Fort Myers Orthodontics Treatment Options for Aligning Teeth
Orthodontics is one of the most rapidly evolving areas of the dental arts. Treatment times have dramatically reduced with the latest techniques and appliances. Here at Lakes Park Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics, Dr. Favalli makes it a point to stay up-to-date on the most current technologies and treatment methods. We want to provide your child with the best of care.

Metal braces are the most common treatment to align teeth. Metal braces are now far smaller, slimmer and more comfortable than ever before. They are crafted out of stainless steel, and slowly shift the teeth into the correct position. They are adjusted every four to six weeks, and must be worn for varying periods of time, depending upon the corrections needed.
Clear Ceramic Braces
We also offer ceramic braces crafted out of clear materials, less noticeable than metal braces. Visually, these braces are less conspicuous than metal braces. They are most often placed on the upper front teeth for a better appearance during the treatment period.
Invisalign has become one of the most popular ways align teeth, with no need for metal brackets, and as the aligners are clear, they are less visible. The results can be much faster than metal braces, and the treatment is generally pain-free. The aligners are custom-manufactured specifically for you.
All that is required is that you wear the aligners every day, and continue to change them as Dr. Oliver prescribes, and your teeth will shift into the correct position.
Damon Smile is an advanced system that delivers remarkable results, popular with both teenagers and adults. This system addresses the contours the face as well as the alignment teeth, with results in as little as ten weeks for many patients. The results are often dramatic, leading to smoother cheek contours, making a narrow smile appear wider, and resolving dark triangles at the corners of the mouth, and often improving the profile. Many patients find that Damon Smile braces have the advantage shaving years off your appearance. The braces are worn 24 hours a day, require fewer appointments, there is no need for tightening, and get rapid results.
