Types of Treatment
Dental technology is improving all the time and you’ll always get the most comfortable and effective treatments at Harmony Orthodontics.
Dr. Mathieson and the team at Harmony Orthodontics are dedicated to providing you with the most up-to-date treatment options available.
Straightening Your Smile
By pairing state-of-the-art technology with our understanding of the movement and growth of the teeth and jaws, Dr. Mathieson can successfully treat many dental issues, like:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Protruding teeth
- Impacted teeth
At Harmony Orthodontics, we use our digital scanner to take images of your teeth and bite to create digital models. This means no more messy, goopy impressions are required to create your one-of-a-kind orthodontic appliances.
Once we take digital impressions, we’ll use our 3D printer to create your unique appliance. You can feel confident that your treatment is completely personalized to your smile.
Metal Braces & More
Most patients we treat at Harmony Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.
Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, but you have other options, too.
After your first free consultation, Dr. Mathieson will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed vs. Removable Appliances
At Harmony Orthodontics, we believe patients should be well informed when it comes to their treatment.
It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.
Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Mathieson uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
At Harmony Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive treatment and severe orthodontic problems.
