Your best smile is available to you now at Downtown Parker Dental. If your teeth are crooked, poorly spaced or maloccluded, Dr. Robert bracesDiGiorgio can help. In his Parker, CO, dental practice, he evaluates patients for orthodontics, including metal and translucent braces and innovative Invisalign clear aligners. He'll help you decide which kind of treatment is right for you.

Why undergo orthodontic treatment?

The American Association of Orthodontists maintains that a straight smile increases self-confidence and promotes lasting oral health. Well-aligned teeth bite together well, wear more evenly and are less prone to decay, gum disease, jaw joint problems and systemic health issues such as headaches, ear pain and more.

Your dentist in Parker has a special interest in orthodontics because he sees its long-term benefits. While orthodontic correction is best started in childhood, college-age individuals and adults of all ages may be candidates for traditional braces or modern clear aligners, such as Invisalign.

The right treatment

Braces are very individualized. What works for one patient may not be right for another. When you come to Downtown Parker Dental for a consultation with Dr. DiGiorgio, you'll receive a clinical evaluation of your teeth, gums and bone structure.

This thorough examination includes digital X-rays, photos and scans which show the dentist the positions of your teeth, how they, and your upper and lower jaw, bite together, and if any muscular imbalances are present. Then, Dr. DiGiorgio will present his findings and tell you if treatment is necessary and how it would look.

Available options

Today's orthodontic appliances are far different from those used even a single generation ago. What most people think of as braces--metal bands, wires and ligatures---are not simply stainless steel, but rather a mix of steel, copper, titanium and other materials. Some patients may wear translucent braces composed of biocompatible ceramic materials.

Finally, teenagers and adult patients may qualify for removable Invisalign aligners. Invisible and thin, these acrylic appliances come in pairs which snap over top and bottom teeth. They correct bite and spacing problems without the obvious appearance and complex brushing and flossing routines characteristic of conventional-style braces.
