February is Dental Health Month

Did you know that dental health has an entire month dedicated to it? February has been named National Children's Dental Health Month to help create awareness of the importance of understanding how to keep your mouth healthy. The health of your teeth and mouth are directly related to your overall health!

Dental Health Month Contest

To celebrate, Skelton Orthodontics wants to test your dental knowledge with some fun facts. Think you can answer all of the questions correctly? Follow us on our Facebook page to be notified when the contest begins!

You can enter the contest in office and online! Simply answer six questions and you will be entered to win a FREE Waterpik Water Flosser! One lucky winner will be drawn at the end of the month. Good luck to all!

Need Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics plays a vital role in the health of your teeth. It is important that your jaws and bite align correctly for chewing and swallowing. In addition, your teeth need to be in a position where the majority of the surface area can be cleaned. Gum disease develops when bacteria builds up and straight teeth help solve this problem!

If you want more information about orthodontic treatment, contact us today! Dr. Aimee Skelton offers complimentary consultations for both braces and Invisalign® clear aligners. We will design a unique treatment plan for each patient to fit your needs and your budget. Our team is happy to answer any questions you might have!

invisalign gold

Invisalign® Gold Provider 2019

What does Invisalign® Gold mean?

Dr. Aimee Skelton is excited to be an Invisalign® Gold Provider for 2019! The level given to your Invisalign® status is determined from the orthodontist's overall experience and the relative number of patients they have treated with Invisalign®. The levels range from bronze to VIP.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a company that makes a series of clear aligners to straighten your teeth. If you are a candidate for this form of treatment, Dr. Aimee Skelton will create a unique treatment plan for your aligners using 3D computer imaging technology. Invisalign® will then create the aligners based on Dr. Skelton's treatment plan. You wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks before switching them out for the next set until your teeth have shifted into the correct positions.

Many people prefer this more subtle form of treatment over metal brackets and wires. Invisalign® aligners can be removed to eat, drink and brush your teeth, but should be worn at all other times to stay on track with your plan.

Are you a candidate for Invisalign®?

We also offer Invisalign Teen® to our patients so age is not a factor! However, there are certain cases where Invisalign® is not a treatment option so the best way to tell if you are a candidate is in a complimentary exam here at our office.

Call today or request an appointment online to schedule a complimentary exam with Invisalign® Gold Provider, Dr. Aimee Skelton to see if you are a candidate. Our team would love to cover the details with you in person!
