Say Goodbye to Crooked Teeth With St. Louis Orthodontics
When people ask me about orthodontic straightening their teeth, there are two big reasons for it, but they're both very important and they're important to every single person. One is cosmetics, and we never discount that because we want people to feel good about smiling. Two is function, and our teeth were designed to function in a certain way, and when they're not aligned for that, things go wrong.
I was one of the first classes for Invisalign, the way that you straighten teeth without the bands and brackets, way back when they started letting general dentists doing it. I like it. It's proven and it works. The other way, and this is new for our practice, and that's called Fastbraces. Fastbraces I have a little bit more control over. They look like traditional braces, because they are, but with the newer technology, so they have new bracket designs, which allows us to do what's crazy – some cases in about six months.
It works and it works in such a way to where it takes away extraction cases. We're not having people in the bands and brackets as long as they used to be, not anywhere near it. They can have clear brackets, and now they're even coming out with a new-and-improved bracket, which, in some cases, is going to be new and improved for the patient. It's going to make it even faster. They don't make it faster because they place more pressure. That's the first question I get. They make it faster because the bracket's design is just more efficient.
So, when you can offer that to people and Invisalign if they absolutely don't want bands and brackets, you get a slam dunk, and who wouldn't want to have a more confident smile, but also from the geek general dentist, who wouldn't want to have teeth that function better, that aren't breaking, that don't need root canals? And again, the last thing in the world you want is joint surgery because of a bad bite or the headaches that go along with that that lead you to the joint surgery.

Enjoy Straight Teeth Soon With Our Expert Treatment
At The DentaLink, we offer you two great orthodontic solutions for getting straight teeth. Dr. Link and our team will help you decide which one works best for you.
For more than two decades patients have loved orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. Its system of clear plastic teeth aligners has revolutionized the way people think about straightening their teeth.
The smooth aligners fit comfortably over your teeth to gently move them into their correct positions. All you have to do is wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day (you can remove them for eating, brushing your teeth, or a special occasion). In as few as 12 months, you could have your beautiful, straight smile. And since the aligners are transparent, they offer you discreet treatment without a mouthful of metal!
For even quicker orthodontic care, choose Fastbraces. This innovative system uses special triangular brackets and a heat-activated wire to straighten your teeth roots and crowns (the white part above the gumline) at the same time. Traditional braces work on the roots and crowns in separate phases, resulting in longer treatment. With Fastbraces, you could complete your treatment in only three to four months – not two or three years!
Fastbraces treatment is more comfortable than regular braces, plus it can often prevent the need for teeth extractions prior to treatment. Both teens and adults love all of the benefits of Fastbraces.
