Why May You Need Braces?

Braces are a common orthodontic treatment that can address various dental issues and help you achieve a healthier and more aligned smile. If you are considering orthodontic treatment, understanding why you may need braces can provide valuable insight into the potential benefits they can offer. Here are some common reasons why braces may be recommended:

  • Crooked or Misaligned Teeth: Braces can effectively straighten crooked or misaligned teeth, improving both the appearance and functionality of your smile. This can help enhance your confidence and make oral hygiene practices easier.
  • Overcrowding: Overcrowding can occur when there is insufficient space in your mouth for all your teeth to grow properly. Braces can help create the necessary space by gradually shifting the teeth into their correct positions.
  • Malocclusion: Malocclusion refers to alignment issues with the bite, such as overbite, underbite, or crossbite. Braces can correct these bite problems and allow for proper functionality, reducing the risk of dental issues in the future.
  • Gaps between Teeth: Braces can be used to close excessive gaps or spaces in your teeth, creating a more even and harmonious smile.
  • Jaw Misalignment: Braces can be part of a comprehensive orthodontic treatment plan to correct jaw misalignments, such as an overjet or underjet. Braces can improve jaw function and facial aesthetics by repositioning the teeth and jaws.

Braces are a versatile orthodontic treatment that can address a range of dental concerns from crooked teeth to jaw misalignments. They can allow you to achieve a straighter and healthier smile that promotes not only improved oral health but also boosts your self-confidence. Consulting with one of our qualified orthodontists will help determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs and ensure a winning smile.

Metal Braces: A Personalized Approach for Effective Orthodontic Treatment

We recognize that each patient’s orthodontic journey is unique which is why we take a personalized approach to braces treatment. Our metal braces are an effective orthodontic solution designed to provide exceptional results. Here’s what sets our metal braces apart:

  • Metal brackets and wires for effective movement: Metal braces utilize small metal brackets and wires that work together to gradually move your teeth into their desired positions. With each adjustment, the brackets and wires apply gentle pressure, facilitating precise, controlled movement of your teeth over time. 
  • Suitable for patients of all ages: Metal braces are a versatile and trusted orthodontic treatment option for patients of all ages. 
  • Regular adjustments for optimal progress: Regular adjustments are an essential part of ensuring steady progress and proper alignment. Our compassionate and skilled orthodontic team will provide regular checkups to monitor your progress closely. We will fine-tune the pressure applied to your teeth and guide them into their correct positions over time during these adjustment appointments. 
  • Flexible payment plans: We are dedicated to making high-quality orthodontic care accessible. We offer transparent pricing and flexible payment plans to help you get the orthodontic care you need.

Contact Soul Dental today to schedule a consultation and take the first step towards achieving a straight, healthy, and beautiful smile with our metal braces. We look forward to being a part of your journey to a happier and more confident you.

Ceramic Braces

Embracing individuality in every patient’s orthodontic treatment, our ceramic braces serve as a discreet yet powerful solution to a range of dental alignment issues. These braces blend well with your teeth, offering an aesthetic and effective alternative to traditional braces. Ceramic braces come with clear or tooth-colored brackets combined with slim, metal, or translucent wires. These braces offer a sleek and low-profile option, delivering reliable tooth movement with minimal visual impact.

VPro5: Accelerated Orthodontics

We want to achieve your dream smile as quickly as possible, and that’s why we offer accelerated orthodontics with VPro5. This innovative device works in conjunction with your orthodontic treatment to expedite tooth movement, helping you achieve faster results without compromising on quality. 

How Does Accelerated Orthodontics Work?

To understand how VPro5 and other accelerated orthodontic techniques work, we must first take a look at how orthodontics work. Moving teeth from one place in your mouth to another isn’t simply a matter of dragging them. Orthodontic movement occurs by a process called remodeling. Bone tissue is destroyed, or resorbed, thanks to cells called osteoclasts; and cells called osteoblasts rebuild new bone. This cycle is called remodeling, and without it, you don’t get orthodontic movement.

Accelerated orthodontics works by creating micro-injuries to the bone tissue, triggering remodeling, which facilitates the movement we want. VPro5 is a compact, easy-to-use device that you can use at home for just a few minutes a day to help initiate this process. By biting down gently onto the device’s dental arch piece and turning on the vibrating mechanism, you gently create the micro-injuries that trigger the remodeling process, thereby speeding up your dental movement.

Benefits of VPro5

Bone remodeling, resorption, osteoclasts, blah, blah, blah. What does this mean for our patients? How does it benefit you while you’re wearing braces or Invisalign? Aside from accelerated movement, some other benefits are:

  • Shortens treatment time: Faster movement means that your treatment time can be significantly reduced, helping you achieve your desired results sooner!
  • Predictable treatment outcomes: Orthodontists make a lot of their choices and recommendations based on how predictable a treatment outcome is. If it’s wildly unpredictable, for example, we will most likely not recommend it to a patient. VPro5 can increase the predictability of certain desired movements, thereby increasing overall treatment success. The device aids your aligners or braces in consistently exerting the right amount of force on your teeth, optimizing movement and alignment, helping your treatment progress smoothly, and reducing the chance of unexpected delays.
  • Convenient and easy to use at home: One of the key advantages of VPro5 is its convenience and ease of use. The device is compact and portable, which allows you to incorporate it into your daily routine. You simply use it for just a few minutes each day. The vibrations it emits are gentle and comfortable, making it a hassle-free addition to your orthodontic treatment plan.
  • Enhanced comfort: The vibrations the VPro5 generates help to relieve any discomfort or soreness you may experience after an orthodontic adjustment. VPro5 promotes faster healing and reduces discomfort associated with braces or aligners by stimulating blood flow and reducing inflammation.
  • Works well with Invisalign and braces: VPro5 is compatible with both clear aligners and traditional braces, which allows patients to benefit from accelerated orthodontics regardless of the treatment option they choose. 

You can accelerate your journey to a confident, beautiful smile by incorporating VPro5 into your orthodontic treatment plan at Soul Dental. Our experienced team will customize the use of VPro5 to ensure that you achieve the best possible results in the shortest amount of time. We are committed to providing you with the most effective and efficient orthodontic solutions with our patient-centered approach, advanced technology, and passion for excellence.
