The Lifelong Benefits of Orthodontics

Boost Confidence

Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you. Orthodontics drastically enhances your appearance and allows you to make a lasting first impression that makes you look and feel good.

Improve Oral Health

Orthodontics is not only a great solution for cosmetic issues, but also sets your oral health up for success, as well. Straighter teeth are easier to clean and prevent bacteria from getting trapped between crooked teeth and leading to dental problems.

Save Money in Long Run

Orthodontic treatment is an investment for you and your family that saves you money in the long run. By addressing misalignment, we reduce the risk of other dental issues such as gum disease, infection, or decay from occurring that would require costly treatment.

Variety of Treatment Options

Our offices in Mitchellville and Silverspring, MD, have an orthodontic procedure for everyone. From braces to Invisalign®, we tailor care based on your individual needs and find the best solution with your oral health in mind.

Braces

When you think of orthodontics, the image of braces probably comes to mind. Braces are a trusted solution often used for children and more significant misalignment cases. We offer both metal and ceramic braces to patients throughout Mitchellville, MD, and surrounding areas to help patients achieve a straighter smile. Braces consist of brackets attached to each tooth and looped with wire to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. Ceramic braces use clear brackets and tooth-colored wires for a less noticeable appearance.

Invisalign

For patients with minor to moderate orthodontic issues looking for a discreet solution, Invisalign is an excellent option. Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners that must be worn for 22 hours each day to gently shift your teeth into place. Because they are virtually invisible, aligners are beneficial and convenient for any lifestyle. Dr. Scott is an Invisalign Elite Provider, meaning he has helped over 300 patients achieve a brighter smile. We also offer Invisalign Teen for younger patients, which can account for teeth that haven't grown out yet and measure if the aligners are being worn long enough.

Aren't I Too Old For Orthodontics?

While orthodontic treatment is usually thought of for children or teenagers, anyone can benefit from it. It's never too late to straighten your teeth and get the smile you desire. Our offices offer a range of adult orthodontic options for patients throughout Mitchellville, Silver Spring, and Bowie, MD, such as ceramic braces or Invisalign. We understand that time is of the essence and you may want the quickest option available, so we strive to provide high-quality dental care that helps you meet your goals while fitting in with your lifestyle.

Understanding the Orthodontic Timeline

Planning

During your initial consultation with us, our orthodontist will perform an in-depth evaluation to understand your dental needs and determine which treatment option is best for you. Our advanced technology gives us an accurate view of your teeth and jaw in order to plan your treatment. If you have any existing dental issues, those will need to be addressed before starting the orthodontic procedure.

Appliances

After determining the treatment, our orthodontist will begin the braces or Invisalign process. Brackets are adhered to the teeth and a wire is placed. For clear aligners, impressions are taken of the teeth and sent to a lab to create custom clear aligners. We use the latest state-of-the-art technology for all cases to ensure a comfortable, seamless process.

Check-Ups

Patients will visit our office in Mitchellville or Silver Spring, MD, for periodic check-ups. Braces need to be adjusted every month to guide the teeth into the correct position. For patients with clear aligners, these check-ups allow our orthodontist to monitor treatment and ensure everything is on the right track.

Maintenance

After achieving your new smile, our orthodontist will provide aftercare instructions to best maintain your results. Braces patients must wear a retainer to sleep each night to keep their teeth in position. Invisalign patients can wear their last set of aligners nightly. It is important to also keep up with routine dental visits and practice good oral hygiene at home.

Corrective Jaw Surgery
 

In some instances, more advanced methods are needed to address severe cases of an improper bite. Our orthodontist may recommend corrective jaw surgery to correct severe discrepancies in size, shape, or misalignment in the jaw. Jaw surgery can drastically improve function and allow patients to eat, speak, and sleep much more comfortably. While our practice serving Bowie, MD, usually opts for other options such as braces, sometimes corrective jaw surgery will provide a greater outcome for the patient.

Worried About the Cost? Financing Is Available

The cost of braces or Invisalign can make some patients hesitate to pursue a straighter smile. However, our practices in Mitchellville and Silver Spring, MD, strive to make orthodontic treatment affordable on any budget. After your initial evaluation with our orthodontist, we'll be able to provide you with an estimate to help you plan for treatment. 

In addition to accepting most dental insurance plans, we offer in-house financing and work with third-party lenders such as CareCredit and Lending Club. These companies split the cost of treatment into monthly payment plans to help make it more digestible. All of our treatments also have a low down payment to help you get started on your path to a healthier smile.
