Comfortable Traditional Braces
What you can expect from expert orthodontic treatment depends on what kind of treatment is needed. At your first appointment, pictures and X-rays of your oral condition are taken, along with impressions of your teeth so a model of your bite can be made. This information is used to develop a treatment plan which could involve traditional braces with or without elastics (rubber bands). A specialized appliance may also be recommended for a period of time.
Traditional braces are brackets affixed to teeth with wire threaded through slots in the brackets. The wires are held to the brackets by tiny rubber bands called ligatures or o-rings. Brackets are generally made of stainless steel, and wire of metal alloys to deliver a constant, gentle force to move and straighten teeth. You might be surprised to find that traditional metal braces are smaller and lighter than before, and even offer customized options like colored elastic ties on the brackets.
Invisalign for More Confidence
Invisalign is a clear alternative to traditional metal braces to straighten teeth. Using a series of comfortable and removable clear aligners custom made for you, Invisalign braces gradually straighten your teeth with much less visibility than traditional braces.
Each aligner is worn day and night for about 2 weeks for a wide variety of conditions including crowding, spaces/gaps, crossbites, overbites and underbites. Unlike traditional metal braces, they’re easy to remove for eating, brushing and flossing.
Virtually invisible, most people won’t even know you’re going through treatment when wearing Invisalign. They’re comfortable and allow for easy cleaning. Simply take them out and clean your teeth as usual. No maneuvering around metal brackets and wires.
- Improved Oral Hygiene – A removable orthodontic appliance allows you to clean your teeth much more easily than wearing traditional metal braces.
- Discreet Look – If you want to keep your orthodontic treatment more of a private matter, practically invisible Invisalign treatment may be just what you want.
- More Dietary Choices – Traditional metal braces can require some dietary modifications where clear aligners don’t. Bite into that apple or pizza crust!
- Comfort – Invisalign’s thin, flexible material doesn’t irritate the soft tissues of the mouth like metal braces can.
- Teeth-Grinding Protection – If you’re a teeth-grinder or clencher, clear aligners can also function as nightguards to protect your teeth from excessive wear.
