What is comprehensive treatment?
Comprehensive treatment treats both the upper and lower arch and addresses malocclusions (teeth not properly aligned, incorrect bite) by properly aligning the teeth and improving the bite.
Our office follows active treatment with a 12 month supervised retention period. Patients are required to wear their retainers full time until Dr. Schratz recommends going to part-time wear, which involves wearing the retainer just at night.
We offer the most innovative treatments available today:
Self Ligation Brackets
Clear brackets – aesthetic archwires
Clear aligner treatments (Invisalign and Clear Correct)
What is Invisalign and Clear Correct?
Method of correction using clear trays rather than braces
Worn 22-24 hours/day
