Modern Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a crucial part of making sure your smile is everything you want it to be. Straight teeth are more than just a pretty smile… they are easier to keep clean, increase chewing efficiency and prevent the onset of many diseases.

The doctors at Midlothian Family Dentistry recognize that not everyone needs the same scope of treatment to move teeth into their proper positions. Modern day orthodontics uses digital technology and state-of-the-art materials to treat conventional orthodontic problems, which, in most cases, means you get through your treatment with increased comfort and in less time than you expect!

Fewer visits for adjustments… nearly invisible braces… faster results… so you can get on with your life and enjoy the smile you’ve always wanted!

Invisalign® FAQs

Who’s eligible for Invisalign Teen®?

Invisalign Teen® treatment is appropriate for patients who have shed all their baby teeth and have second molars at least partially erupted – this includes most teens. Ask your Orthodontist to see if you qualify to start treatment now.

How long does Invisalign Teen® take?

The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case and can only be determined by your doctor; however, the average case takes about 12 months.

Does Invisalign® really work?

Yes! In practices worldwide, Invisalign® has been effective at straightening teeth for teens and adults. Thousands of orthodontists have patients in Invisalign® treatment every day.

How does Invisalign Teen® work?

3-D computer imaging technology maps the complete treatment from start to finish. From this plan, a series of custom-made aligners is produced. You wear each aligner for about two weeks. During this time, the aligners gradually move your teeth until they achieve the desired final position.

Traditional Braces

Midlothian Family Dentistry offers conventional orthodontic treatment using traditional braces for more severe cases. Traditional braces use stainless steel brackets and wires attached to the outside of teeth and are manually adjusted every 8 weeks throughout treatment.

While an effective form of treating more advanced, complicated cases, traditional braces may irritate the mouth, are highly visible and are generally harder to brush and floss. Plaque may build up and cause tooth decay if oral hygiene is not maintained during treatment.
