The Benefits of Seeing An Orthodontist In Your Local Community

Your smile and bite alignment affects so much of your life; you deserve to be a little picky when choosing who can adjust it. Malocclusion, or the improper alignment of teeth, can impact your ability to make friends, get a job, digest food, and adequately clean your mouth. This can lead to isolation, anxiety, depression, tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, and so much more. 

At Innovative Orthodontics, our mission is to give people healthy, beautiful smiles that they are proud of and confidently show off. With online orthodontic services growing in popularity, we want to take a moment to share with you the difference that an in-person orthodontist, like our own Dr. Waters and Dr. Clayton, can make in your care.

Thorough Examinations!

Did you know that before you can adjust the placement of your teeth and jaw, your mouth needs to be healthy? It’s true! When we apply pressure to the teeth to move them, it softens the bones and ligaments in the mouth and kickstarts a process known as “remodeling.” Performing orthodontic care when the mouth is unhealthy could lead to unnecessary pain, worsening the condition, and, in extreme cases, tooth loss. 

Online providers will often ask you to take photographs of your mouth and complete an at-home mold impressions kit. While they get some crucial information this way, they miss a lot of necessary details!

At Innovative Orthodontics, we always conduct a thorough oral examination of our patients to ensure your care is as safe and comfortable as possible. Our team will take X-rays, photographs, scans, and molds of the mouth before Dr. Waters or Dr. Clayton look your teeth over. They will be done multiple times throughout your care. If necessary, they will send you to your trusted dentist for treatment. A healthy mouth will get the best results at the end of treatment!

Personalized Treatment Plans!

Have you ever heard the expression, “No two snowflakes are exactly alike?” The same is true for your orthodontic healthcare! Every patient’s needs and goals are unique, and we know that at Innovative Orthodontics. Our thorough in-person examinations allow us to consider your facial structure when personalizing your treatment plan. So, we will not only align your teeth but also provide you with the most flattering smile and jaw placement.

Also unlike our online competitors, we offer more treatment options than just clear aligners. Addressing a broader range of concerns allows us to help many people in our community find their smiles!

We proudly offer the leading in-office clear aligner brand, Invisalign, for our patients with mild orthodontic issues. These removable trays offer patients a little more freedom and flexibility, but they are responsible for remembering to wear them for twenty-two hours a day. For patients with more complex issues who may or may not want to remember to participate in their orthodontic treatment daily, we also offer clear and traditional metal braces. Both styles have pros and cons, but our orthodontists can help you decide which is best for your needs and lifestyle when you come in for your consultation.

Treatment For The Whole Family!

Most online orthodontic providers will only treat patients aged 18 years and older. While there are a couple who will treat patients 12 years and older, they require that the patient has lost all their baby teeth.

At first glance, that makes sense, right? Why move teeth that are just going to fall out eventually, anyway? However, most orthodontists believe your child should see an orthodontic healthcare provider by the age of seven! Now, most children do not need care at that age, but if your child needs preventative care, interceptive treatment, or guidance modification, it’s better to know sooner rather than later! Truthfully, as your child ages, their orthodontic issues become more challenging and time-consuming to repair, making it expensive and unpleasant for them to undergo. Our team at Innovative Orthodontics happily makes orthodontic care fun and exciting for your children while positively impacting their smiles for years to come.

It probably comes as no surprise that we also treat teenagers, but you might be surprised to find out we can provide treatment for you, too! Whether you are a first time-patient or need retreatment, we can give you the smile you desire! It’s never too late in life to start orthodontic treatment!
