At Renken Dentistry, we want every patient to be healthy and feel confident in their teeth.
Many patients don’t realize that having straight teeth isn’t just about cosmetics, but that there are also health benefits. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean, leading to reduced gum disease and tooth decay. Aligning teeth carefully also distributes force across all your teeth when you chew or if you grind your teeth at night, which reduces stress on individual teeth and helps avoid wear and damage.
That’s why we offer orthodontics, or corrective dentistry, to patients at all our locations.
With modern dental technology, straightening your smile doesn’t mean years of uncomfortable metal braces anymore. You can have a healthy, straight smile without metal brackets and tight wires. We use the most effective and innovative advancements in dentistry in a welcoming and comfortable environment.
We are happy to provide Invisalign for our patients. Invisalign is the perfect choice for patients who want to straighten their teeth without the inconvenience of metal braces. The clear aligner trays are barely visible and much less intrusive than traditional metal braces. While Invisalign should be worn at least 20 hours a day for maximum effectiveness, they are taken out to eat, brush, and floss. This also helps avoid causing stains and tooth decay that can sometimes happen when food gets stuck behind traditional metal braces. The clear aligner trays are also easy to remove for special occasions, such as a wedding. There are no uncomfortable wires to tighten or metal brackets in your mouth. Instead, you will receive a progression of clear aligner trays that move your teeth towards the desired position. The process is usually faster than metal braces as well, and can be completed in about a year.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is another orthodontic treatment that shifts and straightens teeth gently and quickly. As you can tell by the name, Six Month Smiles gets the job done faster! Like traditional braces, Six Month Smiles uses fixed brackets and elastics that remain in place during the treatment process. Much like Invisalign, 6 Month Smiles is highly effective at unobtrusively correcting misaligned teeth. This system takes the benefit of traditional braces with the minimal visibility of modern orthodontic treatment.
