Common Reasons for Braces and Orthodontics
Many dental problems are genetic. Other dental problems are the results of bad habits such as thumb-sucking, using a pacifier, or poor oral hygiene that led to tooth decay and the premature loss of baby teeth.
Orthodontic treatment can do more than make a smile beautiful by correcting gapped, crowded, or misaligned teeth. It can also help you chew better, speak more clearly, improve the health of your gums, and reduce or eliminate the need for tooth extractions or jaw surgery. A beautiful smile can also boost self-confidence and self-esteem.
Our orthodontist in Douglasville offers multiple types of orthodontic treatment. Phase 1 Treatment, which is also called early treatment or interceptive orthodontic treatment, typically begins in children under the age of 10 who still have some of their baby teeth. The early treatment can help correct severe crowding, bite problems, narrow jaws, and overbites. Early treatment can save time and money later.

Phase 2 Treatment or full orthodontic treatment occurs when the permanent teeth have come in, typically after age 11. The goal of Phase 2 treatment is to straighten your permanent teeth and align your jaw. The result is a beautiful, straight smile.

Types of Braces and Clear Aligners
At Coast Dental Douglasville, our orthodontist will give you treatment options designed to accommodate your dental needs and your lifestyle. We offer traditional braces, which many children and teenagers like to customize with colored bands. We also offer crystal clear braces featuring clear ceramic brackets that are nearly invisible against the tooth. Many people choose a combination of clear braces on the top teeth and metal braces on the bottom. Business professionals in particular like having the clear bracket option.
Coast Dental Douglasville also offers two types of clear aligners: Invisalign and ClearCorrect. These nearly-invisible aligners are like retainers; you remove them to eat, brush, and floss. There are no food restrictions and they are easy to clean.
