Orthodontics in Albia IA

Enjoy A Uniform Smile

Do you find yourself covering your smile with your hand or your lips because of misalignment? If the appearance of your teeth has affected your self-image or self-esteem, we encourage you to learn more about orthodontics from Dr. Hussong at Heritage Dental. Our orthodontic treatment options can help improve the alignment and beauty of your smile. 

Orthodontics Options

We offer orthodontics options at Heritage Dental to ensure our patients can achieve the uniform, straight smile they desire. We recognize that every smile is unique, which is why we offer three systems, rather than a universal approach like traditional metal braces. If you desire an accelerated treatment course that will improve the alignment of your visible teeth, we suggest Six Month Smiles. Or, if you require more advanced alignment for your entire smile, Dr. Hussong will suggest a clear aligner tray system using either ClearCorrect or Invisalign

Treatments and Their Benefits

Our treatments provide a variety of benefits. However, regardless of the appropriate treatment for your smile, Dr. Hussong can say with confidence that improving your smile’s alignment will improve your confidence, will make daily hygiene much less challenging, and will give you the boost of self-esteem you need. Benefits include: 

ClearCorrect and Invisalign: These treatments utilize clear aligner trays that rest over each arch of teeth. You will wear them for approximately 20 to 22 hours each day, giving you ample time to remove them to indulge in your favorite foods or to practice daily hygiene. The trays gently yet effectively shift your teeth into alignment. You will go through a series of trays until you complete the entire course. Patients love the near invisibility of the trays that allow them to continue their lives without onlookers noticing the treatment. 

Six Month Smiles: This treatment utilizes brackets and wires that blend with your teeth, so few will notice you are undergoing treatment. Rather than completely realigning your entire smile, this type of clear braces improves the alignment of the teeth that show when you smile. By focusing on visible teeth, you can achieve the appearance of a straighter smile within as few as six months, rather than the year or more typically associated with conventional metal braces. Relying on specialized technology, the system quickly moves your teeth with minimal discomfort.  

Do I Qualify For Orthodontics? 

Dr. Hussong and our team will thoroughly examine your smile to determine which of our orthodontics systems will best suite your needs. Your visit will include a visual exam and may also incorporate advanced imaging, such as X-rays. To qualify for Six Month Smiles, you will require only cosmetic improvement, seeking to align the teeth that show when you smile. Candidates for ClearCorrect or Invisalign may require treatment for:

  • Spaces between teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Rotated teeth
  • Overbite
  • Openbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
