Orthodontics & Invisalign in Savannah
Orthodontics – The Clear Alternative
If you have always wanted straight teeth, but have not wanted to wear noticeable braces, we have a solution for you! We are happy to recommend to our patients Invisalign™ and ClearCorrect™ aligners. They are innovative orthodontics that are so clear they’re invisible, and they correct your smile in only 9 – 15 months! They address all the problems of crossbite, underbite, overbite, gaps, and overcrowding.
With state-of-the-art technology, 3-D computer imaging will produce the complete treatment plan for repositioning your teeth to a beautiful smile. Sets of transparent, thermoplastic aligners are made to fit your teeth and with the first set you wear, your teeth will begin to be gently repositioned to the desired alignment. Approximately every two weeks, you will advance to the next set of aligners as progress is made toward your goal. Evaluation will be made in our office every four to eight weeks. The total time for treatment is based on individual needs.

Boosting Your Confidence
Although traditional braces work well, there are advantages to the Invisalign and ClearCorrect systems. Most wearers choose this option because they are nearly invisible. They are only noticeable if someone looks at them extremely close up. This lets you feel confident throughout your treatment.
As there are no metal or wires that need adjustments, you will have fewer visits to our dental office. There is no mouth irritation from these comfortable, one-piece aligners, and no bulky headgear to wear.
The best part is you can eat whatever you want, as they can easily be taken out for eating and cleaning. There are no worries about plaque building up on the surface of your teeth during treatment, as you can remove the aligners to thoroughly brush your teeth.
Start Early with a Full Range of Orthodontic Options
As recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists, it is important that children receive an orthodontic evaluation by age 7, when they have both baby and permanent teeth. Dr. Smith is our orthodontist, and he has extensive knowledge in the development of craniofacial growth patterns. He can easily identify problems with the jaw and teeth to correct them in the early stages, which saves you time and money.
After examination, Dr. Smith can correct the problems of crowding, cross bites, and malocclusion of lower and upper jaws generally in 6 – 18 months, which is less time than it would take during teen years. Early correction can also prevent extractions of permanent teeth and more time-consuming procedures later on that can cost considerably more money.
Early treatment or interceptive orthodontics brings another benefit for your child, as all the corrections are completed before they enter high school. They will have fantastic smiles for high school plays and prom or yearbook photos!
