Orthodontics

Teeth-alignment problems are not only a cosmetic concern — they can also lead to oral- and whole health-related issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, difficulty chewing, and chronic headaches. At Robinson Dental, Lynnwood dentist Dr. Brent Robinson detects potential alignment issues as early as possible in order to best protect your overall health and quality of life, then identifies the best orthodontic solution to treat it.

What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that corrects a vast array of dental conditions such as crowding, protruding/poorly spaced teeth, overbites, underbites, and other misalignments. Like an orthodontist, Dr. Brent Robinson has extensive experience realigning crooked, overlapping, and gapped teeth using orthodontics, and he can prevent potentially serious problems from occurring. This allows the patient to receive convenient treatment from their dentist and potentially avoid the inconvenience of having to be referred to an orthodontist.

Robinson Dental’s Orthodontics

The term “orthodontics” most likely evokes images of silver and gray wired braces attached to a teenager’s teeth, along with an endless number of trips to the orthodontist. But modern-day orthodontics allow us to provide some teeth-straightening orthodontic treatments — most of which are clear or nearly invisible — along with routine, restorative, and cosmetic care. Our orthodontic treatments include:

  • Six Month Smiles®: Clear braces that allow you to achieve a straighter smile in only six months
  • Invisalign®: A series of clear, removable aligners that straighten your teeth over the course of 12 months

FAQ

How long does it take to straighten teeth?
At Robinson Dental, we have many teeth-straightening solutions available for patients of all ages, including solutions that are nearly invisible and can significantly change your alignment in as little as six months. The time it will take to straighten your teeth largely depends on the severity of your condition.
What are invisible braces?
Like an orthodontist, we are able to straighten your smile with tooth-straightening systems that are nearly invisible, such as Six Month Smiles and Invisalign. Both of these systems use clear materials (i.e., clear brackets and wiring, and removable aligners) that are discreet and comfortable.
Does everyone need braces?
No. Only patients with misalignment problems need to wear braces. The best way to find out if you or your child will need braces is to call and set up an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Brent Robinson.

COVID-19 UPDATE

On March 19, Gov. Jay Inslee announced new restrictions on non-urgent medical and dental procedures so we can do our part to limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, and free up our protective equipment. The order applies to any non-urgent procedure that requires medical and dental. From now until May 18, 2020, all dental offices in Washington State must limit care to emergency treatment, including our practice. 


Please note that effective March 23rd, all elective dental appointments, including cleanings, between now and May 18th will need to be rescheduled. Please wait for our team to reach out to reschedule your appointment. Emergency care is any condition that, if delayed, is anticipated to cause harm to the patient within the next three months. Our goal is to see the fewest patients, keep you safe, pain-free, and healthy. If you are unsure if you have a true emergency please call Kelsey or Tamara at 425-778-1164 for help.


Thanks,
