Millions of people have been treated with Invisalign®. These clear, customized aligners work similarly to braces – that is, they gradually move the teeth over time, with minor adjustments, until the desired alignment is reached.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, then an orthodontic evaluation may be right for you. Crooked teeth, as well as crowding, gaps between teeth and bite misalignment, are all problems an orthodontist treats, so that you can have a lasting, healthy, beautiful smile! To arrange a consultation with experienced Denver orthodontist Dr. Robert Rudman, please call our practice at 303-331-0222.
Incognito® braces are placed on the back surface of your teeth, the side that faces your tongue and the inside of your mouth. People are much less likely to see your braces when they are placed on the "lingual" side of the teeth. While Incognito® is a specific brand, this category of braces is referred to as lingual braces.
The short answer is – maybe, but only as a final option after all other alternatives have been considered. Dr. Robert Rudman has been providing orthodontics in the Denver area for decades. He has the skill to consider all possible treatment paths to creating your most beautiful, healthy smile. Although teeth removal is sometimes a part of getting braces, it isn't always the case and he can determine if there are any alternatives.
