Dentist Orchards Orthodontics – Vancouver, WA
Orthodontics isn’t just about achieving an aesthetically straight smile. The alignment of your teeth impacts more of your overall health than you might think.
Crooked, unevenly spaced, or misaligned teeth are harder to keep clean. This makes them more prone to tooth decay and periodontal disease, which can also lead to cardiovascular or gastrointestinal problems.
Straight, properly aligned teeth are easier to keep clean and provide a more attractive appearance. A straight, healthy smile helps to boost self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-image.
If you suffer from crooked, uneven, or misaligned teeth, Today’s Dentistry in Vancouver has orthodontic treatments that can help.

The length of your orthodontic treatment will depend on your plan. During your consultation with our doctors, we will discuss your options. Once you select your treatment, we will estimate its length.
Some factors can affect the duration of your treatment. Some of these include:
- Early Orthodontic Intervention: If you had early intervention, some steps have already been completed. This may shorten the time you need for this treatment.
- Type of Treatment: Depending on your needs, you may have braces, elastics, aligners, or other options. Which treatment you receive will affect its length.
- Compliance: Following our instructions will allow your treatment to work more quickly.
At Today’s Dentistry, we offer advanced solutions for your treatment. Depending on your needs, we may recommend:
- Traditional Braces
- Ceramic Braces
- Six Month Smiles®

Invisalign® is a set of clear removable aligners that are worn over the teeth. These aligners can be removed to allow you to eat, brush, and floss normally. Invisalign® is comfortable, convenient, and easy to use.
Our dental team is pleased to provide ClearCorrect orthodontic treatments to both new and existing patients of Today’s Dentistry. If you have crowded, gapped, or misaligned teeth you may be able to achieve a healthy, beautiful smile using this non-invasive, aesthetic straightening option.
Traditional metal braces use small brackets that are affixed to your teeth to hold thin wires in place. These wires are minutely adjusted over time to gently guide teeth into the proper placement and alignment within your mouth. Although braces don’t hurt, in the first couple days after getting braces you may feel a slight discomfort as your teeth and mouth begin adjusting to your new braces.
