All about orthodontic treatments available with Dr. Ania Mohelicki of Boulder, CO
Straightening the smile is easier than ever now that dentists have access to various orthodontic approaches. Many adults avoid talking to their dentist about straightening the smile for fear that they may still require traditional metal bracket and wire braces. However, there are other methodologies available now for patients to choose from. Dr. Ania Mohelicki and her team in Boulder, Colorado work routinely with patients who want to learn more about orthodontic options available to them at her practice.
Types of orthodontic treatment available:
- Traditional metal braces – some patients with moderate to severe misalignment may be the right candidate for traditional metal braces. These are brackets and wires that are connected to reposition the teeth. Patients who have traditional braces may have two phases completed with a resting phase in-between.
- Clear braces – instead of dark metal brackets and wires, we also offer orthodontic treatment that includes tooth-colored brackets and wires that are less noticeable when patients smile.
- Aligner trays – Invisalign is a popular choice for teenagers and adults who have mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth. This method of realignment uses a series of aligner trays that patients wear 20 hours a day to gently move the teeth into the desired position.
- Lingual braces – lingual braces are traditional metal braces that are placed behind the teeth instead of on the front of the teeth. These braces allow for patients to realign the smile without feeling self-conscious about their appearance with conventional brackets and wires.
Which one is right for me?
During an evaluation, Dr. Ania Mohelicki and her team will determine which type of orthodontic treatments are available for a specific patient. There is no “one size fits all” solution to orthodontia, which makes it important to have a plan tailored to the individual and their unique needs.
