Whether you are an adult looking to have a straighter, healthier, more beautiful smile or a parent who wants to provide a child with the benefits of straighter teeth, we have multiple orthodontic options available. Dr. Robert Seaman has been straightening and improving patients’ smiles for over 30 years. We invite you to visit Seaman Family Dentistry if you or a member of your family would like to receive orthodontics in Lenexa, Kansas.

Welcome to our introductory orthodontic page, if you know exactly what category of orthodontic care you are looking for, please scroll down to the links for our more specific orthodontic pages. Depending on a patient’s needs, our dentist can utilize fixed or removal appliances to broaden the arches or to assist in correcting the relationship in which the upper and lower teeth come together.  When it comes to the actual straightening of the teeth, you will have multiple options for the type of braces used.

You can choose from traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, or Clear Correct. Typically, we only recommend Clear Correct for adults or very mature teens. Since these are removable, the results and length of treatment are dependent on these being worn the majority of the day and night without being misplaced.

To begin your orthodontic journey, you will need to come in for a set of orthodontic records, including X-rays, models, and photos that Dr. Robert Seaman will utilize to determine the best type of orthodontic treatment for you or your child. Once the treatment plan is established, you will sit down with Dr. Robert Seaman and go over the type of treatment options you have and the length of each option (if there are multiple options for your case).  One of our appointment secretaries will also meet with you at this time to go over the costs involved and the financial options available to you, as well as any insurance benefits, if you have dental insurance which covers orthodontic treatment.After that, you are ready to get started on your orthodontic treatment.

Below are videos covering various orthodontic conditions which we can treat at Seaman Family Dentistry. If you are interested in finding out if orthodontic care is what you or your child needs, or even if you want to discuss alternatives to straightening teeth, please call us today and schedule a complimentary Smile Consultation with Dr. Robert Seaman. This visit is just a preliminary step, if you are not ready to schedule an orthodontic records appointment or you are not sure whether orthodontic care is what you are looking for or if your child needs this service. So don’t hesitate to find out, call us today and make an appointment – we are looking forward to assisting you in this process.”
