Not having a set of straight teeth can be debilitating for anyone. It causes you to hide your laugh or smile, and keeps you from openly speaking to others. This can lead your friends or family to see you as shy or withdrawn. At the office of Dr. Grant Ringler in Hutchinson, KS, we offer teeth straightening services specially designed for our adult patients. We know what you’re thinking, “I don’t want to wear metal braces!” We don’t want you to wear them either, which is why our adult braces are the best alternative to traditional braces. It’s time to free your smile!
Why Are Straight Teeth Important?
There are a lot of benefits to straightening your teeth. Aside from the boost of confidence they will bring, straight teeth are less vulnerable to common health conditions like tooth decay and gum disease. You deserve to look and feel your best, and we want to help you with that using the innovative Six Month Smile treatment. Orthodontic therapy has come a long way and we want you to experience the latest and greatest in teeth-straightening technology.

Why You May Need Adult Orthodontics
The need for adult orthodontics is twofold. Even if your teeth were straight as a child, they might not remain that way as you get older. Teeth can shift as we age. Dental trauma, tongue thrust, and natural growth can also cause previously straight teeth to turn crooked and overcrowded over time. This shifting can cause severe jaw pain, poor oral hygiene, and a less than confident smile. If you’ve always had crooked teeth, your orthodontic problems can worsen over time. Either way, seeking the adult orthodontic treatment you need is a truly worthwhile investment.
Why Choose Six Month Smiles for Your Adult Orthodontic Needs?
Six Month Smiles offers:
- A much shorter average orthodontic treatment time (4-9 months)
- Nearly invisible clear brackets and tooth-colored wires

Are you tired of not being able to enjoy the foods you love? If you have to limit your diet because of ill fitting dentures or worn down dental bridges, it may be time to consider dental implants. Dental implants are made of tiny titanium posts, surgically implanted in your jaw, and capped with dentures or dental crowns. Dental implants can significantly improve your quality of life if you have lost teeth due to decay or injury. Though you must meet certain qualifications to be a candidate for full dental implant surgery, Dr. Ringler also offers mini dental implants for patients who would not otherwise be eligible. To explore your dental implant options, make an appointment with the office of Dr. Grant Ringler today. Dr. Ringler and his team of cosmetic and restorative experts proudly restore smiles throughout Hutchison, KS, Newton, Winfield, Manhattan, Great Bend, El Dorado, and the surrounding communities.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
- Bone Loss Prevention– When you lose a tooth, the roots and bones connected to the jaw are lost too. This can cause your jaw bone to recede and your facial structure to shift. Dental implants replace these roots and bones, preventing the loss of bone in the jaw.
- Convenience- Dental implants can be made with permanent crowns or removable dentures. Either way, they are secured firmly in the jaw and won’t shift or move when eating.
- Comfort- Dental implants don’t require dental adhesives or daily removal for cleaning and maintenance. Also, they will never interfere with eating or chewing.
- Improved Appearance– Dental implants are the most natural looking and feeling tooth replacement method.
Dental implants require a minimum amount of jaw bone and space to be implanted properly. Bone graft surgery or sinus lift surgery may need to be performed before your dental implant surgery. If this is not an option, you could choose to have mini dental implants placed instead. They are implanted just below the gum line, but don’t require the same bone density minimums as full dental implants. Dr. Ringler can make this determination in consultation. If you have decided that it’s time to get dental implants, make an appointment with the office of Dr. Grant Ringler today to get started. Dr. Ringler and his experienced team proudly serve patients throughout Hutchison, KS, Newton, Winfield, Manhattan, Great Bend, El Dorado, and nearby areas.
