Orthodontics can help straighten your teeth and improve the health of your smile. Visit Cambridge Dental Group in Dearborn Heights today, and our on-site Orthodontist will help you achieve a confident smile through high-quality orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and correcting misaligned teeth and jaws. A poorly aligned bite creates room for food particles to get lodged in hard-to-reach places, making it difficult to clean when brushing and flossing. This can cause additional wear on your teeth and jaws, leading to further painful and expensive oral health conditions.
Orthodontic treatment uses a range of appliances to correct these problems to provide improved oral health, proper dental function, and a more aesthetically-pleasing look. At Cambridge Dental Group in Dearborn Heights, we offer comprehensive orthodontic treatment for patients of all ages. Depending on your needs, we may recommend traditional braces, ceramic braces, Invisalign, ClearCorrect, or our own in-house clear aligners. We also offer retainers.
Traditional braces are the most common appliances used in orthodontic treatment. We use them to correct issues such as crooked teeth, crowded teeth and misaligned jaws. Braces are made up of metal brackets, wires and bands that are cemented to the surfaces of your teeth. By anchoring the wire to the brackets, we can gradually tighten the wire to guide your teeth into the desired position.
Ceramic braces function the same way as traditional braces. These braces are made with clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires. This makes them more discreet and less visible than traditional braces.
Much like Invisalign, ClearCorrect is a type of invisible aligner that guides your teeth into a healthier alignment. ClearCorrect comes in three different options, depending on your needs: Limited 6 (where you receive a set of six aligners), Limited 12 (where you receive 12 aligners) and Unlimited (where we prescribe as many aligners as needed to correct your bite).
This is a type of clear aligner that is offered exclusively by our team at Cambridge Dental Group. In-house clear aligners are more affordable than name brand aligners without compromising on the benefits.
A retainer is an orthodontic appliance used to keep the teeth in the corrected alignment and keep them from shifting back to their previous position. Depending on your age and dental needs, our dentist may recommend wearing your retainer for one year or more.
Our team will conduct a thorough exam and recommend the orthodontic treatment that’s right for you. Generally, you may require orthodontics treatment if you suffer from any of these conditions:
