Remove Gaps and Misalignment Via Effective Orthodontics
If your teeth have begun to crowd or become misaligned over time, either because of your genetics or as a result of relapse from a previous orthodontic treatment, you may be thinking about additional orthodontic treatments to correct them. For many, the thought of wearing a series of metal brackets in their mouths for several years does not sound ideal. Thankfully, you don’t have to settle for that option when you visit our dentists. To schedule your very first consultation, give our practice a call!
The Invisalign treatment uses custom-made clear aligners to gently shift teeth into a new position over time. After determining if Invisalign is right for you, we can virtually design your treatment process from start to finish. Once we’ve received your series of clear aligners, which can vary in amount depending on the complexity of your treatment needs, you can start wearing your clear aligner trays and move on from one to the next until you complete the series. Each tray is worn for about two weeks at a time. Since you can control your treatment, you don’t have to visit our office for checkups as often as you would for traditional braces. You can also remove the aligners on your own with ease, making oral care and eating your favorite foods simple.
Six Month Smiles®
In contrast, Six Month Smiles is a fixed orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear and tooth-colored materials. The brackets and wires are bonded to your teeth, but only the visible portions. This allows the process to be far more targeted towards only the teeth visible in your smile. Since the materials we use in Six Month Smiles are designed to blend in with your smile, they are far more subtle than traditional hardware which is silver in color. If you want to only address cosmetic gaps and misalignment in visible teeth and you want to complete treatment as quickly as possible, the average treatment length takes only six months to complete.
