Why Choose Scott Orthodontics for Your Treatment?

Affordable Treatment

Many patients are afraid to visit the orthodontist because they are worried that they won't be able to afford treatment. At Scott Orthodontics, serving Greater Bowie, MD, we want every child and adult who needs orthodontics to be able to afford treatment. We accept insurance and offer low down payments and affordable payment plans to make orthodontics accessible to families.

Certified Orthodontist

Dr. Stuart A. Scott is a certified orthodontist who specializes in correcting all types of malocclusion. Unlike a dentist, who might refer you to an orthodontist if you have severe misalignment, Dr. Scott is able to treat the most complex orthodontic cases himself and can even perform jaw surgery, if necessary. He also offers space-age wires (a nickel-titanium alloy developed by NASA) for faster, more comfortable braces treatment and Invisalign® for more discreet care.

My husband and I have two children that needed services from Dr. Scott and so we were recommended by our family dentist. The office staff and Dr. Scott are very professional and courteous. We are very happy with the service. Dr Scott is very patient with my son who seems to have a problem wearing his retainer. I would very much recommend him to all my friends and for anyone who needs the service of an Orthodontist. The before and after pictures of my kids teeth are quite remarkable and we are extremely pleased with his services and the office staff mannerism. Thank you Doc.

Our Orthodontic Treatment Options

Metal Braces

Metal Braces

Metal braces are a tried and true orthodontic treatment. Metal braces consist of a series of wires, brackets, and bands that work together to gently move the teeth into alignment. Dr. Scott uses special space-age wires that are designed to move the teeth faster but with less discomfort for the patient than traditional metal braces.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic Braces

For patients who want a more discreet option, we also offer ceramic braces. Like metal braces, ceramic braces are made up of wires, brackets, and bands. However, the brackets and bands are clear instead of silver. As with metal braces, Dr. Scott uses space-age wires to deliver more efficient and comfortable treatment.

Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners

Invisalign® is another discreet alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gently shift the teeth into alignment over a period of 12 to 18 months. For qualifying patients who want a more discreet, removable, and comfortable orthodontic option, Invisalign from our Invisalign Elite Provider can be a great solution.

Jaw Surgery

Jaw Surgery

Patients with severe cases of misalignment may need surgery in order to complete their treatment. Our orthodontist can perform jaw surgery if needed. Jaw surgery can provide a good foundation for your orthodontic treatment. It can also help you eat, speak, and sleep without any discomfort or issues. Dr. Scott will only recommend surgery if less invasive solutions won't wor.

Which Orthodontic Treatment Is Right for You?

With so many options available, it can be difficult to decide which orthodontic treatment is right for you. 

Ultimately, it will depend on your unique case and which orthodontic solution will help you achieve the best possible results.

To prepare for your consultation and start thinking about which option is best for you, ask yourself: 

  • What's my budget for treatment?
  • Do I care whether you can see my braces when I smile?
  • Do I have any upcoming events that I want to be braces-free for?
  • If treatment is for my child, is my child old enough to wear clear aligners?

Based on your answers to these questions and the results of your dental exam, Dr. Scott can help you decide whether metal braces, ceramic braces, or clear aligners are right for you.

What to Expect during Your Orthodontic Treatment

Dental Exam

During your appointment at one of our offices in Greater Bowie, Dr. Scott will perform a thorough dental exam to check for malocclusion, jaw issues, and other dental issues like tooth decay and gum disease.

Dental Imaging

We use all-digital photography, x-rays, and scans to take images of your smile. These images will be used to plan your treatment. Compared to traditional dental x-rays, digital imaging is faster and safer. 

Preparatory Treatments

Before beginning your orthodontic treatment, our orthodontist will also provide any dental care you need to prepare your smile for braces or aligners. This might include gum contouring with our dental laser or corrective jaw surgery.

Treatment

Once your smile is ready, you'll come back to one of our offices for your bonding appointment or first clear aligner visit. If you are receiving braces, we will place them at this appointment. If you opted for aligners, you'll receive your full set of aligners according to your treatment plan.

Follow-Up Visits

Every few weeks, you'll visit our orthodontist for a check-up so that he can monitor the progress of your treatment. Because we use advanced space-age wires, patients with braces typically need fewer adjustments and office visits than other hardware requires.

Results

Although the treatment timeline varies from patient to patient, most braces wearers reach their desired results after a period of 18 months to a few years. Meanwhile, Invisalign wearers reach their results in about 12 to 18 months.

Dr. Scott is a great doctor and even better person. Same can be said about his team. He takes a personal investment in your well-being...and smile. As long as you keep appointments and follow the instructions (wear your rubber bands!) the process is seamless. I went in to his office in June 2013 fully expecting braces to be on for 2 years, but alas they're off before my wedding in October 2015. 15 months! Can't guarantee it for everybody but I'm so happy my smile will be perfect and brace-free! Cheers to Dr. Scott and his team!

Life after Orthodontics

The day you have your braces removed or the day you complete your Invisalign treatment will be one of the most exciting days of your life! At Scott Orthodontics, we help patients in and around Bowie protect their smiles and help them look as great as possible after completing orthodontic treatment. 

At the end of your treatment, our orthodontist will give you a retainer to wear each night. This retainer will prevent your teeth from moving and protect your newly straightened smile. If you are an Invisalign patient, you'll most likely wear the last tray as your retainer.

Our orthodontist also offers teeth whitening services to help your new smile shine brightly.
