What is Idaho Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialized dental practice that focuses on the diagnosis and correction of mal-positioned teeth, misaligned bite patterns, as well as correcting abnormal alignment. It may also address issues with facial growth such dentofacial orthopedics.

All services are provided by doctors of orthodontics and those with extensive orthodontic training.

A lot more people than you might think experience problems with their mouth’s positioning or structure due to various reasons—genetics, facial damage or trauma, and the results of past dental procedures being the main ones. For example: If someone has had wisdom teeth removed after the wisdom teeth have had a chance to cause misalignments in their other teeth, they will likely go through life with those same misalignments until they get some kind of orthopedic treatment.

Orthodontic Care for Misaligned Teeth

One of the most common forms of orthodontic work is the application of braces or a similar fixed appliance in order to correct misaligned teeth. In some cases, they may also be attached to any nearby dental implants as well as other fixed appliances such as a palate expander.

Braces can be applied to both children and adults with different results depending on the age of the person.

When applied to teenagers, braces will correct the overbite and bring the teeth into a more uniform alignment. This is due to how teenage bones grow and develop up until 18 years of age. When an adult such as a man in his 30s or 40s wears braces, it doesn’t change bone growth during adulthood but can improve function and dental alignment.

Treatments We Offer

The Spark Aligner System

Clear aligners being put on top teeth.

Want to straighten your teeth without the use of braces? We offer invisible aligners, giving our patients both an aesthetic and effective option for aligning their teeth.

First, we take a small mold of the upper and lower teeth which will be used to fabricate custom aligners that fit your smile perfectly, from tooth to tooth. Dental specialists prescribe our patients anywhere from 13-22 weeks worth of these aligners, each one slightly different depending on their purpose. These aligners work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth over time to move them into proper alignment. The use of these clear trays is safe and effective for both teenagers and adults.

Our Spark aligners are created with TruGEN™, a clear aligner material that’s comfortable, effective, and stains less than other leading aligner brands.

This product provides a lot of customer satisfaction, for good reason—getting braces isn’t your only option, you have more options when it comes to creating a beautiful smile.

Benefits of the Spark Aligner System include:

Easier brushing and flossing—just remove the aligner and you’re good to go!

No cleaning around wires as you would with regular braces.

No worrying about the types of food you eat and whether it will get uncomfortably stuck in your braces.

The Damon System

traditional braces vs. Damon system braces

One of the most compelling reasons to choose Damon braces over traditional methods is that they work faster. Unlike with other types, you can get your teeth in good repair much quicker—which will make it easier for patients who need quick results.

Not only do these self-ligating types offer even stronger protection from tooth decay and gum disease, but when compared against conventional styles like metal wire models, their production time also tends be much shorter.

How The Damon System Works

With three key components that deliver faster treatment, greater comfort, and fewer appointments to our patients using the Damon System, Randall Orthodontics in Idaho Falls is able to provide quality results for each patient.

The three components include:

The Self Ligating System – Damon braces are a passive self-ligating system. This means that they eliminate the need for elastic or metal ties, allowing you to get full treatment without any tightening.

Shape Memory Wires – The shape memory wires used in this system are incredibly advanced and require much less time to adjust than traditional braces.

Facial Aesthetics – To change the shape of your smile, you are also changing how people will perceive and interact with that facial feature. Damon braces provide a proven treatment approach in which teeth alignment is enhanced to make for an attractive face without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.

Damien Braces Come in Metal or Clear Braces

A consultation with your orthodontist is required before choosing which option of Damon braces you’d like. The metal and clear versions have both their advantages, so make sure to discuss it with us during a free consultation! Also, be sure to check with your insurance provider to see if Damon braces are covered in your policy.
