The far reaching benefits of straight teeth

If someone told you that you could improve your heart’s health, boost your self-esteem and happiness, and lower your risk of headaches all by having straight teeth…would you believe them?  If you said no – rethink your answer. These ailments, along with numerous others, are in some cases directly related to the positioning of your teeth.

Benefits of straight teeth include:

  • Easier to floss

Straight teeth allow for easier flossing which keeps gums healthier and less prone to infection and swelling. Regular flossing is connected to improved cardiovascular health.

  • Easier to clean

Teeth that are straight are easier to brush and clean professionally. Clean teeth prevent bad breath and other unfavorable conditions like plaque and tartar buildup.

  • Easier to chew and bite comfortably

By aligning the teeth, there is an improved distribution of force and wear patterns on front teeth and molars. Misaligned teeth can cause jaw tension and headaches, and orthodontics can correct the alignment and relieve tension.

  • Increased self-confidence

No longer do people have to hide their smile because of teeth misalignment. Individuals who have had orthodontic treatment feel confident to show their smile and without fear of judgment.

  • Reduces risk for expensive restorative dental procedures in the future

Because teeth are easier to clean and maintain, and the bite is properly aligned, teeth and associated supporting structures are less likely to break or prematurely age.

If you were not lucky enough to be born with straight teeth you are not alone.  Dr. Roeder serves patients in and around Asheville, NC and has over 20 years of experience helping adults, teens and children with their orthodontic needs.

After completing a thorough initial examination and assessment, Dr. Roeder will create a treatment plan tailored to your specific circumstances and goals

Common Misconceptions about Orthodontics

Over the past several decades, orthodontic treatment has changed drastically…for the better! Patients have more choices and flexibility than ever before.  People who thought a straight teeth and a healthy smile were out of reach are surprised to learn they too can smile with confidence, and that orthodontics can be a wise investment for the future.

Common misconceptions surrounding orthodontics include:

Misconception #1: Braces and orthodontic treatment are just for kids.
Truth:  Over 1 million Americans over 18 years old currently have braces. (1)

In fact, there are more options than ever for adults to get orthodontic treatment with clear braces, or Invisalign.  These treatment options are discrete, so others may not even notice when someone is wearing them.  Adults can benefit from braces, including increased confidence to smile, and enhancing the ability to floss and maintain better overall oral health.

Misconception #2: The only way to get straight teeth is to use “traditional” metal braces.
Truth:  Dr. Roeder has a variety of treatment techniques to help his patients achieve their goals.

Choices include using Invisalign “invisible aligners” or using a variety of different clear and nickel-free metal bracket systems.  Each option is evaluated and recommended based on the patient’s individual needs and desires.

Misconception #3:  It will take several years to get a perfect smile.
Truth:  The average treatment time for most of Dr. Roeder’s patients is 18 months.

In some cases, it can be as little as 9 months! Treatment can take longer depending on treatment complexity,  patient cooperation, missed appointments, broken brackets, or other unforeseen events.  Recent innovations in orthodontics can accelerate tooth movement, and decrease treatment time, and minimize discomfort.

Misconception #4:   I would have to wait until all of my child’s permanent teeth come in before having orthodontic treatment.
Truth: Having  your child evaluated by an orthodontist early can save time, expense, and possible extraction of permanent teeth.

Early intervention, called “Phase I” treatment, is designed for young children who will benefit from early treatment.

Misconception #5:   Braces are unaffordable.
Truth: Braces are an investment in your future oral health.

Roeder Orthodontics offers a free consultation,  in-house payment plans, patient financing, and will bill your insurance company for you.  Straight teeth make it easier for individuals to maintain healthy teeth and gums, and may prevent future costly dental repairs to teeth.

Straighten Up In The New Year

Roeder Orthodontics wishes you a Happy New Year!  For our current patients, we thank you for your loyalty and dedication to healthy teeth and outstanding smiles.

For those who are considering orthodontic treatment, RO offers a range of treatment options  for adults and teens.  For children, pre-orthodontic treatment, known as Phase 1 Treatment, can ensure teeth  alignment, dental arch development  and proper bite in the years before traditional comprehensive orthodontic treatment.

Clarity™ Advanced Ceramic Braces

Clarity™ Ceramic Braces work just like metal braces, but they blend naturally with your teeth for a discrete look.  They are resistant to staining and easy to clean.  Because they are small and smooth, they reduce rubbing and potential discomfort.

Another advantage of Clarity™ Advanced Braces is they can be customized with colored bands to add a special look to your smile.  Chose one color, or many, depending on the look you’d like!

Invisalign

Invisalign™ uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign™ aligners are designed with 3D computer imaging technology to predict and shape your teeth into an optimal position for an outstanding smile and bite.  Roeder Orthodontics also offers Invisalign Teen™; a specialized system just for teens desiring treatment using Invisalign™.

Damon System Braces

Damon™ Braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable, and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, Damon™ Braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus, the Damon System is available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.

Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, which reduces the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allow the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. As a bonus, treatment time with the Damon System is typically much faster than with conventional braces.

If you are unsure which orthodontic treatment option is right for you, we encourage you to come in for a consultation to meet Dr. Roeder and his orthodontic team.  We’ll review your treatment options, talk about payment options, and give you a tour of our office.  Call RO at 828-274-2500 or send us an message.  We hope to hear from you in 2015!

Invisalign offered at Roeder Orthodontics

treatment-process3Roeder Orthodontics is a progressive orthodontic office in Asheville, NC  that offers clear orthodontic aligners for patients who have mild to moderate tooth misalignment or crowding.  Invisalign is a different type of treatment in which a series of clear, nearly invisible aligners are worn to gradually and gently move teeth into proper alignment.  Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is a discrete way to straighten teeth without the obvious metal wires and brackets. 

Many adults, professionals and teens choose Invisalign because it matches with their lifestyle and aesthetic preferences. Some patients choose Invisalign to straighten their smiles because their teeth moved in the years after being treated with traditional metal braces.

Invisalign invisible braces are worn throughout the day and night and removed when eating or brushing.  Patients will come into Roeder Orthodontics once every eight weeks for a progress evaluation and will receive their next series of plastic aligners during that visit.  Patients will start using a new set of aligners every one to two weeks.  Depending on the complexity of your individual circumstances, length of treatment may vary.

Come into our office to meet Dr. Jeff Roeder and the team.  We’ll assess your smile and using 3D technology, predict your treatment length, cost and show you  how to clean and wear your aligners. Roeder Orthodontics is located at 22 Medical Park Drive, Suite C Asheville, North Carolina 28803Give us a call at 828-274-2500 to schedule an appointment.  We offer both Invisalign and invisalign-teen-large.
