Traditional Braces for a Beautiful, Straight Smile
Braces are an excellent method of guiding your teeth into their ideal position. Using gentle force, teeth are pulled into place with a system of wires and brackets. You have the option of selecting brackets made of metal, ceramic or clear plastic, so that your braces are not as noticeable. Traditional braces are designed to treat bite issues such as:
- Under bite or over bite
- Cross bite or open bite
- Crowded and crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
Invisalign® for a More Discreet Way to Straighten Your Teeth
While Invisalign® straightens your smile in a manner similar to braces, the appliance is entirely different. Invisalign® uses clear, plastic aligners to guide your teeth into place. Aligners are changed every two weeks, marking another phase in your treatment. Invisalign® offers benefits not realized by traditional braces, such as:
- Soft plastic aligners are comfortable and will not cut into your cheeks or tongue.
- Aligners are clear and therefore far less noticeable to others.
- Invisalign® requires fewer visits to the dentist.
- Aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, brush and floss with ease.
