Most of the time, when you or your children need to see an orthodontist, your dentist will refer you to a trusted colleague. The same thing happens at the Ritchie Dental Group—kind of. That trusted colleague happens to be Dr. Greg Ritchie right here in our office. Dr. Ritchie has completed over 500 hours in advanced training in the field of orthodontics and is a member of the American Orthodontic Society. So, if you’re looking for orthodontics in Marble Falls, then you need look no further than Ritchie Dental Group.
Invisalign for You and Your Teenager
In addition to providing traditional braces with metal brackets and wires, Dr. Ritchie is also a certified provider of Invisalign in Marble Falls. Invisalign and Invisalign Teen use an organized system of clear plastic braces to gradually move your teeth into position. These clear braces can be perfect for people who want to improve the alignment of their smiles, but need to do so discretely.
Invisalign aligners are made of PBA-free plastic that is smooth and comfortable, so you’ll never have to contend with a metal bracket that is irritating your lips or a wire that is poking your cheek. Furthermore, Invisalign braces are removable. Therefore, when it’s time to have breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack you simply remove your braces and eat whatever you like. Similarly, you’ll be able to maintain your regular brushing and flossing routine without having to maneuver around braces that are bonded to your teeth.
Six Month Smiles in Marble Falls
Another more discrete orthodontic option is Six Month Smiles. This system uses the same mechanics as standard braces, but the brackets are clear and the wires are tooth-colored. If you and Dr. Ritchie determine that only the teeth in your smile zone need straightening and there is no need to correct your bite, then Six Month Smiles may be the ideal solution for you.
Six Month Smile braces arrive in our office in prepared kits, so positioning them on your teeth is precise and, therefore, the outcome is more predictable. And because the focus is only on teeth that show when you smile, the treatment is easily reduced to just about six months.
