At Hickman Orthodontics we’ve noticed a trend over the past year: more and more people are looking to straighten their teeth with orthodontics. Adults have always been interested in having a great smile but we think there’s a reason for this sharp increase in requests: they are looking to the future and ready to navigate the new normal with a new smile. As we return to our pre-covid (mask-less) routines again, many are seeking a Zoom-ready smile while they work from home while others who are heading back to the office are seeking that new and beautiful smile that they’ve always wanted for their grand return!
It’s not just any orthodontic treatment they’re after - Invisalign is the most highly sought. Invisalign Clear Aligners are the way to go for adult orthodontic treatment. Not only do they take less time than traditional braces, but they’re virtually invisible! Plus, we can treat only the elements of your smile that are most important to you.
Get that new smile!
Here’s how it works: we start with a 3D scan of your teeth and then Dr. Todd Hickman uses our 3D imaging technology to map out a unique treatment plan and create custom aligners to guide your teeth along their journey. It will be important that you wear your aligners 22 hours per day - and since we’re all home more often these days, good hygiene will be easier to attain.
We know there are a lot of direct to consumer options out there - here’s why we think it’s important to seek orthodontic care at a local practice: Orthodontists MOVE BONES IN YOUR FACE. Your teeth are bones! Without proper x-rays (we do 3D ones!) you could cause serious damage to your jaw, bite and smile. A local orthodontist, like Dr. Todd has spent years studying in dental school and then additional years of education to gain an Orthodontic specialty degree. Dr. Hickman is board-certified by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) and is trusted by thousands of families in our community.
