Orthodontic Options for Casper Wyoming
“We live in a very image-conscious society and impressions are made within a few seconds. Straightening teeth makes a difference and can ultimately make or break your chances of getting certain opportunities.” — Mark Montano, host of TLC’s, 10 Years Younger (1).
Straight teeth are important in all age groups for self-confidence and a willingness to smile more! At Aspen Ridge Dental, we offer options for straightening teeth because we want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to get a smile that will help them succeed.
Our orthodontic treatments include both standard metal braces and clear aligner varieties, though neither option is what would be considered, “standard.” We practice holistic dentistry, which means we use treatments and techniques that promote whole-body health. Our orthodontic treatments reflect that focus.

Teeth Straightening for All Ages
We recently treated two patients on the opposite side of the age scale: one was 8 years old and the other was 62. Both had self-esteem issues due to their crowded and crooked teeth.
Because of this, neither patient ever smiled. However, after treatment, the 8-year-old’s parents said his confidence was boosted exponentially and he would now smile freely. The 62-year-old experienced the same result.
Straightening their teeth was a monumental milestone that increased their self-confidence and willingness to smile! Orthodontic treatment isn’t something just for teens—it can be for anyone wanting to straighten their smile.
Expect Orthodontic Excellence
When your orthodontic treatment is provided by our dentists, you can expect to have excellent results. We use high-end imaging technology and digital software to diagnose issues and design orthodontic treatments.
The standard of care at our office exceeds the typical standard of care at most other offices around the country. This is because we are constantly improving how we provide orthodontic treatment by utilizing the most current techniques, technology, research-based approaches, and professional development opportunities.
We approach orthodontics with your airway and facial structure in mind. Our treatments are customized for each patient. We work with the facial esthetics of the patient to help diagnose the treatment protocols. This means that you’ll end up with a smile that fits right in with your face shape and features.
We no longer need to extract teeth to make space for crowded teeth! An airway-centered approach means we focus on the patient’s airway to help develop a diagnosis for the appropriate treatment.
The orthodontic literature is replete with studies showing the importance of nose breathing, correct tongue posture, and a clear airway to develop healthy, uncrowded dental arches. We work closely with local ENT doctors to resolve airway obstructions that could negatively impact the facial and dental development of our patients.
To help spread out crowded teeth and minimize the need for extractions, we widen the palette, providing room for teeth and optimal airflow.
Teeth Straightening Technology
We incorporate 3D imaging into our treatment diagnosis to view the airway, the exact location and position of the teeth (including impacted teeth), and facial symmetry. This helps us determine a very specific treatment plan for each patient.
Even though 3D imaging is not standard in the U.S., it is standard at our office because it allows us to see the fine details of every patient’s skull, cranial base, jaws, and teeth. We go as far as to have a Board Certified Radiologist read these 3D images to check for any abnormalities and pathologies that might otherwise go undiagnosed.
The health of our patients is of utmost importance to us, and our technology allows us to make the best orthodontic adjustments for our patients’ overall health.

The Damon System
For this braces system, we use the best brackets and wires on the market. The Damon System incorporates the most technologically advanced brackets that are self-ligating, which means they have a passive gate that closes behind the wire to keep it in the bracket.
With this technology, there is less force on the tooth because there is less friction (compared to traditional brackets that use a colored elastic to hold the wire in the bracket). Less force on the tooth means less discomfort for the patient and a surprisingly shorter treatment time. Teeth actually move faster with lighter and more accurate pressure.
With the Damon brackets and super flexible, elastic, memory shape wires, we are able to alleviate significant tooth crowding without having to extract teeth like traditional orthodontic treatments.

Invisalign® Clear Braces
Another option for patients in need of teeth straightening is Invisalign. The Invisalign system is usually for milder cases of crooked or crowded teeth. Instead of using wires and brackets, Invisalign uses clear aligner trays to straighten teeth. These trays are clear, so they rest invisibly over your teeth.
Invisalign clear aligners are a great solution for people who don’t want to show their treatment to the world. You can go throughout your day-to-day life, wearing your aligners, without feeling embarrassed by a mouth full of metal.
