Clear braces are a great choice for adults and teens looking to improve the look and feel of their smile.
The Process of starting the Invisalign® Treatment is Simple:
An initial consultation, during which we will take x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth
Creation of a three-dimensional image from which we can design a treatment plan
Building custom-made aligners that fit your unique dental structure.
Your Invisalign® braces will allow your teeth to gradually move into proper positioning throughout everyday wear. As your treatment plan progresses, your aligners will change as well to move you through the next phase of your alignment. It is recommended that you wear your aligners daily for at least 20-24 hours per day. Unlike traditional treatment options, Invisalign® treatment has no food restrictions, fewer office visits, virtually no discomfort, and no difficulty with normal cleaning!
Made with high-grade stainless steel, metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment. Designed to straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires, traditional braces offer treatment options for patients experiencing a wide array of orthodontic issues including crowding and overbites.
Traditional Orthodontics provides an enhanced level of control for the doctor, since it gives 24/7 full time movement.Once the brackets are placed on your teeth, braces (the archwire) place a constant, light, even pressure, and that force helps move teeth into proper position. Following placement at each appointment placing archwire of different sizes and types throughout the process may give the feel of additional pressure or “tightening “as described by some patients which all help in moving the teeth into ideal position to enhance your smile.
