Having straight teeth gives a beautiful smile that you can be proud of, and allows you a better chance of maintaining good oral health for entire your life. If your teeth are crooked, let the team of professionals at Devine Dentistry help through one of our orthodontic treatment programs.

Orthodontics achieves straight, well-aligned teeth through the use of oral appliances such as braces, clear aligner therapy, retainers, and such. Here is a closer look at the orthodontic procedures available from Devine Dentistry.

Clear aligners

Devine Dentistry offers two types of orthodontic treatment in Nashville using plastic aligners: Simpli5 and Red, White & Blue.

Simpli5 is an orthodontic system that consists of using five sets of aligners. These aligners can be prescribed to treat a single dental arch of teeth or both arches if necessary. If a patient is receiving dual-arch treatment, then five total pairs of aligners are worn simultaneously to adjust both top and bottom teeth. After impressions are taken of your mouth, you receive your first set of aligners in as little as 3-4 weeks.

Red, White & Blue consists of three different aligners, which are used to treat only a single dental arch—either upper or lower. The aligners used are almost identical to those in Simpli5. The Red, White & Blue name is derived because each aligner is marked with a colored dot, allowing the patient to identify the sequence in which the aligners should be worn.

While the needs and cost for each treatment will vary depending on the orthodontic needs of every individual patient, both Simpli5, and Red, White & Blue are more economical choices than other orthodontic plastic aligner systems such as Invisalign.

Both Simpli5 and Red, White & Blue are intended only for patients with minimal to moderate crookedness. This is because each is a shorter course of treatment than other orthodontic options such as traditional braces or Invisalign, which uses as many as 20 to 30 different sets of aligners.

Six Month Smiles

Devine Dentistry also is proud to offer Six Month Smiles, which is a discrete treatment method that can achieve perfectly straight-looking teeth in as little as six months. Using clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, these braces apply gentle pressure and are reported to be much more comfortable as compared to traditional braces.

Six Month Smiles is ideal for patients who may have a short timetable to achieve their goal of straighter teeth and, like Simpli5 and Red, White & Blue, the Six Month Smiles treatment system is considered to be more economical than Invisalign or traditional braces.

Retainers

Have you lost your retainer? The Nashville dentists at Devine Dentistry can help by taking impressions of your mouth to craft a new one, allowing you to prolong the life of any previous orthodontic treatment.
