Both adults and children residing in South Atlanta and Newnan, GA, should give us a call today to learn more about orthodontics treatments from Dr. Galbo, including Invisalign®, and let him help you or your loved one enjoy improved oral health.

What Is Orthodontics?

Your teeth are specifically designed for your bone structure, facial anatomy, and oral cavity, but sometimes due to a variety of different factors, teeth need to be straightened to repair, restore and promote your smile. The goal of the specialty dental care of orthodontics is to help and promote your overall oral health while enhancing and improving your bite. Dr. Galbo also helps patients address growth-connected issues related to your facial and jaw structures. Contact us now if you or a loved one have orthodontic issues that Dr. Galbo may be able to help you with, including crooked and poorly aligned teeth, undue wear on your teeth, gaps and unusual spacing between your teeth or any issues related to problems speaking or eating that may be caused by your teeth, jaw or other facial structures.

Benefits of Orthodontics

If you have crooked or gapped teeth, misalignment of your teeth and gums, worn teeth or a lack of structural balance, then you might hide your smile from others. In addition, these issues can increase your risk of suffering severe problems to your overall oral health due to the increased tendency of plaque and harmful bacteria that can linger between gaps where they can’t be reached. Those very same issues can also potentially cause speech or chewing problems. All of these issues can be addressed by making the call to Dr. Galbo and scheduling your orthodontic consultation to find out exactly what the benefits of orthodontics will be for you or your loved one.

What Kinds of Braces Are Available?

Improving a smile and addressing both aesthetic and oral health issues can be addressed by a variety of different types of braces. Dr. Galbo is knowledgeable on the key components of pediatric dental care for kids, and he often recommends stainless steel traditional metal braces that attach to the front of the teeth as the best option for children. In addition, we also offer the following type of braces:

  • Invisalign®
  • ClearCorrect™
  • Simpli5™
  • Six Month Smiles®

While traditional metal braces are ideal for kids, as children get older they can develop their own preferences, and Invisalign® may be the ideal solution for teenagers who are more self-conscious about their appearance and who prefer clear braces to metal braces. For those younger patients in need of orthodontics who do not want the traditional wire and metal braces, the Invisalign® clear braces system with removable aligners are a perfect choice.

Many adults also prefer clear braces to the use of the more economical traditional metal braces, if orthodontic treatment is necessary. That’s why Dr. Galbo offers the widest array of choices of any orthodontics facility when it comes to your options for clear braces, including ClearCorrect™ and Simpli5™ invisible aligners, which enable you to discretely hide your braces.

Preparing for Orthodontics

The most important step you can take in preparing for your orthodontics is scheduling your consultation now with Dr. Galbo and taking the first step in addressing any issue you may have, including gaps between your teeth or crooked teeth. Once you’ve scheduled your consultation, think about your personal preferences in terms of braces so that together you and Dr. Galbo can make the choice that’s right for you.

Recovery from Orthodontics

During the first few days of your recovery from orthodontics, you may experience some mild aching and discomfort, which can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication. In addition, you may feel a bit uncomfortable at times, particularly in the first few weeks as you adjust and become accustomed to your new braces or other orthodontic devices. For instance, in the case of traditional braces, the wires may irritate your cheeks and tongue, so you will need to be mindful when you are eating, drinking and talking, at least until you become used to them. Of course with practice and time, the subtle adjustments that you may need to make while speaking or chewing to adapt to your new braces will eventually become second nature and automatic. Additionally, if a particular band or wire seems to cause continual discomfort, then we can address that issue during a follow-up visit.

Dr. Galbo is committed to helping all of his patients attain ideal oral health if orthodontic procedures are required. We request payment at the time of service.
