Traditional metal braces that use rubber bands have been a very successful way to achieve a fantastic smile for a long time. While metal braces are a great starting point for a beautiful smile, we are excited to offer self ligating braces to our patients. The improvement to these brackets make them more comfortable to wear and they are, overall, more hygienic. This type of braces offer greater accuracy and can actually speed up treatment time. As a result, get the smile you deserve sooner!

Types of Orthodontic Appliances

When a patient comes in to get their teeth fixed, an orthodontist needs to have a variety of tools in their kit in order to help everyone’s individual situation. At Stryker Orthodontics, we use a multitude of different appliances to help us move your teeth and create the great aesthetics that will result in your final smile.

Spacers

Spacers are small elastics that fit snugly between certain teeth to move them slightly. As a result, bands can be placed around them later. They can fall out on their own if enough space has already been created. To determine if it needs to be replaced, slip some dental floss between the teeth. If it gets stuck, that means the spacer hasn’t created enough room and needs to be replaced prior to your banding appointment.

Advanced 3D Technology

iCat 3D Digital Imaging

Stryker Orthodontics is the only orthodontic office outside of Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri to have two i-CAT® Cone Beam 3D dental image systems. Root positions, impacted teeth, airways and a variety of dental anomalies are visible with this technology. We believe that 3D imaging is far superior to traditional digital 2D X-rays for diagnosis and treatment of orthodontic problems.

iTero Scanner For Invisalign

itero scanner for invisalignStryker Orthodontics is one of only a few offices in Missouri that has an iTero Scanner for Invisalign patients. The iTero Scanner takes a scan of the teeth instead of having to take impressions. With impressions, they are often uncomfortable and tend to gag some patients. However, during the iTero scanning process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. Hence, all of our patients that choose Invisalign take advantage of this new technology. We have a scanner in each of our three orthodontic offices, including Camdenton, Lebanon and Waynesville, MO! The scan allow for better-fitting aligners so treatment is more accurate. In most cases, treatment time is shorter! Better still, the scanner includes an Invisalign Outcome Simulator – this allows us to show you what your new smile could look like after braces and orthodontic treatment.

Post Orthodontic Care

post orthodontic careOne day in the not-too-distant future, your braces will come off. In a few moments, you’ll be free of bands and brackets, able to eat what you want and run your tongue over smooth, clean teeth. But, even on this happy occasion, please remember that you’re not quite done with orthodontic treatment yet: The next phase, called retention or post orthodontic care is just beginning.

Retention is a critical follow-through stage that typically involves wearing an orthodontic appliance called a retainer. Several different kinds of retainers are available, all of which are custom-made just for you. We will recommend the type (or types) that will work best in your situation, and we’ll tell you exactly when and how long you need to wear them.

Oral Hygiene

practice better oral hygiene at stryker orhtodontics in lebanon MO camdenton MO and waynesville MONow that your braces are in place, it is very important to maintain a good oral hygiene regimen throughout the length of your treatment.

Thumb & Finger Sucking

stop thumb suckingIs there any image that illustrates the comforts of babyhood better than a sleepy infant sucking its thumb? Ultrasound pictures have shown, to the joy of many prospective parents, that this behavior can even occur in the womb. The thumb- or finger-sucking habit seems to relax and comfort toddlers too, and it’s perfectly natural. Furthermore as a child grows, there comes a point where this habit isn’t just socially awkward. As a child gets older, it may also be harmful to his or her oral health. Stop thumb sucking and finger sucking with our award-winning orthodontist for habit appliances in Camdenton, Lebanon and Waynesville, Missouri (MO).

In most children, thumb sucking stops on its own between the ages of two and four years. If thumb sucking persists after the baby teeth have erupted, it can drastically change the growth patterns of the jaw. In addition, it can cause significant misalignment of the teeth. It may be hard to believe that such a benign habit can actually move teeth and bone. There are a number of reasons why this occurs.
