you decide if the braces will work for you. Many, many patients are good candidates for short term orthodontics .Of course, you must have healthy gums and teeth to start .
If it has been a while since you last visited a dentist you may surprised at your next visit. Todays modern dental office may be utilizing great new technologies such as digital x-rays(less radiation to patients), dental cat scans( three dimensional digital x-rays that immensely help your doctor with orthodontic, endodontic, oral surgical and implant treatments), lasers for diagnosing and treatment (early detection of tooth decay and treatment can lead to longer lasting more comfortable restorations)
According to Bruce Bilow the best part of short term orthodontics " is sharing the excitement patients have as they see their teeth move to that most beautiful position." When the braces come off , patients are so jazzed up by their new smile. Bruce Bilow says "It rocks to be a cosmetic dentist and to help patients get what they ultimatley want- a great smile.!"
