How Orthodontics Impacts Your Health & Your Smile
Wright Dental offers orthodontics treatments in Bryant suitable for patients and family members of all ages. Orthodontics is an area of dentistry concerned with the alignment of teeth. Teeth crowding together or moving apart to form gaps are common orthodontic problems that patients may need to address in order to restore confidence in their smile. Beyond appearance, however, untreated gaps and crowding can negatively impact the proper function of your teeth and the efficacy of brushing at home. Without intervention, these conditions can increase the potential for gum disease and tooth decay to set in.
Correcting "Bad Bites"
Another problem with teeth alignment that Wright Dental can address is malocclusion, or a “bad bite.” This condition can be an underbite, overbite, or crossbite. No matter the case, each comes with the risk of consequences to your oral health and quality of life reaching beyond cosmetic aesthetics. Our Bryant orthodontic practice at Wright Dental can help you address teeth misalignment not just to improve how you feel about your smile, but improve its health, too.
Orthodontic treatments, such as braces, begin with taking an impression of your mouth. Some providers are limited to traditional material-based impressions, but patients at Wright Dental can have a digital impression taken of their mouths using sophisticated imaging devices and software.
The following and more are some benefits of taking a digital impression:
- Minimal chair time for three- to five-minute scans
- No impression material means no foul taste or gag reflex
- More accurate impressions, which lead to better-fitting restorative devices
- Digital impressions can be easily stored for future reference

While Wright Dental offers traditional metal braces, some patients – especially those beyond their young-adult years – might prefer to straighten their teeth using a less noticeable approach. Rather than wires and brackets, ClearCorrect™ uses clear, removable aligner trays molded to align your teeth with comfort and discretion in mind.
