What is an Orthodontist?
Orthodontists are specialized in dentistry treatments of misaligned or crooked teeth. Orthodontists not only deal with the cosmetic appearance of smiles, but we also take care of the oral health of all our patients. After receiving and completing orthodontic treatment, our patients find it easier to take care of their dental health with regular flossing and brushing. Proper dentistry process reduces the risk of developing periodontal disease or tooth decay.
Some of the dental conditions Dr. Cochran and his team of orthodontists treat are the following:
- Crossbite, underbite, overbite and open bite
- Spacing and gaps between the teeth
- Overcrowding of the teeth
What to Expect During Your First Orthodontic Treatment Visit
During your visit, Dr. Cochran and his team will conduct a dental exam for each and every patient using diagnostic imaging technology. This will allow us to determine the teeth structure and oral health, and whether one of our various orthodontic treatments is right for the patient.
Orthodontic Care for Adults and Children
We at Cochran Orthodontics San Antonio, Texas always believe that everyone deserves a smile they can be proud of! Our orthodontist offer varied treatment options for children and adults, as you are never too old for orthodontic treatment.
With our wide range of less invasive and more discreet orthodontic treatments, our adult patients can seek to achieve straight teeth and a healthy and beautiful smile.
When children are young, new teeth are coming in, and their jaw continuously grows to accommodate them. It is during this period that the structure of the jaw can be aligned easily and teeth can quickly move, making the treatment time usually shorter. Some of the most common orthodontic appliances we use in the treatment of children’s teeth are removable dental braces, spaces, and retainers. The earlier we identify tooth problems in a child, the easier to provide Orthodontic care.
Treatment Options By Dr. Cochran at Cochran Orthodontics, San Antonio, Texas
Invisalign – Fit The Teeth
This system treats crowded or crooked teeth in teens and adults in an inconspicuous manner. Invisalign treatment offered by Dr. Cochran involves a set of clear aligner trays which the patient uses at all times, except when they are eating, flossing or brushing their teeth. The clear braces are custom made to fit the teeth, making them nearly invisible and removable.
During this treatment, you will receive a sequence of trays, each one being different than the one before, to gently force your teeth into alignment. With Invisalign, you can achieve the smile of your dreams without feeling self-conscious about wearing braces. Incase of wisdom tooth eruption during the orthodontic treatment, you may have to take a break from the clear aligners , till your wisdom tooth completely heals.
Incognito Braces – Behind The Teeth
The Incognito™ Appliance System uses customized brackets, archwires and bonding trays, engineered to work in conjunction with each other, delivering targeted results. These lingual braces are placed behind the teeth of the patient, making them a fantastic and discreet option for adults.
SureSmile – Straighten Your Teeth
SureSmile technology is similar to dental braces, as they both use brackets and an archwire to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, but they are more effective than metal braces. With this treatment, we use 3D imaging to model the realignment of your teeth and create a custom-made archwire to move your teeth more efficiently, therefore shortening the length of your treatment.
Our team of Orthodontists are qualified and skilled to straighten your teeth with traditional as well as latest methods of Orthodontics treatment. The patient can also seek orthodontic suggestion for wisdom tooth related issues.
