Should Arden area children consider braces?

Many parents in the Arden area may bring their child to the Family Dental Health of South Asheville to learn more about the benefits and need for braces. Braces, also known as orthodontics, are used to address problems such as:

Children Invisalign Braces in, Arden
  • Overcrowding
  • Misalignment
  • Poor bite
  • Gaps between teeth

Dr. Christopher Port of the Family Dental Health of South Asheville believes many children may benefit from the placement of braces. However, unlike traditional orthodontics, Dr. Christopher Port offers two other methods of treatment known as Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

Invisalign orthodontic treatment uses clear aligner trays to reposition the teeth strategically within the dental arch. This process requires children to wear clear trays over their teeth all day and night to enjoy optimum results. Six Month Smiles, on the other hand, is another method of treatment used for mild cosmetic cases and uses clear brackets and wires to straighten the teeth. Both are effective but Dr. Christopher Port of the Family Dental Health of South Asheville can work with patients to determine the best one for their specific needs, desires, and budget. These two options are typically more desirable than conventional braces, which can cover the smile during long treatment times and may be a source of embarrassment for many.

Patients located in the Asheville area can speak to Dr. Christopher Port to ask about the many methods of realignment available and determine which one is most appropriate for their needs. Some patients may prefer traditional braces but many love the idea of less noticeable alternatives such as Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. They are available for patients who are interested in beautiful methodologies of improving the appearance of the smile. Contact the Family Dental Health of South Asheville today to schedule your consultation appointment and learn about the ways in which Invisalign and Six Month Smiles can make a dramatic impact on the beauty and function of your natural smile.

I have such high anxiety of going to the dentist. Haven’t been in 4 years because of it. Alivia talk me through what they do for patients with anxiety and made me feel easy about coming in. Then Melissa my hygienist was so comforting and made me feel easy through my whole cleaning. She also payed attention to every concern I brought up. I would recommend 100%. Thank you Asheville Smiles for making this experience awesome and helping me look forward to my next appointment for the first time.
