Orthodontics At Meadows Dental Care

Today, orthodontic treatment is simple, convenient and affordable for patients of all ages. And an attractive smile is just one of the benefits. Severely misaligned teeth and jaws can cause sleep apnea, snoring, and other breathing problems. Orthodontic treatment results in correctly aligned teeth that provide ideal jaw function and a great smile! Additionally, your teeth are easier to clean and more resistant to gum disease.

Why Choose an Orthodontic Specialist?

Orthodontics is more than just creating a beautiful smile. Orthodontic treatment can change entire facial structures making it very important that you receive the best orthodontic care available. Orthodontic specialists, such as Dr. Hao, have extensive and specialized training enabling him to provide his patients with personalized care.

How Does Treatment Work?

Each patient's orthodontic condition requires a treatment plan based on a specialized diagnosis of the case. The treatment process involves X-rays, dental impressions and photographs. Braces have one aim: to use gentle pressure to move teeth into proper alignment. Treatment time varies depending on age, patient compliance and the severity of the condition. Generally, treatment lasts for 12 to 18 months and is facilitated by ideal patient cooperation.

What Treatments Does Dr. Hao Offer?

Dr. Hao understands that not every patient is the same and that each patient needs something different when it comes to orthodontic care. This is why he is happy to provide multiple options when it comes to orthodontic treatment.

This system is available to teen to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. The benefits of this system are clear when it comes to orthodontic treatment, and your personal life. This system is virtually invisible making it unknown to others that you are wearing orthodontic braces. With Invisalign you are also able to remove the trays to eat, brush and floss and any other time you feel the need to remove them.

Damon® Brackets

damon.jpgDamon braces were invented by Dr. Dwight Damon. The Damon bracket utilizes (sliding-door) technology known as "self-ligation" that allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. No elastic or steel ties are used with Damon brackets. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. In addition, Damon braces often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed.
