Which Treatment Is Right for You?
We promise to work with you personally to create a customized treatment plan catered to meet your specific needs and lifestyle. We offer a full range of braces to choose from and we will help you determine which type is most suitable for you.
At your first free consultation, Dr. Smith, Dr. Heymann, or Dr. Skillestad will assess your teeth, gums, and jaw to figure out whether your orthodontic issues are minor, moderate, or severe.
After this exam, they’ll talk to you about your smile goals and your budget. You’ll hear our honest advice about which treatments will help correct your oral issues.
Metal Braces & More
Many patients we treat at Smith & Heymann Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth. While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have other options, too.
After your first free consultation, Smith & Heymann Orthodontics will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances
At Smith & Heymann Orthodontics, we believe our patients should be educated on their treatment options.
It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily. Besides the obvious differences, our doctors use Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
At Smith & Heymann Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
