Whether you’re interested in straight teeth for yourself, your child or your teenager, he will listen to your concerns and develop a customized orthodontic treatment plan that’s right for you.

Many adults with crooked teeth or misaligned jaws feel embarrassed by the idea of traditional metal braces. In these cases, dentist Dr. Hwang may suggest clear braces, like Invisalign, to his Sylvania and Swanton patients. However, if an adult’s orthodontic issues are more severe, he might recommend limited orthodontic treatment to address the main concerns of the patient or orthognathic surgery to address the misaligned bones that is the underlying cause of an improper bite.
Dr. Hwang offers several types of braces in Sylvania & Swanton, including traditional metal brackets and wires that have been used for many years with predictable and consistent results. In addition to traditional braces, the doctor offers more modern options that are clear and more comfortable to wear. These options include ceramic braces and Invisalign. Some orthodontic options with AcceleDent will move teeth into the desired position and alignment 30-40 percent quicker without AcceleDent (note that these may not be appropriate for every case).
Invisalign is a set of clear aligners designed to gradually shift teeth into the proper position. The aligners should be worn in a specific sequence based on the patient’s prescription. They are comfortable, light and can be easily removed while the patient is eating and cleaning their teeth. Total treatment time with Invisalign ranges from 6 months or more, depending on the patient. If you would like to learn more, schedule a consultation for Invisalign at our Sylvania or Swanton dental office locations.
Invisalign Teen is similar to traditional Invisalign treatment, with a few critical differences. Invisalign Teen comes with six replacement aligners at no extra charge, in case a few go missing during treatment. Also, Invisalign Teen has a special feature that guides erupting second molars into position without throwing off the alignment of the other teeth.
AcceleDent is a special device that is used 20 minutes a day and gently accelerates the movement of the teeth. Studies show the FDA-cleared device moves teeth up to 30-40 percent faster. It uses SoftPulse technology, or tiny vibrations, to accelerate bone remodeling and orthodontically move the teeth into the desired position. The pulses can also help enhance the comfort level of orthodontic treatment.
