Orthodontic Solution

Orthodontic Solutions

Orthodontic treatment involves straightening crooked or misaligned teeth and correcting bite issues. The most common orthodontic issues treated by our dentist in Greenbelt, MD, include malocclusion, overbite, underbite, overcrowding, spacing, crossbite, and open bite.

Here are some of the orthodontic solutions we offer at Wynn Dental Wellness:


Invisalign is an excellent solution for teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth without the obvious look of traditional braces. The clear aligners look similar to retainers or mouth guards but are custom-made to fit the patient’s unique smile. 

Patients simply need to wear the aligner for a certain amount of time each day before switching to the next one in the series. Over time, the aligners move the teeth, making minor adjustments until the teeth are in their proper place. 

Most patients complete their treatment in less than a year. With Invisalign’s advanced technology, you can see the difference the treatment will make before you even start it.

Many patients find that Invisalign is a much better option because it offers so much more flexibility when it comes to diet and lifestyle habits. With these aligners, you can brush and floss your teeth as you normally would and easily remove your trays as needed. Additionally, you can remove your aligners to eat and drink, so you don’t have to worry about dietary restrictions.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are typically made from stainless steel or titanium and consist of brackets glued to the front of each tooth and metal wires. These wires connect all the brackets together, moving the teeth and causing gradual alignment. 

Traditional braces are the most common type of orthodontic solution due to their effectiveness. They are also the most affordable option. 

More modern archwires now have varying thicknesses for different parts of the mouth. This allows for lighter forces to be applied where needed and more comfort for the patient. Back molars require more force to move the teeth. 

Patients can also choose gold alloys or other alloys for their braces. They can be silver, yellow, or a combination of these colors. Brackets can be clear, white, gold, or stainless steel. Plastic clips can be used to secure the archwire to the braces and rubber bands may be used around the brackets to secure the archwire in place. 

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are another option for aligning your teeth and bite without anyone else knowing. Our dentist in Greenbelt, MD, will bond custom-made brackets to the backs of your upper and lower teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, lingual braces are completely hidden from view. Therefore, no one will notice that you are straightening your smile unless you tell them.


Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, our dentist in Greenbelt, MD, may recommend wearing a retainer to keep your teeth in their new positions. This will prevent any potential relapse after your braces are removed. 

Of course, it is important that you continue to brush and floss regularly to maintain good oral hygiene while you wear your orthodontic appliances. The last thing you want is to develop cavities in between your teeth during your orthodontic treatment. With proper care and regular appointments with our dentist in Greenbelt, MD, you can look forward to a straighter smile and improved oral health.
