Find out if getting braces could finally give you the smile results you’ve been wanting.orthodontics

Are your child’s teeth coming in a bit crooked? Do you wonder if Invisalign treatment may be what you finally need to fix your smile? Whether you are a child or an adult, our Sioux Falls, SD, orthodontist, Dr. Chris Wermerson, is here to tell you who could benefit from getting orthodontic treatment.

Here are some dental issues that could be trying to tell you that your smile could be greatly improved through braces:

  • Spacing between teeth
  • Crowding or overlapping teeth
  • Teeth that are twisted or crooked
  • Other misalignments in your smile
  • Difficulties chewing, biting or speaking
  • Misaligned jaws (e.g. overbites; underbites; crossbites)

What types of braces are available?

When people think of braces they most often think about the metal brackets and wires that a lot of children end up getting, but this isn’t the only approach. Of course, metal braces can treat a host of dental malocclusions and they even have the ability to realign jaws to improve smiles, making them a great option for a range of different problems.

However, we also know that teens and adults can often find wearing braces to be rather embarrassing. It’s our goal as your orthodontic expert in Sioux Falls to provide you with braces that fit your lifestyle and make the process a bit easier. If you need traditional braces to get the job done then you may want to opt for a tooth-colored porcelain alternative in which the brackets are clear and the wires can even be tooth-colored.

There are also clear removable aligner systems that can provide you with the straighter results you have been looking for as an adult. While this system isn’t right for children and young teens whose teeth are still developing, once teeth have fully developed many older teens and adults can opt for this nearly invisible orthodontic treatment.

Am I too old to get braces?

While it’s true that the sooner your child gets evaluated for orthodontic treatment the better, this doesn’t mean that there is a cap on what age you can be to get braces. Patients of all ages have finally been able to get the smiles they want through our orthodontic treatments. Whether your child is dealing with a crooked smile or you are an adult who wants to close up gaps between teeth, it’s never too late to get the dental care you deserve.
