Educating Patients on their Oral Health Options

Cosmetic Orthodontics

Leave a comment

clear-correctLimited-objective orthodontics meets the aesthetic demands and quality of cosmetic dentistry we time and time again seek in our practice.  The concept of “Contemporary Orthodontics” is a useful tool of limited outcome orthodontics for adult patients. It has recently been rebranded and commonly referred to as short-term orthodontics because it can usually be accomplished in 12 months or less.

The entire process of using clear aligners has been developed by specialist orthodontists to be delivered by general dentists. Short-term orthodontics was never meant to be a substitute for full (or comprehensive) orthodontics.  Rather, it is an extension of cosmetic dentistry and an aesthetic alternative to veneers and crowns.

Preferring to move teeth rather than brandish a hand-piece, I use removable aligners to reach comparable aesthetic results.  It is rewarding to create great aesthetic results and save patients from having heavily prepped teeth restored with porcelain crowns or veneers and the resulting problems that may occur with these treatments. With cosmetic orthodontics, I look forward to seeing our patients. It is enjoyable to see how treatment unfolds, critically appraise cases and decide on our next course of action to bring our treatment plan to fruition.

And as our patients approach the finishing line, we notice the tremendous improvement made to their smile.  Clear aligners have been a fantastic addition to my skill set, enabling me to produce huge improvements to patients’ smiles and self-confidence.  It is the most rewarding aspect of my career to date.   I look forward to a working day when I have an orthodontic appliance review.
