Braces can often be a dirty word when it comes to straightening your teeth. Although effective, they are cumbersome, highly noticeable and uncomfortable. This is why the office of Dr. Jeff Van Treese endorses Invisalign as an alternate method of straightening our patient’s teeth.

Invisalign consists of a pair of custom-made aligners that fit over your teeth. These clear aligning trays gently shift your teeth into place and simply need to be replaced every two weeks until your treatment is complete. Invisalign is virtually invisible and easy to remove. They are also made of comfortable plastic instead of metal so they will not irritate your mouth. For more information on Invisalign, visit their website.

Not sure if Invisalign is right for you? We are holding an Invisalign Open House in our Sidney office on March 25th. For more information, follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Panoramic X-Rays

As a dentist, I understand how important it is for the people of Shelby County to have the best possible oral health. Sometimes a simple dental check-up does not identify certain problems with your teeth such as impacted molars or TMJ disorders. This is where dental X-Rays are useful.

Since we are so dedicated to making sure the people of Sidney have access to top notch dental care with state-of-the-art technology, our office has recently invested in a new Panoramic X-Ray machine and cephalometric machine Panoramic X-Rays are a specific type of Extraoral X-Ray that is able to show the upper and lower jaw areas in a single X-Ray.

Along with detecting impactions, Panoramic X-Rays can also assist in screening for oral disease as well as tooth growth among children. During your next appointment, ask about setting up a dental X-Ray today. For more information on Dental X-Rays, head over to MouthHealthy.org.
