How nice would it be to know that your general dentist can also provide orthodontics for the whole family? Well then, come to Highland Village Family Dentistry and say hello to Dr. Ryan Thomas. In addition to earning his DDS from New York University School of Dentistry, he has also logged hundred of hours of training in orthodontics with Invisalign® and Progressive Orthodontics Seminars. Dr. Thomas and his team help teenagers and adults enjoy the health and aesthetic benefits of a straight smile.
Straight Smile, Healthy Smile
When teeth are misaligned, they are harder to keep clean. Brushing a flossing can present a challenge if you have to maneuver around and in between crooked and over crowded teeth. Likewise, malocclusions such as overbites, underbites, crossbites and openbites can make your mouth more susceptible to problems such as gum disease, tooth decay and cavities and even tooth loss.
Braces Highland Village Smiles About
Dr. Thomas provides both traditional orthodontics and Invisalign®. Our traditional orthodontics for Flower Mound are on the cutting-edge of technology. We give our patients all-digital orthodontics. These braces use state-of-the-art digital technology to design and fabricate wires that are specific to your orthodontic needs. With wires made just for you, your orthodontic treatment may be faster and have better results.
Invisalign in Lewisville
For our adult patients who want the advantages of orthodontic treatment without the appearance of braces, Dr. Thomas offers Invisalign. This orthodontic system uses clear plastic aligners to move your teeth. With the aid of impressions, digital photographs and x-rays, Dr. Thomas creates a treatment plan and then works closely with technicians at the Invisalign lab to develop your aligners.
There are typically between 20 and 30 sets of aligners in a complete treatment set. All you have to do is wear each pair for approximately two weeks and then move on to the next pair in the series. Each pair builds on the progress of the previous aligners until your straight smile is looking back at you in the mirror. And because your Invisalign clear braces are removable, you can eat your usual diet and maintain your regular at-home oral hygiene routine.
