Look in the mirror and smile. Do you like the way your teeth look? Be honest. Many adults with crowded, overlapping, or widely spaced teeth want to change the appearance of their smiles, but they’re apprehensive about orthodontic treatment. In honor of National Orthodontic Health Month, Denver’s Dr. Gary Radz wants you to know that you have choices when it comes to improving your smile. The doctor offers innovative short-term orthodontic techniques to optimally align teeth without the unpleasant appearance of metal.
A Few Facts…
If you need orthodontic treatment, you’re not alone. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, nearly 5 million people in the US and Canada are currently receiving orthodontic care. And over 1 million of those are adults, some of whom are choosing braces for the first time, and others who have opted to have braces again after wearing them as kids.
Innovative Care from Your Downtown Denver Dentist
As a renowned cosmetic dentist, Dr. Radz provides the treatments that he feels deliver optimal results. The doctor offers fast-acting Invisalign clear braces and Six Month Smiles®. He works one-on-one with patients to select the method that suits each client’s needs, budget, and timeline.
Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign uses acrylic aligners to create pleasing smiles. The nearly invisible aligners fit snugly and unobtrusively over teeth and exert gentle pressure to move teeth into their ideal arrangement. Because the aligners are removable, Invisalign patients experience no diet restrictions and can easily and effectively clean their teeth. Treatment time with Invisalign averages 12 months for many patients.
Six Month Smiles®
If you have good bite alignment but want to enhance the appearance of the teeth that show when you smile, Dr. Radz may recommend orthodontic treatment with Six Month Smiles®. This effective technique uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to guide teeth into their ideal arrangement. As the name implies, Six Month Smiles® works in six months – or less – to reposition crooked and/or misaligned teeth.
