Though orthodontic treatment is often prescribed to children and teens, it’s safe and effective for adults.
At Trump Village Dental, Dr. Ripa offers orthodontic treatment with removable aligners. Removable aligners are just as effective as traditional metal braces but are less noticeable and more comfortable to wear.
At Trump Village Dental, Dr. Ripa uses orthodontics to treat various alignment problems, including:
You might benefit from orthodontics if you have overjet, a condition that causes your upper teeth to stick out over your bottom teeth.
Trump Village Dental offers several types of orthodontic treatment, including:
Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to put pressure on your teeth and jaw. The aligners are made of SmartTrack, a thermoplastic that doesn’t contain BPS, latex, or gluten. As a result, treatment is safe for pregnant women and people with allergies.
OrthoSnap braces are similar to Invisalign oral aligners. The difference is they’re made from a different type of plastic. The plastic is similarly durable but generic, so the aligners are more affordable. Orthosnap is an excellent treatment option for budget-conscious individuals and families.
If Dr. Ripa determines you can benefit from orthodontics, he uses an intraoral camera to scan your mouth. Then, he uses a special software program to develop a custom treatment plan, mapping out the movements of your teeth and jaw.
After finalizing your treatment plan, Dr. Ripa sends the scans to an orthodontic lab. The lab then manufactures a series of custom orthodontic aligners specifically for your upper or lower dental arch.
During orthodontic treatment, you visit Trump Village Dental every three or four weeks. At each checkup, Dr. Ripa gives you new aligners and monitors your progress.
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign or OrthoSnap usually takes 12-18 months.* You can speed up the process by following Dr. Ripa’s instructions and wearing your aligners 20-22 hours daily, only removing them to eat, brush, or floss.
