At Smile Rite Dental we know that having straight teeth is important to our patients. That’s why we strive to provide the latest in technological innovations and a variety of options so that you can find the right solution for you or your child.
Myobrace and Healthy Start
At Smile Rite Dental we believe that early intervention can help children develop correct oral health habits which will benefit them throughout their lives. New advances in dental technology, such as Myobrace and Healthy Start, help give children proper oral function and can ensure correct nasal breathing.
In the past, crooked teeth were simply treated with braces. But braces do not address the underlying causes of crooked teeth. We use treatments like Myobrace and Healthy Start to prevent the need for braces but also because they treat the issues that lead to crooked teeth and blocked airways.
How Does It Work?
The Myobrace and Healthy Start treatments employ removable oral retainers that are usually worn one to two hours a day and during the night. The trainers are made to fit your child’s needs and work in conjunction with exercises that we teach your child to improve their mouth breathing habits. Using Myobrace or Healthy Start can make it less likely your child will need braces or other orthodontia.
Fastbraces were originally developed here in Texas and are quickly becoming a very popular way to straighten your teeth. These braces are designed to correct your bite and/or straighten your teeth in as little as three months. Most people do not wear them for more than a year.
Unlike traditional braces, Fastbraces work to move both the top of the tooth and the root of the tooth at the same time, which means that it can take half the time to move your teeth.
If you simply want to straighten a portion of your teeth, the front few, or what some call the ‘social six’, you may want to opt for Cfast braces. Cfast braces are for patients whose front teeth need alignment. The average amount of time in these braces is around five months and they can be optimal for our patients who want their teeth straightened quickly. They also offer clear brackets and tooth-colored wires.
If you want to straighten your teeth, but don’t want to use traditional braces to do it, Invisalign gives you the perfect option. Invisalign employs clear aligners to reposition your teeth. Since the aligners are virtually invisible, you can get your teeth straightened without feeling the embarrassment or stigma that sometimes comes with braces.
How it Works
Each of the aligners will be designed and custom-crafted specifically for you after we make special molds of your teeth using 3-D imaging. Then, the aligners will be placed carefully on your teeth. Finally, we’ll teach you how to clean and care for these aligners. Most of our patients see effective results after only one year.
