Welcome to the Lapalco Family Dental blog. We are your trusted source for dentistry solutions in Marrero, Louisiana.
Basically, what makes us unique is that we are a one stop shopping site when it comes to dental solutions. We do some orthodontics, we do implants, we replace teeth, crown and bridge, and it’s always the same doctor.
Some of the new clinics that are popping up all over the place, you might see one doctor one time, another doctor the next time. There’s no continuity of treatment. With us, you’re getting thirty-two years of experience every time you walk through the door there’s only one doctor here.
One of our favorite things to do is help adults who have given up. Not on life! But rather, they have given up hope of ever transforming their crooked, crowded, or gapped collection of teeth. They assume that it is impossible to do anything about their issues now that they are all grown-up. To that, we say, anything is possible! ANd we are poised to make the unthinkable happen for you!
We can get you a better smile at any age through a forward-looking technique known as ClearCorrect. We like to tell our patients that ClearCorrect is a new approach to an old problem. ClearCorrect braces tackle the problem differently by moving your teeth through a series of transitional stages, each one getting you closer to your desired results.
This system truly expanded the opportunities for orthodontics in the modern era. ClearCorrect is perfect for older teenagers, college students, working professionals, parents and anyone who wants a discreet way to straighten their teeth. Maybe it will be the perfect solution for you, too!
How Does It Work?
During your appointment, we will scan your mouth and take photos and impressions of your teeth. The images are sent to ClearCorrect company that creates a 3D model of your current teeth and teeth after treatment, including the stages in between. ClearCorrect will use the models to create a series of custom plastic aligners that are ready to be worn in a few days.
Then you’ll just switch them out on your own every two weeks instead of coming in for monthly hardware adjustments!
Rather than making use of stark metal wires and brackets, ClearCorrect aligners are made of a gentle yet durable plastic that feels natural on your gums, cheeks and tongue. And the good news is that they won’t be noticed by outsiders. So, no unwanted questions or comments will be aimed at you,
These smooth, comfortable aligners are also removable, which means that your eating habits won’t have to be modified. And cleaning your gear is as simple as rinsing the aligners under warm water!
In our experience, we have found ClearCorrect to be safe, subtle, and effective. Treatment time is usually only a matter of months, depending on the severity of the problems we are correcting.
ClearCorrect works well for many busy adults seeking to straighten out the situation in their mouth, but it is not the best fit for all patients.
Let’s Get Going!
