Orthodontic treatment offers many benefits. Most importantly, benefits include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth orthodonticsthat are more likely to last a lifetime. There are a variety of orthodontic treatment options available to meet both your orthodontic needs and suit your lifestyle. State-of-the-art orthodontic treatments are offered at Green Bay Family Dental where Dr. Heidi Eggers-Ulve, Dr. Eric Ulve and Dr. Jessica Pasono can help you decide which orthodontic option is right for you.

Benefits of Orthodontics
In addition to achieving a straighter smile, one of the most exciting benefits of orthodontic treatment is the confidence boost many patients experience upon gaining a beautiful new smile following treatment. Prior to orthodontic treatment, some patients may have avoided smiling because they were unhappy with their crooked, gapped or crowded teeth. Achieving straighter teeth through orthodontic treatment gives many individuals the confidence to smile again.

Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one's appearance.

Comprehensive Orthodontic Treatment 
The goal of comprehensive orthodontic treatment is to correct the identified problem and restore the occlusion (the bite) to its optimum. Treatment can begin while patients have primary teeth, when they have a mix of primary and permanent teeth, or when all permanent teeth are in.

MTM Clear Aligners
One leading edge orthodontic treatment that helps teens and adults achieve a straighter smile is the MTM Clear Aligner. MTM stands for minor tooth movement, which describes how this orthodontic option works by straightening the teeth through a series of minor movements over time. This option relies on clear aligner trays that are soft and comfortable and can be removed to eat, drink, brush or floss. Additionally, since the trays are clear, they are barely noticeable to others.

Six Month Smiles
Another orthodontic option for straightening your smile is Six Month Smiles. This option is similar to traditional metal braces. However, the brackets and wires are made from a clear material rather than metal so they are practically unnoticeable. Further, the treatment time can be much shorter with a straighter smile possible in about six months. Six Month Smiles makes it possible to achieve a straight smile in less time and for less money.

Orthodontic treatment offers you many benefits, including straighter teeth and better oral health. Treatment options are available from the dentists at Green Bay Family Dental.
