If you have minor deviations in your teeth that were not corrected as a child, you can still suffer dental damage if these are not corrected. Lucky for you, as an adult, you can get braces here at True Smile Orthodontics! To schedule a consultation or appointment, give our dental office a call at 918-364-2222!

Dr. Chris Trockel and our team may recommend traditional metal braces if needed for a major change in your dental bite. This consists of orthodontic hardware such as metal brackets and wires. Periodic returns to your orthodontist will be needed for your braces to be adjusted for a specific alignment.

If the deviation in your dentition is small, Invisalign® may be the solution for your smile. Invisalign aligners are clear, removable hardware designed to adjust your teeth in as little as two months. Dr. Chris Trockel will provide you with three to four sets of custom aligners. Every two weeks you will receive a new adjustment. Each new pair will bring your teeth one step closer to their ideal position. If needed, more aligners and time will be required for your teeth.

If your teeth go untreated, the alignment of your teeth can cause one tooth to rub excessively on the other. This can gradually cause dental attrition (when the tooth starts to wear down from tooth-to-tooth contact), which can lead to a compromised area of tooth enamel might start to collect bacterial deposits fostering a new cavity to develop on the distressed tooth.

Dr. Chris Trockel might recommend providing you with orthodontic braces to prevent dental problems. Again, give our professional team a call at 918-364-2222 to get your straightest and brightest smile today!
