Truly a family practice
We specialize in both child and adult orthodontics, so it is not unusual to have parents and their children side by side; RTO is truly a family practice. Even if you missed the chance to have orthodontic treatment as a child, it is never too late to have a perfect, healthy smile. More adults are seeking orthodontic treatment than ever before. An attractive smile is an asset which will help you in both your personal and professional life. It is one of the best investments you can make for your self-confidence and your health.
Generally speaking, there are three types of adult orthodontic care that many times are intertwined:
- Esthetic improvement for a wonderful smile
- Pre-restorative treatment prior to implants, crowns or veneers
- Surgical treatment in order to correct a skeletal disharmony
The big question: How will you straighten my teeth?
After digital photographs and a digital X-ray are taken, the doctor will evaluate your orthodontic case. Your initial visit, including radiographs and photos, is complimentary. As with orthodontics for children, we design an individual treatment plan for each patient, implementing a range of techniques and appliances to meet specific needs. We will discuss your orthodontic needs with you and help you choose the best treatment option for your lifestyle
New orthodontic treatments are constantly being developed. Today’s braces are smaller, more cosmetically pleasing, more resilient and more comfortable than the appliances used in past years. New materials have been developed so that treatment time is minimized. In some instances, removable Invisalign appliances may be used to move teeth. The opportunity to have the smile you want is here and now!
Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, comfortable and attractive. RTO uses an incredibly specialized self-ligating bracket that decreases friction, allowing a significantly increased comfort level and decreased treatment time.
Clear (Ceramic) braces
Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are a popular esthetic option that can dramatically reduce the appearance of the braces.
The Invisalign® System is a series of clear overlay templates—called aligners—that have been customized by the doctors, using computer simulation, to gradually move your teeth. Development of new aligner materials and techniques have opened the door for more difficult and challenging care to be delivered with the advantage of removable, clear aligners. If you have been advised against Invisalign in the past, it may be time for a second look!.
