Our team at Sensational Smiles Orthodontics truly loves helping patients achieve straighter, healthier, and confidence-boosting smiles. Our goal is to address orthodontic issues as early as possible to prevent the need for more significant intervention in the future. We focus on diagnosing problems early, and offer interceptive orthodontics for children. We offer Invisalign clear aligners for virtually all ages, and especially adults. You can read more about the orthodontics services that our Ripon, WI orthodontist offers below. We look forward to helping you start your orthodontic journey!
Classic, traditional braces, or “appliances” is a time tested and excellent method of straightening teeth and improving a bite relationship. Metal or ceramic brackets are adhered to the surface of each tooth. They hold a thin archwire that places a strategically calculated amount of pressure onto the teeth. This pressure allows the teeth to move into alignment over time. You can learn more about this tried-and-true treatment by clicking on the link below.
Invisalign clear aligners are an excellent orthodontic treatment option for adults and teens who need to straighten their smiles, but want to minimize changes to their professional or public image. Clear aligners have the added convenience of being removable so brushing and flossing are easier! You can learn more about the Invisalign treatment process by clicking the link below.
Interceptive orthodontics is exactly what it sounds like—treatment for children who do not yet have all of their permanent teeth, but are in need of early intervention. Orthodontic problems may be significant in a child’s future. If we diagnose a situation early and perform a portion of orthodontic correction early, often the future orthodontic problem is notably reduced. Using different customized oral appliances, our team can set the stage for a straighter future.
After active orthodontic treatment is completed, our patients will need a retainer or oral appliance to help their teeth stay in place. Retainers to maintain orthodontic correction are the best way to protect your investment of time and money. Teeth are not “embedded” in bone forever and they need the assistance of a retainer to help hold their position over time. By wearing a retainer, our patients preserve their orthodontic result and protect their smiles from many of the changes that happen with time.
