Traditional Braces

Traditional braces provide many benefits to our patients. They work continuously, 24 hours a day, meaning patients do not need to worry about keeping them in for a certain amount of time or replacing them with the next in a set.

They provide the most precise alignment option available, and with advanced technology we can make them more stylish than ever before. While contemporary braces are metallic colored, there are a number of bands and features that we can utilize to spice them up. Many kids choose multicolored bands to express their individual sense of style and fun. Best of all, traditional braces cost much less than the popular clear aligners!

Six Month Smiles / Short Term Orthodontics

Six Month Smiles uses clear braces to straighten your teeth in about 6 months! Six Month Smiles is a great option for adults who want straight teeth in less time. It's also a great alternative to invisalign or Clear Aligners.

You can expect the same visual results from Six Month Smiles as you would from traditional orthodontics or aligner systems. Front teeth are physically repositioned into proper alignment, making the patient’s smile look more appealing. Straight teeth are also easier to brush, floss, and keep clean than crowded, overlapping teeth. The most obvious and pleasant result of Six Month Smiles is a boost in the patient’s self-confidence, due to being viewed by others as more attractive.

Clear Correct / Invisalign

Both Invisalign and ClearCorrect are orthodontic treatment options that feature completely clear, totally comfortable acrylic aligners. Each aligner is custom-made to shift teeth closer and closer to their final, ideal placement. Wear an aligner for two weeks, then throw it away and move to the next in your series.

One of the major drawbacks to orthodontics is that they require constant wear. The brackets are actually cemented to teeth, and wires exert force 24/7 to pull teeth into alignment. With Invisalign or ClearCorrect, no features are affixed to teeth. The aligners are completely free moving, so you can take them in and out at your own discretion. To remain in compliance with your treatment plan, you’ll need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day. You can remove them to eat a meal, attend a special event, and clean your teeth.

To find out whether Invisalign or ClearCorrect is right for you, call Dr. Haack in Alexandria today at 320-763-7484 and schedule a consultation.

Early Orthodontics/Phase 1

Does your child have crowded teeth or does he or she always breathe through their mouth instead of their nose?  A common problem for kids, especially in this country, is having a narrow upper jaw.  The narrowness of the jaw causes crowded teeth and may be secondary to an airway issue.

A palatal expander is an orthodontic appliance that fits up to the roof of your mouth.    It is used to widen the upper jaw and create the space needed for the upper and lower teeth to fit together.  Different types of expanders are placed depending on the amount of crowding and age of the patient.  It is most often followed by braces to straighten out all the teeth.
