Correct Poor Bite with Braces by our Orthodontist

At City Place Dental, we make it easy to treat all aspects of your smile by providing a wide range of services in-office, including orthodontics. With a visiting orthodontist treating patients at our office on a weekly basis, we can offer the expertise that children & adult patients need to achieve straighter & healthier smiles.

Pre-Orthodontic Care

Children whose baby teeth are growing, developing & making room for adult teeth can display early signs of the need for orthodontic care in adolescence. Phase one or pre-orthodontics are designed to lessen the impact these issues may have on young smiles, to shorten treatment plans & ensure that recommended care is as efficient as possible.

Our Silver Spring orthodontist provides phase one orthodontic treatment for children that can include anything from space maintainers to avoid development of severe overcrowding, palate expanders, or even standard retainers to maintain bite & current alignment before braces are applied in patients’ later years.

MetalTooth-Colored Braces

Because our orthodontic treatments are intended to fit both adolescent & teen patients, as well as adults, we offer a range of ways for patients to achieve more beautiful smiles with braces. Our treatment options include:

Traditional Braces – As most patients know, this method utilizes silver metal brackets & archwires to coax teeth into better alignment. Metal braces can be customized with brightly colored bands, which our younger patients love. Traditional metal braces are the most predictable way to solve a range of dental problems, including the most complex issues, like bite misalignment & severe crowding.

Tooth-Colored Orthodontics – In the event that a teen or adult patient wants & needs braces, but is concerned about aesthetics, City Place Dental provides options for braces that blend in with natural tooth enamel. With white brackets & wires for traditional braces, your appliances will be far less noticeable & instill greater confidence during care.

Straight teeth not only look more pleasing, but they are also healthier as well. Without overcrowding & with a properly balanced bite, patients can clean & floss teeth easily & do not have to worry about uneven wear & tear on teeth or jaw pain from bite misalignment. As a third braces treatment option, City Place Dental also provides removable clear aligners. Visit our Invisalign® page to learn more.
