From braces and retainers to teeth whitening, we have the know-how to give you a smile that lights up like neon at night. A smile that’s not only healthier, but also more confident – a truly VIBRANT smile.
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends all kids see an orthodontist for screening by the time they’re seven. Seven is a great age to check on your child’s smile, as this is the perfect time for us to see if there are any problems or issues occurring. Not only that, if we catch a problem early enough, we can do something about it before it becomes an even bigger problem that requires more extensive care, such as a tooth extraction. Early intervention means we can monitor your child’s smile as it’s growing so we can provide the needed treatment to help guide your child’s teeth into their correct position.
So, if you have a child that’s around seven, join our Vibrant Kids’ Club today! It’s a complimentary program that gives your child free growth screenings as well as free checkups to monitor your child’s smile until they’re ready for treatment.
The best part about being a teen and needing braces is that most teens are already wearing them, so you won’t be alone. In fact, getting braces as a teen has sort of become a rite of passage. The thing is, today’s braces are nothing like the ones your mom or grandma wore. In fact, today’s braces are lighter, smaller, stronger, and have a lower profile, making them more comfortable to wear and less painful.
At Vibrant Orthodontics, Dr. Rezaie goes out of her way to get to know your teen, finding out their hobbies, what instruments they play, what they like to do for fun, and more. Knowing all of this allows Dr. Rezaie to create a custom treatment plan for your teen that fits not only their lifestyle, but also your budget.
Orthodontic treatment is often associated with children and teens; however, one in four orthodontic patients are adults. There are several reasons that adults are taking advantage of modern orthodontic techniques: treatment can enhance lip support, as well as offer a broader, more youthful smile. Also, long term health of the teeth and gums is established with alignment of the teeth.
Treatment aids in your ability to clean between teeth and keep your gums healthy. In some cases, orthodontic treatment is coordinated with other professionals, including dentists or physicians, in order to achieve the desired results.
Invisalign is a subtle, convenient form of orthodontic treatment that utilizes a series of clear aligners that fit over your teeth to gradually shift your teeth into their proper position. No wires, no brackets – just a clear retainer that allows you to straighten your smile without anyone knowing! Sounds pretty awesome, right?! That’s because IT IS!
What Are The Benefits of Clear Aligners?
Below are some commonly asked questions about Invisalign, answered!
Does Invisalign work as well as braces?
Yes, and at times, better and more efficiently with less appointments, short appointments, less oral hygiene problems, and less life interruptions. Sounds too good to be true, right? It isn’t!
How often do you wear aligners?
The ultimate goal would be 22 hours a day – we ask you to wear your Invisalign at all times, except when you’re eating or brushing your teeth. Sounds like a lot but it’s really easy- scout’s honor!
Can I drink with my aligners in?
You can drink water with them in 100%! We would never dream of taking away your coffee or wine (if you’re 21+!) but we do ask that you take out your Invisalign before enjoying those items. Since you are changing your aligners frequently, it may be okay to have some non-dark non-water drinks as long as you rinse the aligner vigorously afterwards.
