Setting Smiles Straight Through Orthodontics

Smile Fort Worth is proud to offer a range of orthodontic treatments to fit your lifestyle, aesthetic desires, and specific alignment needs. Through clear aligners or traditional orthodontics, Drs. Harlin and Wilkinson can give you a more symmetrical, beautiful smile at any age.


Orthodontic Treatments

Early Intervention Orthodontics

Most problems in teeth alignment are more easily resolved in childhood when the mouth and teeth are still developing. Screenings for orthodontic treatment at our Fort Worth practice can start as early as age 8. When a child receives early intervention treatment, our dentists can make room for unerupted teeth and significantly reduce both the cost and timeline of a patient’s comprehensive orthodontic treatment.

Early intervention orthodontics can treat issues caused by:

  • Tongue thrusting
  • Teeth crowding caused by early or late erupting teeth
  • Thumb sucking
  • Malocclusion (or abnormal alignment of the lower and upper teeth)

Traditional Orthodontics

For teens and adults, traditional braces are an effective way to straighten teeth. An even, symmetrical smile not only boosts confidence but can prevent oral health problems later in life; when teeth are crowded, overlapping, or crooked, it’s difficult to remove plaque buildup when brushing or flossing. This leads to an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease. That’s why creating a straighter smile through orthodontics is the best way to give yourself or your child a more beautiful and healthy smile!

Traditional orthodontics can treat issues caused by:

  • Irregular teeth spacing
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Malocclusion (or abnormal alignment of the lower and upper teeth)

If you are concerned about the aesthetics of your smile during orthodontic treatment, we offer clear braces for a more discreet look. For patients looking for an even less noticeable straightening solution, we also offer invisible aligners.

Invisible Aligners

Clear, removable aligners are a safe, proven method for gradually shifting teeth into alignment. For over 20 years, aligners have been the leading alternative to traditional orthodontics. Many qualifying patients choose this method because treatment is:

  • Removable for eating and drinking
  • Metal-free
  • Fast
  • Similar in cost to traditional orthodontics

Today, many direct-to-home teeth straightening solutions are available, but orthodontic work is most effective when managed by an experienced dental professional. Your clear aligner treatment at our practice will be carefully guided by Drs. Harlin or Wilkinson who have experience aligning smiles and can ensure you are happy with your results.

Retainer Replacement Services

Have you lost or broken a retainer? We can help!

Regularly wearing your retainer following orthodontic treatment is the best way to ensure long-lasting results. But if you’ve lost your removable retainer, or are experiencing problems with a loose or damaged permanent retainer, our team can repair or replace it to keep your teeth on track.
