If you’re exploring your options for straightening your smile or perhaps your child’s smile, you’re in luck; there are a lot of options to choose from! However, not every option is right for every person. For instance, you might not know it, but we have options that stop orthodontic problems before they happen. We also have several options to correct any type of issue you might have. Find out which orthodontic treatment from BKS Dental in Fort Atkinson is right for you!

Early Interceptive Orthodontics

If you have a child between the ages of 6 and 10, they most likely qualify to use an early interceptive orthodontic treatment. Early interceptive orthodontics are a treatment that can prevent serious orthodontic problems from occurring. It may even prevent the need for any type of orthodontic treatment in the future. What the treatment does is make room for all teeth to erupt correctly. The treatment also helps the airway and jaw develop correctly which can prevent sleep apnea and other issues from occurring. We use HealthyStart™ and Vivos® appliances as part of our early orthodontic treatment.

Clear Aligners

Another type of orthodontic treatment we offer our patients are clear aligners. Our dental office offers both ClearCorrect® and Invisalign® clear aligners. These systems work similarly. They’re best for patients who need mild corrections and want a more discreet treatment plan. The clear aligners must be worn for 22 hours per day, only removed for eating, drinking and brushing the teeth. Clear aligners are the perfect treatment option for both teens and adults who want to straighten their smile but not deal with the limitations that traditional braces offer like food restrictions, an unsightly appearance, and non-removal treatment.

Metal and Ceramic Braces

The brackets are glued to the teeth and use a wire to apply pressure to pull your teeth into the correct position. We offer both metal and clear ceramic braces. The ceramic braces use ceramic tooth-colored brackets and white wire to help your treatment look more discreet. Patients who have moderate to more severe cases will need to use this treatment to solve their issues.
