Orthodontics for Teens
TBH, we love glowing up teen smiles!
There are no excuses for not getting that amazing smile you dream about. No impressions, no metal braces, no headgear here! Our tech is straightup the most progressive available and it's RIGHT HERE in southern Michigan! Oh, and we promise to make your visits the G.O.A.T.!
You choose what product best fits your lifestyle: Invisalign or Clear Custom 3D-Printed Lightforce Braces. With either option, your treatment starts with a digital scan. Dr. Potocki is then able to digitally move each tooth on his computer into the ideal position for a custom-perfected smile design.
With Lightforce braces, all your braces are custom-printed for the anatomy of your teeth for ideal fit and movement. The braces are placed with a precision printed tray so they all go in in the exactly perfect place to give you ideal results. Because of this upfront planning, patients with Lightforce braces typically only need orthodontic adjustments every 8-10 weeks, about 1/2 as much as traditional braces!
Invisalign has the same digital treatment planning workflow, but a series of clear aligners are shipped instead of braces. Invisalign patients also are fitted with "clear attachments" on their teeth, which might be a variety of different shapes or sizes that allow for precise movement of each tooth in the aligner. Aligners are designed to be worn one week each for approximately 21-22 hours per day for progressive, controlled movement. There may be several series of aligners to get us to the ideal result.
Whether you choose Invisalign or Lightforce braces, your treatment time will be similar, ranging from an average of 12-24 months. Call today to schedule your complimentary examination!
