The Treatment Philosophy of Your Three Rivers Orthodontist, Bandeen Orthodontics

Bandeen Orthodontics, the premier Three Rivers orthodontist, has found that by waiting to begin treatment until age twelve or older – that is when baby teeth are gone and adult teeth have erupted – we can accomplish the same or better outcomes with less effort and less cost for a large majority of our patients. Of course, there are some cases where early treatment is necessary, which is why treatment is determined on a case by case basis.

You may be surprised to hear that treatment times at Bandeen Orthodontics are only a year to eighteen months with only twenty percent of our patients requiring treatment that’s longer than eighteen months. We achieve these shortened treatment times by using Damon™ System braces and Insignia™ Advanced Smile Design™, two of the most advanced and effective methods of treatment. It’s also important to understand that we never rush treatment. Our treatment times are short because of our extensive experience, knowledge, and use of the latest technologies.

We use Insignia™ because it allows us to use computers to accurately visualize the end goals of treatment and then reverse engineer the process to create an optimal, unique, and superior treatment result for your teeth and smile. We are also able to use computer modeling in order to properly place braces virtually as well ask making customized wires. This translates to doing your treatment virtually first to see how it should go before beginning the orthodontic treatment on your actual teeth!

One of the main things that makes Damon™ System braces the best choice for your orthodontic care is that you no longer need rapid palatal expanders as part of your treatment. We will provide expansion of the dental arches when necessary, but there are better ways to expand than with outdated technology. If you have been told by another Three Rivers orthodontist that palatal expansion is necessary to meet your desired treatment outcomes, please contact us so that we can show you how expansion can be achieved in a noninvasive way.
