During your child’s initial evaluation, we will determine if there are any problems that need to be addressed and the appropriate time to begin treatment. We may not recommend immediate treatment, but an early evaluation allows us to create the most efficient and most effective treatment plan.
No problem is beyond repair and you are never too old for a better smile! We offer a full range of treatments specifically designed for adults in order to give you a dramatically improved smile, as well as a better bite that includes healthier teeth and gums. If you have ever thought about improving your smile, we invite you to visit us for a consultation.
We offer a variety of treatment options, including braces and clear aligners. We will discuss the options that are right for you or your child, as the case may be, and work together to create the treatment plan that will achieve the best possible results! For those patients who choose braces, we offer advanced bracket technology, including Clarity and SmartClip braces.
Clarity brackets are small, sturdy, and clear, and they offer more comfortable treatment that is also less noticeable. The SmartClip bracket system uses a specially designed clip to hold the archwire in place, making braces more comfortable by reducing friction. This technology often reduces both treatment time and the frequency of visits to our office.
In addition to braces, we proudly offer clear aligners for minor tooth movement. The system of clear aligners provides patients with more flexibility in their treatment allowing them to remove the aligners to brush, floss, and eat.
Regardless of the specific treatment plan, we employ the latest in digital impression technology by using the 3Shape Trios Intra-oral scanner. This advanced technology replaces the traditional, messy physical impression process, and enables us to easily keep our patients’ scans on file! We are then able to use these impressions on our very own in-house 3D printers. These digital impressions help us create appliances and diagnose orthodontic issues with more precision, and outfit patients with their braces even faster.
Our office is proud to now be using, LightForce, the latest in braces technology! Unlike traditional braces, LightForce uses indirect bonding to straighten teeth. Your brackets are first placed on a model of your teeth in the position that our doctor has advised. Our team will then fit your brackets into trays before sealing and curing them. When they’re ready, your braces are bonded directly to your teeth for a perfect fit.
Using 3D printing technology, this new sophisticated system allows us to provide a custom treatment & fit that simply wasn’t available before. The fit is more precise, the treatment is more efficient, & there are fewer emergencies when using LightForce. Ask our team during your next visit if LightForce Braces are a good option for you!
At Fritz Orthodontics, we are proud to offer our own clear aligners created in-house for patients. You may be familiar with this treatment option through examples such as Invisalign©. Clear aligners provide a more comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces.
During treatment, you will wear your custom-designed aligners at all times apart from eating, brushing, and flossing. Every few weeks you will be given a new set of aligners that gradually bring you closer to your ideal smile. In addition to being less painful than braces, clear aligners often involve less treatment time.
