How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic -1Gone are the days of unsightly metal bands wrapped around every tooth and painful steel wires that were shoved into the bracket causing pain and discomfort as well as frequent visits to the orthodontic office.

Today we bond low profile brackets to the teeth, so the brackets are much more comfortable. Dr. Engen uses high tech wires developed by NASA. These high tech “memory wires” are small and flexible wires which deliver a low, gentle force over a longer range of movement. As these high tech wires resume their original shape they bring the teeth with them. This allows for gentle movement of teeth with 6, 8, and sometimes even 10 weeks between appointments. This saves you from having to take time off of work, and taking the kids out of school excessively. This allows for more efficient tooth movement, decreasing treatment time and providing more comfort.Orthodontic

Due to the severity of my dental needs, my regular dentist referred me to Dr. Engen’s office. Being referred to a periodontal specialist is not something I would wish upon anyone, and it was difficult going to another dentist. However, from the minute I entered their office I was greeted by professional, friendly staff members who acknowledged me with a warm smile and a pleasant, cheerful welcome. The doctors and hygienists demonstrated a high level of expertise and technical competency by effectively communicating the options available to address my dental needs. Each and every staff member I encountered, from the receptionist, to the doctors are extremely dedicated to creating a long term relationship with each one of their patients, including taking the time to educate each patient about oral hygiene. The staff at your office works harmoniously, cooperatively and effectively as a team to make your time with them as productive as possible. I would highly recommend this office to anyone seeking resolution to any dental issues and be assured you will be pleasantly surprised with your time with them.
