Orthodontics Green Bay, WI
Orthodontics has come a long way in terms of options and medical advances. What used to be a market dominated by teens that had problems with their bite has now shifted to a market where nearly 30 percent of all orthodontic patients in the US are adults. Orthodontics often had the connotation of being a treatment that would make an adult look immature but today’s orthodontics are designed to be nearly invisible and use advanced technologies that have drastically minimized their treatment times.
Orthodontics are used to correct malocclusions, otherwise known as a bad bite. This was often something that was corrected because it interfered with eating and speaking and was thus considered to only be a restorative treatment. But a malocclusion can also interfere with the development of a well-aligned, beautiful smile and orthodontics can also be considered a cosmetic treatment.
Modern Orthodontics in Green Bay
At Dental Designs by Quandt much of our focus is on cosmetic dentistry. As there has been a shift in orthodontics towards adults and teens who are seeking less visible treatments and quicker treatment times, we have been quick to adapt and have begun to offer a new orthodontic technology that reflects this – Six Month Smiles.
What Is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a newer orthodontic technology that concentrates on the aesthetic portions of your smile. The treatment takes on average only six months and is an ideal treatment for patients who are looking to improve their smiles but are not in need of more extensive orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign in Green Bay
We are also pleased to offer Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign are removable and are the preferred solution for adults and teens seeking to maintain a mature appearance while straightening their teeth. Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, plastic aligners that are replaced at biweekly intervals to safely and effectively straighten your teeth and improve your bite. As the aligners are made of clear plastic, no one will even notice that you are wearing them. Only you and your dentist will actually know that you are working to have your teeth straightened.

Orthodontics for Children, Teens and Adults
Ortho for Children
It is recommended that children seek an orthodontic evaluation by age seven to determine if orthodontic treatment is required and when is the best time for that patient to be treated. When orthodontics is started early they can often influence the growth of the jaw and guide incoming permanent teeth and reduce the future likelihood of additional treatments.
Ortho for Teens
Most orthodontic treatment takes place during the teen years as all the permanent teeth have fully erupted. The other benefit to having orthodontics done during the teens years is that many teens are beginning to become more concerned with the appearance of their smile and orthodontics can assist in aesthetics as well as proper alignment.
Ortho for Adults
Orthodontics can be successful at any age and adults can also enjoy the benefits of a healthy smile. Our office recommends Six Month Smiles and Invisalign for adult orthodontics as these both are designed to be as invisible as possible.
