At Crown Point Orthodontics, we strive to provide our patients with the highest quality of orthodontic care in a comfortable and relaxing environment. Dr. Lauren Lockhart, as well as our knowledgeable specialized staff, believe in a whole-health-oriented orthodontic practice, where patients are more than just teeth.
Each patient we see is unique, and we create individualized treatment plans to attain optimal results in the shortest amount of time. We offer traditional metal and clear ceramic braces as well as Invisalign® treatment.
Made with high quality stainless-steel, traditional braces are the most commonly used method to straighten teeth since the 18th century. The method has gone through numerous evolutions in design, flexibility and efficiency but the purpose remained the same.
Metal braces straighten teeth with the use of metal arch wires, brackets and ligatures which are more commonly known as the alastics around the brackets to hold the wire in place.
With recent orthodontic innovations technology is ever changing therefore, metal braces are now much more comfortable than decades past.
Alastics are changed monthly for a duration of about 24 months or more depending on the severity. Archwires are changed sometimes every quarter according to thickness and necessity of applying more pressure.
Braces are highly efficient in straightening misaligned teeth as well as constructing functional bites which usually help with jaw pain disorders such as Temporomandibular Joint disorder and restore proper functions of the jaw.
