Orthodontics/Braces

One of the primary advantages of using Dr. Vemelle Brown-Ghoston as your dental care provider is that she offers a broad range of services. Unlike some dental practices, Covenant Family Dental Care is a full-service clinic. That means that in addition to more standard procedures, like crowns and fillings, we specialize in numerous areas, including orthodontics and braces.

 

A person’s smile is more than an expression. It is what makes people feel confident when smiling, eating, talking, and laughing. With straight teeth, you will smile more often and find it easier to chew. In fact, with a proper alignment, you will help your natural teeth last longer. At Covenant Family Dental Care, we proudly take care of entire families. For patients of various ages, we offer different types of orthodontics and braces.

 

Optimal Healthy Smile

 

For a bright, beautiful smile that makes you feel confident, we have both traditional and specialized braces. Some people still prefer ceramic and metal brackets, while others prefer clear or invisible braces. Either way, Dr. Brown-Ghoston will determine the best treatment and then she, along with her Dream Team, will provide exemplary care during and after the procedure.

 

  • Metal Braces – Unlike metal braces from several years ago, the ones we provide patients are easy and comfortable to wear. When applied correctly, they can straighten teeth in only six months. The right system will gently guide your teeth back into proper alignment without using much force or pressure. For that reason, you can eat without experiencing discomfort or pain. Because metal braces work quickly, you have a more comfortable orthodontic experience and fewer appointments. For teenagers or fun-loving adults, we can apply brackets in different colors.

 

  • Clear Orthodontic Trays – Removable aligners also straighten teeth gently without the need for brackets or wires. With this option, you would receive a series of new trays that you replace every few weeks. To determine if you are a good candidate, we recommend that you call to schedule a consultation.

 

  • Clear and Invisible Braces – Because these braces are almost invisible, they have become a popular choice, especially among younger patients. However, they also make an excellent option for adults in the business world who spend time in front of prospects and clients. The clear and invisible braces we offer patients at Covenant Family Dental Care are a discreet way of straightening teeth.

 

  • Corrective Orthodontic Appliances – At Covenant Family Dental Care, we have removable and fixed orthodontic appliances, as well. Whether you or someone in your family has crooked teeth or tooth damage from an accident, we have the perfect treatment. Included are guards that prevent thumb-sucking, mouth guards for people who participate in sports, and retainers, plus more.

 

Orthodontic appliances are perfect for a host of problems. They correct cross, open, under, and overbites. They also fix spacing, protruding teeth, and crowding issues. Dr. Brown-Ghoston uses orthodontics for other things, as well. For instance, they prevent or reduce further bone loss around areas with missing teeth. In addition, orthodontics improve tooth function, achieve overall oral health, and enhance aesthetics. They even make it easier for the dentist to restore missing teeth.

 

As a family-oriented dental clinic, we have solutions for young children, teenagers, and adults. Regardless of the issue, Dr. Brown-Ghoston will determine the best course of action for long-term success. Her goal is to create beautiful smiles but also make it easier to brush and floss so that patients retain their natural teeth for as long as possible.

 

Instead of feeling embarrassed by your teeth, call to schedule an appointment with Dr. Brown-Ghoston. She and her staff will treat you with the utmost respect. If you fear going to the dentist, we understand. In response, we will do everything possible to make you feel at ease. Not only do we want to help you achieve excellent oral health, we also want you to feel good about yourself.

 

During your first visit, Dr. Brown-Ghoston will review your dental history and perform a thorough oral examination. At that same time, her staff will make a mold of your teeth, capture computer-generated photos, and take X-rays. With all that, she can design and apply braces or make custom appliances specifically for your mouth.
