At Quince Orchard Dental Specialists, we believe that a healthy mouth translates to a healthy life. Our practice centers around the provision of high quality, professional and personalized dental services from our friendly, competent dentists. Whether you’re a child, teenager or an adult, you need strong, healthy teeth to chew your food, speak and smile. We are here to take care of your best feature, your teeth, whether natural or synthetic.
Orthodontics is the branch of our dental practice that deals with the correction of teeth that are crooked, irregularly positioned jaws, and teeth that generally don’t fit together properly. Our qualified and experienced orthodontists and support staff are here to help you transform your smile. We provide Lingual braces, which are braces that look like conventional dental braces but they are mounted on the backside of your teeth.
For persons who want their teeth straightened, without the braces showing, lingual braces are a good option. Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth (by the tongue and palate), rather than in front, so that they are not easily noticeable. The process for lingual braces involves taking an impression of the teeth, which is then sent to a dental lab and used to create customized brackets. After the braces have been completed, our orthodontist will use a specific process to cement the braces onto the back surfaces of your teeth. This type of treatment can take anywhere from 18-36 months, depending on the severity of the patient's overcrowding of teeth or their bite.
The aim of our orthodontic practice is to optimize the health and function of your teeth. Our Orthodontist, Dr. Hagan, can address all of your needs such as crowding, spacing, an improper bite, and can help improve facial esthetics. Dr. Hagan and our highly trained dental team are dedicated to ensuring that you have the best orthodontic care in the most comfortable setting. Through the use of advanced and appropriate dental technology, we guarantee the highest level of orthodontic treatment and diagnostics, to produce the finest, most stable results. We encourage you to come in to our office to find out how we can help you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve.
