Should I get Braces?

If you are considering braces for yourself or a family member contact The Smile Department in Greeley Colorado today at (970) 744-4456. Dr. Eckhardt can straighten your teeth with braces or aligners, and will also discuss other available treatments as they may apply to your unique case. In certain misalignment cases or complex bite problems, traditional orthodontics might be the best option. However, traditional metal braces are attached to the teeth and adjusted periodically by your dentist, and they are not removed until your treatment plan has been completed. additionally, traditional braces may inhibit your ability to brush and floss your teeth, and can interfere with eating and speaking. After scheduling your first appointment at The Smile Department, Dr. Eckhardt may recommend ClearCorrect aligners, which are custom fit to your teeth to provide a discreet and irritation-free method of aligning your teeth, with nearly no adjustment discomfort.

Are There Any Alternatives to Braces?

ClearCorrect is a clear aligner used to straighten teeth as an alternative to traditional braces. Similar to other clear aligner brands (like Invisalign) available to dentists or orthodontists certified to offer them to their patients, ClearCorrect straightens teeth using a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually move teeth a little bit at a time, eventually correcting the teeth and smile to elicit a new, revitalized look.
