Orthodontics for Kids and Adults

Recent advancements in orthodontic methods and technology have reduced the time it takes to complete treatment and the number of office visits required to achieve straighter teeth. Dr. T.C. Hardy and you will decide on the optimal orthodontic treatment plan for your needs during your one-on-one session in Lakewood, CO. This will not only address your cosmetic concerns, but also the structural and functional problems with your smile (for example, fixing Open bite malocclusion).

Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign is similar to Clear Braces in that it offers a more discrete appearance and feel, but the similarities end there. Each transparent aligner is made of clear plastic without Bisphenol A, making it more comfortable than standard metal or lingual braces. Because these orthodontic appliances are removable, patients can brush their teeth, eat, speak, and rinse their mouths with fluoride mouthwash while wearing them. Invisalign clear aligners, which do not have the brackets and wires of traditional braces, allow you to show off your teeth and give you the confidence to smile. Children's orthodontics are also a good fit for Invisalign.

Invisalign Lite

Invisalign Express is an orthodontic procedure that functions similarly to traditional Invisalign aligners but takes less time to complete. It's mostly used to repair minor crowding and spacing issues, as well as orthodontic relapse and to help prepare the teeth for bonding, veneers, and other restorative cosmetic dentistry treatments.


Dental braces are orthodontic devices that straighten and align teeth as well as help place them in relation to a person's bite in order to improve dental health. Gaps can also be filled with braces. Underbites, malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and a range of other dental and jaw abnormalities are commonly treated with them.

Metal Braces

Traditional braces are made of metal and are one of the most tried and true methods for straightening and aligning teeth. It was the first and most widely used treatment for straightening teeth and modifying bite alignment, and it is still used today. The braces are built of high-quality materials that are corrosion-resistant and safe to wear in the mouth for long periods of time, such as stainless steel or titanium alloys.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces employ brackets, bands, and an archwire to provide tension to the teeth and gradually push them into the proper position. They are tongue-facing and placed on the rear of the teeth. One of the main reasons for their attraction is that they are nearly invisible. They're ideal for anyone who performs athletics or plays a wind instrument. Not all orthodontists give this therapy since it takes additional education and skill.

Clear Braces

Clear braces function in the same way that normal wire braces do. The most significant component is the archwire, which runs along the jaw's teeth. Braces work in a similar way to traditional wire braces in terms of correcting posture. Even in ceramic braces, the wires must be metal in order to pull the teeth into place, although they can be made to match the color of the teeth, frosted, or silver. Brackets are either directly attached to the teeth or are held in place by a wire and tooth-colored elastic bands with orthodontic bands.

Pediatric Dentist Dr. Namrata Hardy DDS

Namrata Hardy is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist who treats newborns, children, adolescents, and persons with special needs. One of Dr. Nam's obligations as an oral health expert, she believes, is to provide actual privilege to children. She also enjoys seeing her patients mature into adults. Dr. Nam is dedicated to teaching his patients proper dental hygiene while they are still young. She enjoys motivating parents and children to be involved in their children's oral health. She feels that each child is unique, thus she tailors her approach to match her patients' special needs. Excellent dental experiences and frequent dental visits, according to Dr. Nam, begin at an early age and have a significant impact on a child's oral health as they grow older.

Children/Pediatric Dentistry

After realising that more than half of people over 30 had gum disease and one in every four children under the age of five has a cavity, the American Dental Association (ADA) launched a nationwide campaign in 2013 to provide preventative dentistry to communities. By supporting the American Dental Association's program, Dr. Nam is devoted to doing everything she can to help the Kendrick Lake communities achieve and maintain better oral health via preventative dentistry.

Frenectomy: Tongue Tie and Lip Tie for Infants

For neonates with restricted tongue movement, laser dentistry is becoming a prominent treatment option for tongue-tie and lip-tie correction. Nursing is critical for an infant's oral development in the early stages. Because of her own experience as a mother and her advanced pediatric skills, Dr. Nam understands this. Around 10% of children are born with either a tie or a lip tie, and some are born with both. This disease impairs the infant's ability to nurse. Thanks to laser dentistry, this treatment will be precise, quick, painless, and less intrusive.

Dental Sealants for babies

Dental sealants operate as a barrier between teeth, keeping cavities at bay. Adolescent dental sealants, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, can prevent cavities by up to 86 percent in one year and 58 percent in four years. Brushing and flossing help remove food particles and plaque from the teeth, but dental sealants protect the areas where toothbrushes can't reach.

Kids Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is a style of dentistry in which lasers are used to treat a variety of dental issues. To remove and sculpt tissue, the laser uses a narrow, focused beam of light energy. It may be used to treat both hard and soft tissues without producing pain. Dr. Nam Hardy is pleased to offer the latest in dental technology with kids laser dentistry, as one of the few dentists in Colorado who can offer this advanced, minimally invasive method to treating oral health problems.
