Regarding Ortho Care
Understanding the process of getting orthodontic care doesn’t need to send you into a tailspin. In fact, the mere notion that a sensational smile awaits you after treatment with orthodontics is the main reason a patient opts to get braces. Improving your teeth step by step enables your smile to be corrected and enhance your appearance.
At Kenton Dental Care, we want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience. Our practice is dedicated to making sure that you receive the quality guidance you deserve.
Our Unique Process
While orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic, they may be removable as they carefully control the direction of the teeth, ensuring they’re in the proper position. Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can now choose clear or metal brackets, and in some cases, the color of your appliance.
Any point in your life is a great age to wear braces. Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort. Before you begin your orthodontic care, Dr. Yazar will discuss all of your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take.
Our orthodontic workflow at Kenton Dental Care is a process that involves several steps to your smile success. They are as follows:
Long before you actually get your braces put onto your teeth, Dr. Yazar will obtain orthodontic records that include: A Ceph/Pan/Hand-Wrist X-ray to evaluate growth, specifically for growing kids, and a Digital Intraoral Scan to create digital study models. We use the CEREC Ortho Software and CEREC Omnicam, a digital scan which is then transferred to Dolphin Software to create digital study models.
This dental photography provides us with frontal views of the face, one in repose, and one smiling. We also take photographs that include five retracted views of the teeth, including an anterior view, a right and left view, and two mirror occlusal shots.
Detailed initial dentofacial analysis
A facial evaluation through smile analysis, Dr. Yazar divides the face horizontally into three equal thirds for optimal balance and pleasing proportions for the achievement of a more attractive and harmonious face. Creating a naturally aesthetic smile is part of this design procedure.
There are several moving parts to orthodontic care, and we want to be sure our patients understand the thoroughness we take to restore your smile. The entire team at Kenton Dental Care is committed to the process, therefore a consultation with Dr. Yazar is important to assure your treatment plan is a success.
You’re almost ready for the final step, however, this is the part of the process whereby we place the brackets on casts and a transfer tray, awaiting their formation to fit your mouth.
