Dr. Glenn Krieger spent 20 years as an accomplished general dentist before going back to school to pursue his dream of becoming an orthodontist. He mentors less experienced dentists and has lectured globally for more than a decade, so you know when he’s treating you, you’re in the hands of an accomplished cosmetic dentist and orthodontist.
Dr. Krieger has attended hundreds of hours of courses specifically devoted to the aesthetics of the smile and the role that individual tooth shape and form play in producing a pleasing smile. He believes every patient deserves to have a unique smile that takes into account their specific tooth shape, the movement of their lips, and the shape of their face. This individualized approach and compilation of the aspects of dentistry play a role in what Dr. Krieger calls “smile design.”
Traditional braces are an effective and popular orthodontic option. The metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These components work together through regular adjustments to apply gentle pressure, which will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
Plano braces are a great choice for fixing many tooth issues, both simple and complex. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. Braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, which makes Plano braces an affordable orthodontic option if you’re on a budget.
The Plano Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment instead of brackets and bands. This option is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job.
Invisalign works best for mild to moderate oral problems. For certain complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Plano Orthodontics will help you find out your eligibility for Invisalign.
When you visit our office for a complimentary consultation, you’ll find that we focus on your particular orthodontic needs, as well as your specific tooth shape, the movement of your lips, and the shape of your face. Our skilled doctor and staff are great at providing customized treatment plans for each patient we see. Using these as the basis for treatment will result in a beautifully aligned smile that’s just right for your face!
