Dr. T.C. Hardy can speed up the duration of orthodontic treatment, discreetly place braces behind the teeth, or use Invisalign® to fix teeth without dramatically impacting your appearance.

Fort Collins, CO — With recent advancements in orthodontic technology, orthodontists can correct misaligned teeth faster and more discreetly than ever before. Dr. T.C. Hardy, an orthodontist in Fort Collins, has devoted his career to helping his patients achieve beautiful smiles as quickly and efficiently as possible. Whether his patients at Taft Hill Orthodontics select traditional braces, lingual braces, or Invisalign® for their orthodontic treatment, they can significantly improve the aesthetics of their smile and enjoy the boost of confidence that comes with straight teeth for decades afterward.

Years of metal braces detracting from the look of your smile may be a thing of the past,” says Dr. Hardy. In recent years, braces have received a number of upgrades. Ceramic brackets are less conspicuous than traditional metal alternatives. Lingual braces, on the other hand, are bonded to the back of the teeth rather than the front and are hidden from the view of others. To help speed up the treatment duration of adult braces, patients can use an oral appliance called AcceleDent® Aura. The Fort Collins orthodontist explains that AcceleDent® Aura can quicken the bone remodeling process by using the device for 20 minutes a day.

Alternatively, Invisalign® employs an entirely different method of straightening teeth. Utilizing a system of removable clear plastic aligners, Invisalign® provides a nearly invisible orthodontic solution. When comparing the aesthetic advantages of Invisalign® vs braces during treatment, Dr. Hardy notes that “many patients believe Invisalign® is the clear winner.” However, Invisalign® has a number of additional benefits, as well. Compared to traditional orthodontics, the Invisalign® system simplifies daily maintenance, often requires fewer office visits, and can reduce the overall treatment duration. With so many options for orthodontic treatment, Dr. Hardy takes time during the consultation process to thoroughly explain the advantages of each method and help his patients make an educated decision about their oral health. Regardless of which treatment method is selected, Dr. Hardy’s goal remains the same: to provide his patients with straight teeth and a healthy, beautiful smile.

Dr. T.C. Hardy of Taft Hill Orthodontics discusses how his practice is giving back to the Sister Mary Alice Murphy Center for Hopeby hosting a coat drive.

Fort Collins, CO — At Taft Hill Orthodontics, Dr. T.C. Hardy says he and his staff are always eager to give back to the Fort Collins community. Most recently, the practice organized a coat drive to collect sweaters, coats, and jackets to benefit the Sister Mary Alice Murphy Center for Hope. The charitable organization offers services to individuals and families without a current permanent residence, notes Dr. Hardy.

The Fort Collins orthodontist says the Murphy Center for Hope has a range of programs and services for people in need. The facility provides a safe place for people to eat, shower, and do laundry, and it even includes a play area for children, highlights Dr. Hardy. Additionally, the Center provides assistance with:

  • Job training
  • Transportation
  • Housing
  • Employment
  • Mental health and/or substance abuse counseling
  • Health and medical care

Dr. Hardy invites anyone who has gently-used coats, sweaters, or jackets they are willing to donate to stop by Taft Hill Orthodontics before the coat drive ends on November 21, 2014. He and his staff are excited about supporting a good cause and will continue to look for opportunities to give back to their local community.
