If you are a Ballwin, MO resident looking to upgrade your smile by getting rid of crooked teeth, you may be surprised to find out how many options there are. Malocclusion (an uneven bite) is very common among teens and adults, but Dr. Postol has a number of treatments available that can have your smile looking perfectly aligned in as little as six months. St. Louis Dentistry is dedicated to spreading the word about traditional and modern orthodontic options, so read on to find out how you can get your dream smile.
Braces, Six Month Smiles, and Invisalign®
Most of us in Ballwin, MO have some kind of an orthodontic issue. Crowded, crooked, or uneven teeth are the norm; being born with the perfect smile is a rarity. Once upon a time, the only option for shifting teeth into their proper alignment involved traditional braces or headgear during adolescence. Treatment options for adults were slim. However, advances in orthodontic technology have made the process of straightening teeth faster, easier, and less noticeable. Here are the three straightening methods Dr. Postol recommends for adults and mature teens:
1) Traditional Braces- Using a system of metal brackets bonded to teeth and wires that run through them, braces are a tried and true method of orthodontic treatment that can fix pretty much any level of malocclusion.
2) Six Month Smiles- Using specialized, cosmetically-focused treatment plans and tooth-colored wires and brackets, Six Month Smiles accomplish what traditional braces do in a fraction of the time, while allowing Ballwin, MO residents to keep a low profile during their treatment.
3) Invisalign®- Invisalign® treatment corrects crooked teeth with a series of removable, clear plastic aligners. Each tray is custom-made and shipped straight to your door so that you have control over the whole process. Treatment often lasts less than a year and hardly anyone will know that Dr. Postol helped you a smile makeover until you show off your beautiful new smile.
We love to help Ballwin, MO folks achieve the smiles of their dreams, so give St. Louis Dentistry a call today to find out more about orthodontic treatments for adults.
