Dr. Michael Dierkes Straightens Smiles with Orthodontics in Roswell, GA

Straight teeth go a long way toward creating a beautiful smile, but they are also important for overall oral health. If you have crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth, it is important to correct them in order to prevent future dental problems and to ensure that you’ll keep your own teeth for life. There are several options available for straightening your teeth, including traditional braces and Invisalign, and Dr. Michael Dierkes can help you achieve a smile you can be proud of with quality orthodontics in Roswell, GA.

Traditional braces have been around for years and are considered the standard correction method among patients looking to straighten their smiles. Able to correct even serious cases of misalignment, today’s braces are made with incredibly strong metals that are durable enough to wear for a considerable time on your teeth. While metallic, contemporary braces offer some customization with different colored bands that can be added, if a mouth full of metal doesn’t appeal to you, Dr. Dierkes also offers Invisalign.

If you’re in need of a mild to moderate correction, Invisalign may be a great option for you. Using a series of virtually invisible aligners, Invisalign adjusts your teeth bit by bit with a new aligner used approximately every two weeks. Made of a thin, comfortable plastic, unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, which allows for convenient cleaning and eating. Because the aligners are removable, your teeth will not experience the same discoloration and plaque buildup that can occur with metal brackets and wire. In addition, you will not have the same diet restrictions that you would have with traditional braces. You will still be able to eat all the foods you like, including popcorn, chips, pretzels, apples, nuts and corn.

In addition to braces, Dr. Dierkes also offers surgical orthodontics, which is a treatment only reserved for those who have abnormalities in their jaw and cannot be corrected with functional appliances. This includes severe cases of malocclusion or bad bite.

Whether you’re an adult or teen, it’s not too late to straighten your teeth. In Roswell, GA Dr. Michael Dierkes will make sure your smile is both beautiful and healthy. Schedule an appointment by calling 678-671-2176.
