Pediatric Orthodontic Care in Omaha, NE
Here at Pedodontics, P.C., we pride ourselves in offering specialized, custom-designed treatments and provide patients with the care and comfort they deserve. When it comes to the many orthodontic appliances available today, braces are still the most common and efficient way to move teeth into proper alignment. That’s why we offer several types of braces, each one offering different benefits to meet individual patient needs.
Some of our socially-conscious patients, particularly those in their early teens, often fear wearing braces because they think they will be embarrassed by the look of them. For these patients, we highly recommend our invisible ceramic braces.
The Clear Orthodontic Solution
Clear braces function very similarly to traditional metal braces, except they’re made of ceramic instead of stainless steel. They adjust your child’s teeth in exactly the same way as traditional metal braces do. Most of our patients report that they are extremely comfortable to wear and very efficient at moving teeth into proper alignment.
The ceramic material blends in with the natural appearance of your child’s teeth, giving them a low-profile, less obtrusive look. They are virtually clear and barely noticeable against the front of your child’s teeth. The ceramic material also eliminates the metal-on-metal effect that can cause uncomfortable sensations when eating with metal utensils while wearing normal braces.
What You Can Expect With Invisible Braces
To begin straightening your child’s teeth, Dr. Lisa Strunk will take a series of x-rays, measurements and impressions of their mouth. Doing so not only gives her a complete view of their specific dental problems, but it also allows her to outline a strategic treatment plan.
From there, Dr. Strunk will attach the clear porcelain brackets to the front of your child’s teeth and connect them with transparent wire and elastic rings to ensure an inconspicuous look. As your child’s treatment continues, they will need to return to Pedodontics, P.C. from time to time for follow-up appointments. During these meetings, Dr. Strunk will tighten the braces and continue shifting your child’s teeth and jaw into their ideal positions.
