What can Mary Lo do for me?
Alongside her specialist fields of study, Mary Lo is also accredited to deliver several cosmetic orthodontic treatments. These are specialised alternative orthodontic methods which are specifically designed to have a minimal impact on how patients look. Some of these methods, which Mary Lo regularly provides her patients with, include the Invisalign removable retainer system and lingual brackets.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an alternative, cosmetic orthodontic treatment which doesn't require anything to be attached to the patient's teeth. Rather, the entire process of shifting the patient's teeth into their correct alignment is carried out through a single, removable plastic retainer. These retainers are transparent and wafer-thin, and each one is uniquely crafted from an impression of the patient's tooth shape. Therefore, when it is worn it becomes entirely invisible, and comfortably applies pressure to the out-of-place teeth through built-in pressure points.
What are lingual braces?
Another cosmetic orthodontic treatment which Mary Lo is more than capable of providing to patients who require it, fundamentally, lingual braces are similar to conventional braces in that brackets and tension wires are used to pull the patient's teeth together over time. However, the defining difference is that lingual braces are attached to the backs of the patient's teeth and therefore are obstructed from view. Anyone who is looking to effectively and swiftly realign a crooked smile, but doesn't want to impact on how they look during treatment, ought to arrange a consultation with Mary Lo and see what cosmetic orthodontic options are available. By doing so you can rest assured that Mary Lo will do all that is within her extensive powers to design a solution to your orthodontic problems and set you on a path towards a healthier, brighter dental future.
