We proudly serve patients in the neighborhoods of Narberth, Ardmore, Bala, Cynwyd, and Wynnewood.
Determining Your Best Course of Treatment
Dr. Wang conducts a thorough evaluation of patients seeking to fix crookedness or overcrowding in their smile. We equipped our office with the latest in image technology, including the Nomad system. This portable x-ray machine allows us to obtain a precise view of your teeth so we can offer the most beneficial treatment possible.
After getting a complete understanding of your oral complications, we discuss the treatment options available to you. Adult patients with mild misalignment can choose the discreet Invisalign clear braces option, while those with more significant crookedness may require metal braces.
Traditional braces are best suited for children or those with significant malocclusion or misalignment. The procedure involves securing metal brackets to each tooth surface, then using metal wires and rubber bands to shift misaligned teeth into their ideal positioning. This method is effective because it grants Dr. Wang more direct control of the process, helping you achieve a uniform smile in small increments.
These orthodontic appliances often trap food in hard to brush areas, making a consistent oral hygiene routine even more important. Dr. Wang recommends avoiding sticky and hard foods that cause damage, such as caramel, hard candy, or gum. Following these steps along with regular visits to Dr. Wang will help you achieve your desired smile efficiently.
The Convenience and Ease of Invisalign®
At Narberth Dental Group, we proudly offer Invisalign clear aligners as a discreet alternative to traditional braces. This system uses a series of customized clear trays to correct minor alignment issues. Each set of trays work over the course of two weeks and replaced with the next set in your progression. Invisalign clear aligners can provide stunning results in as little as a year.
Perhaps the greatest benefit to the Invisalign system is the ability to remove the trays as necessary so patients have an easier time speaking or eating.
