Find the perfect fit when it comes to the type of orthodontic treatment you should get.
Do you have gaps between your teeth? Do you have a crooked or crowded smile? If so, then it might be time to consider how orthodontic treatment could help you get the perfect smile. Most people aren’t born with straight teeth but our Sioux Falls, SD, orthodontist Dr. Chris Wermerson can help you achieve the results you want thanks to braces. Of course, there are many orthodontic treatment options out there. Let’s help you determine the right one for your needs.
You Need to Fix Serious Dental Issues
If you’ve come in for an orthodontic evaluation in Sioux Falls, SD, and our orthodontist notices that you have severe crowding or a malocclusion (also known as a bad bite) then traditional braces may be the most efficient and effective approach for straightening your smile. This bracket-and-wire system is able to handle more complicated tooth movements as well as help realign the jaws in ways that other systems just can’t.
You are an Adult Who Wants to Straighten Their Smile
Braces aren’t just for kids. In fact, more and more adults are turning to braces to get a straighter smile. It’s never too late. Of course, we also understand that as an adult (or even older teen) your needs and concerns are a bit different. You may want a treatment that doesn’t alter your life but rather fits into it, or may be looking for a subtler way to straighten your teeth without people at work or college noticing. In this case, Invisalign may be the perfect orthodontic solution.
You Feel a Bit Self-Conscious about Getting Braces
We just touched on this above; however, we know that sometimes kids can also be a little embarrassed by their braces. While Invisalign isn’t right for children or young teens, there are several options that can offer a less obvious approach to straightening. One option is ceramic braces, which use transparent brackets instead of metal.
If you think you or your child could benefit from braces then it’s the perfect time to schedule an orthodontic consultation with the Dr. Chris Wermerson at Wermerson Orthodontics in Sioux Falls, SD.
