Chronic Health Conditions & Extra Dental Care [2019 FACTS]

Children with long-term health issues require special care.

Gorton & Schmohl Orthodontics Achieve Invisalign Diamond Provider Designation [Press Release]

Taking Invisalign to the Highest Level: Gorton & Schmohl Orthodontics Leads Marin County in achieving Diamond Provider designation for Invisalign Clear Aligner Treatment

Larkspur, CA – A beautiful smile not only accentuates the beauty of an individual but also represents the oral health consciousness of that individual. At Gorton & Schmohl Orthodontics, the doctors are board-certified in the orthodontic specialty of moving teeth and they apply this knowledge to careful treatment planning of both their braces and clear aligner patients. While all treatment modalities are based on the biology of tooth movement, each orthodontic “tool” available to the doctor has its own unique functionality which must be learned in order to achieve an optimal result.

Learn How to Smile Again

If you have forgotten how to smile because you are embarrassed by your crooked teeth, then it is time to visit an orthodontist. It is easy to have a new smile by undergoing orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign. In six months to three years, you can have an attractive smile again. Clear aligners are suitable for you when you have mild malocclusions. Alternatively, if you have severely misaligned teeth or when you are a child, then you can wear braces instead. Today, you don’t have to wear traditional metal orthodontic devices because there are devices that have color-matching ceramic brackets.

Have an Orthodontic Examination

When you are wearing aligners on your teeth, the items are barely noticeable when you smile, and if you select color-matching brackets or lingual devices, then it is also difficult for someone to notice the items. You can continue to smile at everyone without feeling self-conscious. The only way to know what type of orthodontic treatment is best for your teeth is by having a thorough examination from an orthodontist. With modern medical images, it is possible to see how your teeth and smile will look after orthodontic treatment is completed.
