Incentives & Encouragement
We understand that wearing Invisalign or braces requires discipline and can be challenging, especially for our younger patients. That is why we encourage our patients to follow the care requirements of their treatment through two incentive programs:
- Serve & Save: This program can benefit both you and our community as patients can volunteer at a pre-approved local organization to earn a discount on their treatment.
- Ortho Bucks: When our patients properly care for their braces, keep their appointments, or achieve one of our other qualifiers, they can earn Ortho Bucks that can be redeemed for prizes such as gift cards.
Our Orthodontic Treatments
To accommodate patients of all ages and needs, Mountain View Dental offers three types of orthodontic treatment:
Invisalign uses customized clear plastic trays that are changed about every two weeks to shift teeth into position. These removable aligners offer patients many advantages including:
- Discreet treatment
- Fewer office visits
- Freedom to eat any foods they choose
- Easy brushing and flossing
However, Invisalign is not the best solution for every patient. It is typically recommended for mild to moderate misalignment.
We often recommend traditional braces for patients with more complex issues such as severely rotated or angled teeth. Brackets and wires are attached to the teeth to apply gentle pressure, guiding teeth into proper alignment.
We work with a trusted local orthodontist who comes into our office twice per month to provide all orthodontic treatments.
Phase I is an early orthodontic treatment that is provided to pediatric patients when there is concern regarding the growth and development of the teeth and jaws. Parents may also consider this treatment if their children feel self-conscious due to a condition such as upper protrusion, commonly known as buck teeth.
