Orthodontics Cedar Park, TXDr. Gerhardt, located in in Cedar Park, TX, is a General Dentist who can straighten your teeth for a huge financial savings over going to an orthodontic specialist. Dr. Gerhardt has been providing comprehensive orthodontic care to our patients since 1996. We have set-up our practice in a unique and effective way that allows us to offer our patients a one-stop-shop for all of their dental needs while still supporting private practice, local dentistry.
There are several different orthodontic options including metal or clear brackets, Invisalign®, Clear Correct and Active Retainers.
Metal and clear brackets are one of the more forgiving styles of orthodontic gear. Although this method does not provide the most aesthetically pleasing option, they can be the most comfortable and effective. Because they can be adjusted and tweaked with precision, they are able to offer patients a less painful or irritating experience.
Invisalign® is a great option for those who rely heavily on their smile and don’t want the appearance of braces getting in the way. With Invisalign® we take an impression of your teeth, and then create a series of clear, plastic trays that will gradually shift your teeth into the correct position. The amount of time and trays that you require to straighten your teeth with Invisalign® will depend entirely on how much of a change you are looking to accomplish in your smile. The best part is, no one will know that you are having your teeth straightened!
ClearCorrect aligners function using the same concept as Invisalign®, that is, a series of clear, plastic trays that straighten your teeth gradually. They are generally a less expensive orthodontic option than Invisalign® and produce similar results!
Active retainers give us the ability to make minor adjustments to one or two teeth at a time. When full orthodontic work isn’t required but you still need a tooth or two moved into place, we can offer you a much more cost effective solution with active retainers.
Dr. Gerhardt teaches a 2-year, hands-on orthodontic class for licensed dentists. He also lectures at orthodontic conventions throughout the United States and has published several articles on the subject.
When it comes to your kid’s teeth we like to err on the side of detecting issues before they happen so that we can act early and avoid big problems down the road. When you bring your child in to our office for their biannual cleaning and examination we will check on the progress of their adult teeth and even their wisdom teeth to ensure that they are coming in straight. If they need to be altered using orthodonture, we will know ahead of time and will have a plan setup to deal with the issue. Peace of mind is one of the most valuable services that we provide to our patients here at Advanced Family Dentistry & Braces.
