Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that is concerned with straightening and aligning your family’s teeth. For decades, adolescents and teens have been wearing braces to create healthy, straight and beautiful smiles. In more recent years, adults have chosen to straighten their smiles if they were not afforded that opportunity in their youth. Dr. Cory Gaunt is an accomplished orthodontic dentist who offers teen and adult orthodontics at Downriver Smiles, located in Western Spokane, WA.
Straight and perfectly aligned teeth are not only more attractive, but they are also easier to keep clean and healthy. Brushing and flossing are more effective because there are no overlapping teeth and fewer harder-to-reach places. Professional cleanings are also easier, as all the teeth are lined up evenly without breaks, gaps, overlaps and other problems.
Overlapping, crooked and otherwise problematic smiles are more prone to develop gum diseases, dental caries and other oral health complications. Professional orthodontics in Spokane for adults and teens is an investment in ongoing dental health, as well as in a beautiful smile. Dr. Gaunt is always willing to discuss orthodontic treatment with patients at Downriver Smiles.
Clear Orthodontic Aligners & More
Many teens and adults are choosing to undergo orthodontic treatment now more than ever, due to the advanced options that are now available. While traditional metal braces are still used extensively in orthodontics, newer options using clear aligners are more discreet and offer a less invasive method of straightening your smile.
At Downriver Smiles in Spokane, we offer the very latest, state-of-the-art options in braces and clear aligners to straighten adult and teen smiles, including:
The popular Invisalign® brand introduced clear aligners to straighten teeth with fewer restrictions and inconveniences than metal braces. Downriver Smiles is an authorized Invisalign orthodontic clinic, and we can even show you a projected view of your straightened smile using the Invisalign software. We also offer a more affordable option in clear braces and Six-Month Smiles.
