Haywood AlignersIf you have minor irregularities and don't need full orthodontics, this is the treatment to straighten your smile! Dr. Haywood created these devices after realizing that some of our Baltimore, Towson, and surrounding area patients didn't need conventional braces or aligners, and had no bite concerns. You may just have a small twist or gap, or very slight alignment issues that can benefit from a gentle, continuous push or pressure over a short period. The Haywood Aligners are made of a clear polymer and are virtually undetectable and removable. Many times, they can be used in combination with bonding or porcelain veneers to create that perfect smile for someone who just needs a little "push" in the right direction. In most cases now, we use Invisalign Express as a primary treatment. Our orthodontic experience allows retainers and appliances to be made on site.
Metal Braces - now used only occasionallyThese days you can chose from several options. Metal and wire braces are the most familiar option to the majority of people. They are the most economical and suitable for complex orthodontic work, enabling us to adjust the bite and function of the teeth, as well as crowding, positioning, and gaps. We use the finest, thinnest, yet strongest metal available for maximum comfort and efficacy. Once the permanent teeth have grown in and obvious irregularities are noticed, is the best time to consider braces. However, the need for braces is not always obvious. There could be issues such as TMJ disorder, or grinding that hint at functional or bite problems. They aren't only for cosmetic purposes, they can be important for the overall health and longevity of your teeth. With proper alignment and a correct bite, teeth will have the best chance of surviving a lifetime. If a person bites down on something, the pressure will be distributed evenly and each tooth will function as it was intended, thereby alleviating the potential for excessive wear and breakage as he or she ages. The best dentists in Baltimore and Maryland for that matter use orthodontics to create the best overall health and beauty for their patients. It can take between 1 to 3 years to straighten your teeth depending on the severity of the problem. We rarely do metal braces, however, our experience of over 27 years allow us to use auxiliary orthodontic movements with wire should the case require it.
With so many options available in Baltimore, Towson, and surrounding areas to straighten your smile, why not make an appointment so that we can evaluate your case and put you on the quickest and safest path to that smile you desire.
