Orthodontist Treatments Columbus Ohio
The Best Orthodontic Treatment in Columbus, Ohio
At our practice, we know that every patient is different, and every set of teeth is unique.
We’re proud to offer the most advanced treatment options so patients can experience comfortable orthodontic care while achieving optimal results. During your consultation in our Columbus office, Dr. J. Lawrence Hutta will help you decide which option is right for you. Whether our experts use Damon Braces, InsigniaTM Braces, our custom printed aligners, or Invisalign®, we will be there with you every step of your journey to ensure a smooth treatment and beautiful results.
Braces Treatment Options
Braces are the most well-known tool in orthodontics and for good reason.
But did you know that there are many different kinds of braces? Every smile is unique and deserves a treatment plan fitting for the individual. That’s why we offer the best braces technology and services in orthodontics: Insignia and Damon.
Damon Braces use innovative orthodontic technology, which eliminates the need for less hygienic elastics or metal ties and the painful process of tightening. Their simple yet durable design means fewer adjustments with Dr. J. Lawrence Hutta, fewer trips into our office, and a faster treatment process. In addition to metal, you can also choose clear brackets (perfect for adults!), which blend into teeth for a more discreet look.
Insignia Braces offer an advanced, entirely customizable approach to orthodontics. Using Insignia’s high-tech scanning and design software, we will create an orthodontic treatment plan—with completely customized appliances for each tooth. Because the equipment is designed to fit your teeth specifically, treatment with Insignia Braces is faster and more precise.
Clear Aligners: Custom, 3D-Printed and Invisalign Aligners
Clear aligners are an increasingly common orthodontic choice.
Brands like Invisalign clear aligners are popular with adults. The nearly invisible series of aligners are virtually undetectable when you talk, smile, and take photos. Aligners are also easy to take off, so you can enjoy all foods or gum—just take care to practice excellent oral hygiene. Here at Hutta Orthodontic Specialists, we offer clear aligner options, including custom, 3D-printed aligners and Invisalign.
How Aligners Shift Your Teeth
After being scanned, patients will receive several sets of our 3D-printed or Invisalign trays. Week by week and tray by tray, teeth shift into place until you have a beautifully aligned smile. Aligners are created using 3D imaging technology, so the appliances fit your teeth comfortably and perfectly. There are no cookie-cutter treatments here. Though every patient is different, you’ll likely notice your teeth beginning to shift after just a month or two.
Treatment for Adults
When it comes to orthodontic treatment and services, there is a misconception that braces are only for kids.
Luckily, adults can benefit from orthodontics, too. No matter your age, orthodontics can deliver a beautifully aligned set of teeth that make you look and feel good. We’re pleased to offer options that fit easily into your busy adult lifestyle—including braces and clear aligners, like Invisalign. Whether you enjoy a Damon Braces clear smile or Invisalign, our team will give you a comfortable, discreet journey.
Clear aligners, like our 3D-printed option and Invisalign, are another great choice for adults seeking minor to medium orthodontic treatment. If you are worried about your orthodontic appliances, using clear aligners makes treatment discreet and allows you to cut out temporary food restrictions and lifestyle changes associated with braces. There’s nothing stopping you from achieving your dream smile.
Braces for Adults
With Insignia and Damon Braces, we can offer precise, expedited treatment that easily translates to a busy adult life. The entirely customized nature of Insignia appliances means that patients experience fast and comfortable treatment. Integrating with Damon Braces (metal or clear), self-ligating technology means fewer trips into the office, which is ideal for adults. Be sure to ask our team about clear brackets for a more discreet look.
Services for Children
While it is never too late to see an orthodontist, addressing orthodontic and dental issues while a child is still growing is the most effective way to treat problems.
With early screenings, Dr. J. Lawrence Hutta can detect and prevent further issues, like tooth extractions later in life. That is why it is vital to bring children in for a consultation by the age of 7, or earlier if they begin experiencing pain or issues with their jaw and teeth.
Keeping Children Comfortable with Orthodontics
For young children, any new office visit can feel intimidating, with the field of dentistry being particularly infamous. Here at Hutta Orthodontic Specialists in Columbus, Ohio, we strive to ensure that your child feels comfortable and excited to come into our office for services. With fun contests, a patient reward program, and community events, we encourage orthodontic enthusiasm and understanding in our young patients.
Orthodontics and Your Dental Health
Orthodontics can certainly help achieve aesthetic goals, but expert care goes far beyond cosmetic benefits. Orthodontics align teeth, improve oral hygiene, and can reduce pain. For instance, a misaligned bite may lead to bruxism, also known as teeth grinding. Over time, bruxism wears down enamel or may lead to cracks and chips, requiring further dental treatment. This also puts pressure on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Extra pressure can cause inflammation, pain, and tension headaches. It may develop into temporomandibular disorder (TMD), a painful condition associated with discomfort, popping jawbones, headaches, difficulty chewing, earaches, joint pain, and more.
This is where orthodontics comes in. With braces or aligners, Dr. J. Lawrence Hutta brings the teeth, bite, and jawbones into harmony, improving the health and function of the entire mouth.
