Here at Impressive Orthodontics, we are proud to offer an iTero® 3D scanner. This scanner eliminates the need for messy impressions and helps to achieve the best fit appliances possible, in much less time! Our iTero® Scanner offers a simulated outcome for patients; in just minutes, you will be able to see what the effect of your treatment will look like, before you even start it! We take pride in providing modern, high quality care so you can have the smile you deserve. We are constantly updating our equipment in order to provide patients with state-of-the-art dental care.
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children come in for a check-up as early as 7 years old. Sometimes we can detect a dental malocclusion and intervene before it becomes a big problem. The earlier we catch problems with your child’s bite, the simpler they are to fix. Influencing jaw growth, creating room or preserving space for erupting teeth, addressing crowding, and reducing the need for tooth extraction are just a few benefits of interceptive treatment. The results are often better than if we wait and will require significantly less work and may even shorten time in treatment, in the future.
Traditional braces use stainless steel brackets and archwires to move your teeth into their proper position. Many teenagers like to decorate their braces with different colored rubber bands to give them a colorful and unique smile. You can choose a new color (or colors) during every adjustment!
The Empower®️ Bracket system uses self-ligating brackets and light archwires to move your teeth. The brackets are smaller, smoother, and more comfortable than traditional braces. You can still dress them up with colored rubber bands to give your smile some extra attention, if you choose. You can choose a new color (or colors) during each adjustment visit.
Most teens and adults are reluctant to get the orthodontic care they need due to the appearance of orthodontic appliances. That’s why we offer clear braces, which are much less noticeable than metal braces, but still give patients a smile they deserve. Clear braces are just like metal braces, but they are almost invisible.
Invisalign® is a wonderful, modern, alternative treatment to braces. You can straighten your teeth without installing metal in your mouth. Instead, we use plastic trays (also known as aligners) to move your teeth back into place. Each aligner is custom made to fit your mouth so you don’t have to worry about mouth irritation or anything else that traditional braces can cause.
Invisalign For Teens
Many teenagers are affected by malocclusions that need to be corrected. However, the thought of going through high school with braces may be your teen’s worst nightmare. Luckily, Invisalign Teen® can be very helpful. Your teenager can get the smile that he or she deserves without bulky wires and brackets.
After you have worn your braces for the appropriate amount of time, we move into the retention stage of your treatment. It is VERY important not to skip this step, or all of your hard work will not pay off as you had hoped. Your teeth may shift around or move back to where they were instead of staying in place.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is considered a dental specialty and helps complex cases involving the mouth, jaw, face, and skull. If your case requires surgical orthodontics, your orthodontist will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to provide you with the best and most comprehensive care possible.
Here at Impressive Orthodontics, we work hard to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. We offer several different treatments that can be effective no matter how old you are. More and more orthodontic treatments are becoming available to give adults the smile that they want.
Braces For Teens
Braces are not as scary as most teens think. Technology has advanced a lot in recent years, providing us with newer styles of braces. The result is a faster, more comfortable, and more effective treatment. Braces come in different colors, styles, and materials, so your teen can customize their look and express their personality.
