A lot of patients will ask us about teeth that are misshaped or malaligned. Some patients are concerned that they have a gap in between their teeth or they just feel like their teeth have shifted over time and orthodontics is a great way, a very noninvasive way to help with a patient's smile. Most of the time patients consider orthodontics as just an aesthetic reason, but we know that there's so much more than aesthetics that can be accomplished through orthodontics. As a dentist, one of the most important things to us is function, because if you have good function, then you're going to be able to keep your teeth much, much longer. So whenever patients come in and they want to talk about what their smile is going to look like at the end, we always want to talk about what their bite's going to look like at the end as well and one of the things I explained to patients is we want to make sure that your bite is nice and even all around and that whenever your teeth touched together, they are even and so that way, whenever you're distributing the forces of their bite, they're hitting everything nice and evenly.
So that's another really important part of orthodontics is function. So whenever you're able to combine both the function and the aesthetics together with orthodontics, it's a great service for patients so that in the end, they're very happy because they have great aesthetics and the dentist is very happy because they have great function. So if you're considering orthodontics as an option for you, I think Beaumont Family Dentistry is a great location to come in and just discuss with us what your options are, so that you get both great aesthetics and great function.

Choose Orthodontic Care That’s Right For You
There are many types of people, and the same orthodontic care won’t work for everyone. That’s why we offer several treatments to give you a straight smile and loads of new confidence!
Invisalign is our flagship orthodontic treatment. Both teens and adults love this method’s clear, metal-free teeth aligners. They are molded into smooth plastic and slide snugly over your teeth for a comfortable fit. Treatment is fast and many patients complete their Invisalign care in as little as 12 months.
Plus, you can easily remove the aligners for special occasions and pop them back in later. Since they’re clear, people probably won’t even notice you’re wearing them if you don’t point them out.
We also offer clear ceramic braces, sometimes called “invisible braces.” These are similar to traditional metal braces, except that the brackets are made from non-metal, clear ceramic, making them more aesthetically pleasing. Although a metal wire is still used, many patients prefer this type of orthodontic treatment over traditional metal braces, especially if they aren’t a good candidate for Invisalign.
Our quickest teeth straightening method is called Fastbraces®. This revolutionary treatment uses triangular brackets and a heat-activated wire to straighten your teeth crowns and roots at the same time.
While standard braces move the crowns and roots in separate phases, the Fastbraces® technology combines these phases and shortens your treatment time. Instead of two or three years to achieve a straight smile, Fastbraces® treatment can take as little as three months!
Kids can also benefit from our orthodontic expertise. Your child should have their first orthodontic exam around age 6 or 7. If we see any signs of teeth or jaw alignment problems, preventive orthodontics (Phase I orthodontics) may be recommended. Space maintainers or other oral appliances can help prepare your child’s mouth for braces later on. In some cases, we can even prevent the need for full orthodontic treatment (Phase II treatment).
Dentofacial orthopedics will gently guide your child’s jaw growth to ensure the development of normal bone structure in their face and jaw. We use oral appliances and other techniques to give them a better bite and teeth alignment, and to prepare their jaw for Phase II orthodontic treatment. We often begin this process during Phase I treatment and continue it during their braces treatment.
