“The No Brace Place”

Teeth Straightening IllustrationAt the No Brace Place at Grinview Smiles, we’ve developed a method that helps a child grow into their smile, not out of it. This method asks the question:

“Why correct damages from poor development afterwards, when you can prevent it from happening in the first place?”

The system uses multiple appliances at strategic times during oral development  to make room for adult teeth before they come in. Regular braces cannot do this because they require all adult teeth to be present to be started, so regular braces are always started after all the damage with crowding has occurred.

The NO BRACE PLACE METHOD is started when the growth begins early on and finished by the time all adult teeth come in. Our method is ideal for many reasons:

  1. Started earlier
  2. Finished earlier
  3. No retainers needed
  4. Guides adult teeth into their position and makes room for them
  5. Avoids extracting adult teeth to make room
  6. Avoids wearing headgear
  7. Avoids jaw breaking surgery
  8. Corrects tongue habits
  9. Corrects swallowing habits

Alternative Braces

At Grinview Smiles, we understand the importance of a straight, healthy smile. We also understand that nobody wants to suffer through the embarrassment and discomfort of traditional metal braces. That’s why we’re proud to offer the most comprehensive selection of modern orthodontic options in Grandview. The No Brace Place offers several options for discreet, short-term, and invisible orthodontics to help you achieve the straight, beautiful smile of your dreams without the mouth full of metal.

Studies have found that traditional metal braces can drastically affect a patients sense of confidence and self-esteem. We all know that kids can be cruel, especially with an easy target like a mouth full of metal. We’ve all heard the nicknames – brace face, metal mouth, tinsel teeth, cheese grater, the list goes on. When a patient has decided to make the right decision in straightening their teeth, traditional metal braces only add insult to injury. Thankfully, modern orthodontics can straighten teeth faster and more discreetly than ever!

Invisalign®

Invisalign® uses a series of custom clear aligner trays that apply pressure and gently shift teeth into their desired position without unsightly metal brackets and wires.

ClearCorrect®
ClearCorrectLogoClearCorrect® is another clear aligner option for patients who wish to straighten their teeth aesthetically. ClearCorrect® aligners are removable so you can maintain optimum oral health and regular eating habits, and nearly invisible to the naked eye to let your smile shine through treatment.

Six Month Smiles®

By focusing on only the teeth that show when you smile, we’re able to achieve beautiful aesthetic results with average treatment times of only six months. Clear brackets and micro wires are much less noticeable than traditional braces.

Traditional Braces
If, for whatever reason – maybe you require significant alignment or bite alteration – you are not a candidate for any of our discreet or short-term orthodontic options, we do offer the old standby of traditional metal braces. This is still the most trusted and utilized orthodontic system today.

The Orthodontic Effect

We’ve all heard of the butterfly effect, in which a small change in one system can result in a large effect in a later state – the flutter of a butterfly’s wings can potentially cause a hurricane on the other side of the world. Your Grandview dentist applies this same theory to orthodontics. What may seem like a small change, straightening your smile, will actually have drastic effects in all other areas of your life going forward.

  1. Appearance: First and foremost, the cosmetic benefits of straightening your teeth are obvious. A smile is one of the first things we notice about others, and a straight smile is much more attractive than a crooked one. An attractive smile is an indication of health, vitality, and happiness.
  2. Confidence: When your smile is attractive, you feel more attractive, and will have higher self-esteem. When your self-esteem is boosted, you will show off your smile more often, and will have the confidence to put yourself out there when you may not have before.
  3. Persona: With your beautiful new smile and this new-found air of confidence about you, you might notice that others will be drawn to you. When you are surer of yourself, others will find you more attractive, more intriguing, more intelligent, and more successful.
  4. Opportunity: Now that you’ve successfully altered the way that others perceive you, you might find new doors of opportunity opening in many aspects of your life. From personal relationships, to career opportunities, your smile is now working in your favor, instead of against you.
