Conventional Orthodontic Treatment
If you are an adult with minor dental problems who has decided to go after a straighter and more attractive smile, Dr. McMillen offers the best in braces and other traditional orthodontic treatments. Braces are a great way to correct overcrowded teeth, incorrect bites, or teeth that are protruding or crooked. Adults can benefit from braces just like children can. You can realign your teeth so that they appear the way you want them to, and correct other issues like a bad bite or gaps between the teeth. Dr. McMillen offers both traditional metal braces as well as Invisalign. Adults will find that braces can give them an improved appearance and more confidence. It is always preferable to repair dental issues earlier rather than later so that they do not worsen over time.
Functional Jaw Orthopedics
For those adults hoping to effectively correct their teeth, their jaw, and their facial muscles, Dr. McMillen also provides Functional Jaw Orthopedics, or FJO. FJO is a progressive treatment used to correct issues like mouth breathing, overbites, underbites, and more. Functional Jaw Orthopedics will improve the health of your temporomandibular joint. At the same time, FJO also works to straighten your teeth and improve your smile.
FJO works in two phases. First, your dentist will give you a removable or fixed orthopedic appliance that will gradually move your bone. This appliances are usually used to expand your arch and give your teeth more room so that they can be properly aligned. For the second phase of the treatment, conventional orthodontic treatments are used to polish and perfect your smile.
