Orthodontics for Kids and Adults

Recent advances in orthodontic methods and technology have cut the time it takes to complete treatment and the number of visits to the office required to get straighter teeth. Dr. T.C. Hardy in Lakewood, CO, and you will decide on the appropriate orthodontic treatment plan for your needs during your one-on-one session. This will not only address your aesthetic difficulties, but also your smile's structural and functional issues (for example, fixing Open bite malocclusion).

Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign is similar to Clear Braces in that it has a less noticeable appearance and feel, but that's where the similarities end. Each transparent aligner is made of clear plastic that is free of Bisphenol A, making it more comfortable than standard metal or lingual braces. Because these orthodontic devices 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 smile with confidence. Children's orthodontics can also benefit from Invisalign.

Invisalign Lite

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


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

Metal Braces

Metal braces are one of the most tried and effective methods for aligning and straightening teeth. It was the first orthodontic treatment for straightening teeth and altering bite alignment, and it is still used today. The braces are made of high-quality materials like stainless steel or titanium alloys, which are corrosion-resistant and safe to wear for long periods of time in the mouth.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces employ brackets, bands, and an archwire to impart tension to the teeth and gradually push them into the proper position. They are placed tongue-facing on the back of the teeth. One of the main reasons for their appeal is that they are nearly invisible. They're ideal for anyone who plays a wind instrument or engages in sporting activities. Not all orthodontists give this therapy since it requires additional knowledge and experience.

Clear Braces

Clear braces work in the same way as normal wire braces. The most crucial component is the archwire, which runs along the jaw's teeth. Braces work in a similar way to traditional wire braces in terms of remedial action. Even in ceramic braces, the wires must be metal 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.

Pediatric Dentist Dr. Namrata Hardy DDS

Namrata Hardy is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist with experience treating babies, children, adolescents, and persons with special needs. One of Dr. Nam's obligations as an oral health expert, she believes, is to provide genuine privilege to children. She also enjoys seeing her patients grow into adults. Dr. Nam is committed to teaching his patients proper dental hygiene while they are still young. She appreciates encouraging both parents and children to participate in their children's oral health. She feels that each child is unique, thus she tailors her approach to her patients' special needs. Excellent dental experiences and frequent dental appointments, 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 out of 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 Bear Creek Lake Park community achieve and maintain better oral health via preventative dentistry.

Frenectomy: Tongue Tie and Lip Tie for Infants

Tongue-tie and lip-tie correction with laser dentistry is becoming more prevalent for neonates with limited tongue movement. For an infant's early oral growth, nursing is vital. Dr. Nam knows this from her own experience as a mother as well as her advanced pediatric knowledge. Around 10% of children are born with a tie or a lip tie, and some are born with both. This condition interferes with the infant's ability to nurse. Thanks to laser dentistry, this procedure will be precise, quick, painless, and less intrusive.

Dental Sealants for babies

Dental sealants work as barriers 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 a year and 58 percent in four years. While flossing and brushing the teeth help remove food particles and plaque, dental sealants protect the areas where toothbrushes can't reach.

Kids Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is a branch of dentistry that makes use of lasers to treat a variety of dental issues. To remove and sculpt tissue, the laser emits a narrow, focused beam of light energy. It can be used to treat both hard and soft tissue injuries without producing pain. Dr. Nam Hardy is pleased to offer kids laser dentistry as one of the few dentists in Colorado who can provide this innovative, minimally invasive technique to treating oral health problems.
