Dental technology is constantly evolving, so read on to learn about your state-of-the-art and efficient choices in Raleigh, Louisburg, and Creedmoor.
Common Ortho Issues
Orthodontic problems can affect anyone— in fact, our teeth are seldom naturally perfect. Malocclusion, or a “bad bite”, can cause problems with chewing, oral hygiene, speaking, and aesthetics.
A bad bite can be genetic or can be caused by thumb sucking, dental disease, poor dental hygiene, accidents, birth defects or other medical conditions. Dr. Grossman pairs state-of-the-art technology with an understanding of the movement and growth of the teeth and jaws to successfully treat many dental issues, like:
Not Just Metal Braces
Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment at Raleigh Orthodontics, but you have other options, too.
At your first free consultation with Dr. Grossman, you’ll learn about which treatment would be right for you based on your smile goals and unique needs.
Removable Vs. Fixed Appliances
At Raleigh Orthodontics, we believe you should be educated on your treatment choices. Learning about the orthodontic problem you or your child may have is the first step to correcting it. Orthodontic treatment performed by Dr. Daniel Grossman can improve both the functionality of your bite and the appearance of your smile.
It’s helpful when patients around Raleigh, Louisburg, and Creedmoor understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.
Fixed appliances, like metal or clear braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment at Raleigh Orthodontics.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily by patients around Raleigh, Louisburg, and Creedmoor.
Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Grossman generally uses fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious treatments.
At Raleigh Orthodontics, we tend to use Invisalign aligners to treat more moderate orthodontic problems.
