PHASE ONE EARLY ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT (AGES 7-11 YEARS)
Phase One Early Orthodontic Treatment for ages 7-11 involves appliances for skeletal correction & habit correction. Diagnosing problems early is critical in orthodontics. Early treatment can help avoid the need for more aggressive treatments like tooth removals or jaw surgery in the future. Some of the Phase One appliances we offer are expanders (pictured), holding arches, space maintainers, face masks for underbites, tongue thrust and thumb-sucking habit appliances, and headgear or Herbst Top McKinney Orthodontics appliances for overbite problems. With an in-house laboratory, you and your child won’t have to wait weeks for your appliances. We make them here, and they can usually be inserted within a week!
PHASE TWO FULL BRACES ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT (AGES 12-99 YEARS)
Phase Two full braces orthodontic treatment starts when all permanent teeth have erupted (usually by age 12 or 13 years). Phase Two usually requires braces on all the teeth for an average of 18-24 months for both teens and adults. We offer the fastest, most high-tech braces on the market, both metal and clear Damon and In-Ovation Braces. These braces move teeth faster, with less friction, meaning fewer appointments and more comfort for our patients.
Also, did you know that 25% of our patients are Adults? Orthodontics for Adults has become more popular due to the aesthetics of both Clear Braces and Invisalign-type Clear Aligner treatment.
INVISALIGN/CLEAR ALIGNERS (FOR TEENS & ADULTS)
Clear Aligners, such as Invisalign Type Retainers, are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable clear plastic trays that straighten your teeth without braces. They are also removable for eating and cleaning teeth. Why wear braces if you can move your teeth with aligners? These clear and almost completely invisible aligners are easy and comfortable to wear.
FREE RETAINER REPLACEMENT
Retainers are worn to keep teeth straight after Braces or Clear Aligner treatment has been completed. Good retainer wear ensures that our patients retain their beautiful smiles. When your Hollywood Smile is complete, you’ll receive both an upper and lower retainer, so you will be able to keep your smile spectacular for a lifetime. But because we know that dogs love retainers and life happens, we give every patient one free replacement retainer if the inevitable happens! Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics knows that sometimes patients forget to wear their retainers too. Part of our commitment to your smile is monitoring your tooth movement even after treatment is finished! We will see our patients for regular Top McKinney Orthodontics retainer check appointments for about 1½ years after treatment is completed. We want to do everything we can to help you keep that Hollywood Smile perfect for your life!
Wisdom Teeth Removal
No need to go to another office for tooth removal! We provide removal of wisdom teeth, and other teeth if necessary, as well as minor gum surgeries (like frenectomies or fiberotomies). We offer a FREE Top McKinney Orthodontics evaluation for wisdom teeth removal and other minor dental surgeries.
White teeth are a sign of healthy teeth! We have several choices when choosing whitening options at our office. We offer take-home whitening kits with and without trays, as well as in-office whitening systems. Our whitening kits range from quick kits like prescription grade Crest Whitening strips and take-home “Go” whitening trays. We also offer custom whitening trays which are made in our lab and are specifically custom fit to the patient’s own teeth and will last for years! Whether you need just a little Top McKinney Orthodontics whitening or it has been years since your teeth were white, we have an option for you!
Custom Sports Guards & Night Guards
We offer more comfortable, custom-made Sports Guards to protect your mouth and teeth from various sports injuries and Night Guards for the protection of teeth for those who grind or clench their teeth during sleep. Sports guards come in a variety of fun colors to choose from and, depending on the sport, different thicknesses. All are made here in our in-house laboratory! Are you grinding or clenching your teeth? If yes, we can help. Our doctors will evaluate your bite to see if a nightguard is needed to help keep your bite safe!
Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics is proud to have an in-house lab with a certified lab technologist, making it possible for us to have faster turnaround on retainers and other appliances (sometimes even on the same day!) No need to wait weeks for appliances to be made and then delivered. Our lab has state-of-the-art equipment and the highest-quality materials. We pride ourselves on fitting our patients with Top McKinney Orthodonticsappliances made from superior products and by a certified lab technologist. Having an in-house laboratory allows the doctors to have complete oversight of the appliances being made and the quality of those appliances.
DIGITAL X-RAY EQUIPMENT & ITERO SCANNER
We utilize digital x-rays, which deliver minimal radiation and far less than the x-ray equipment of the past. We can view these x-rays on the computer immediately and demonstrate to the patient where changes need to be made. The Itero scanner allows the doctor to see instantly a before & after image and eliminates the need for messy impressions.
HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS
At Smiles Hollywood Orthodontics, we stay up-to-date on the latest and most effective materials for bringing you the smile you desire. As an example, we use wires that were developed by the NASA space program called Niti wires. These wires bring about faster tooth movement while still allowing a greater measure of comfort for our patients. Our Top McKinney Orthodontics doctors and staff are always learning about new materials and better innovative ways to best treat our orthodontic patients.
