At 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:
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!
Your Grandview dentist, Dr. Michael Grier is proud to offer the most patient-requested invisible orthodontic solution. 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® 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®
Six Month Smiles® is a modern, aesthetic, and short-term take on traditional orthodontics. 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.
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.
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.
If you’re ready to straighten your teeth without the pain and embarrassment of traditional metal braces, you’ve come to the right place – The No Brace Place!
