Should Arden area children consider braces?

Many parents in the Arden area may bring their child to the Asheville Smile Center to learn more about the benefits and need for braces. Braces, also known as orthodontics, are used to address problems such as:
  • Overcrowding
  • Misalignment
  • Poor bite
  • Gaps between teeth
Dr. Christopher Port of the Asheville Smile Center 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 Asheville Smile Center 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 Asheville Smile Center 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.
