Orthodontic issues can cause several problems with your oral health, ranging from simply changing the appearance of teeth to causing temporomandibular joint issues (TMJ). At All About Family Dentistry, we provide patients with several ways to correct alignment problems and enhance the look and health of their smile with orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontic dental care at our clinic is provided in two ways – braces and Invisalign®. Each of these orthodontic treatments has its advantages and disadvantages. Patients may be recommended traditional braces or Invisalign®️ based on the needs of their teeth and the specific orthodontic issues they suffer from. Let’s discuss braces and Invisalign®️ more in-depth.
Traditional braces have been refined over the decades, making them more comfortable and effective. Traditional braces are designed to correct numerous orthodontic issues, ranging from simple to complex problems with teeth and their alignment. They use metal wires and brackets that are applied to teeth to push them into position over time.
Treatment time varies depending on the factors influencing treatment, but most patients complete orthodontic treatment in about a year and a half to two years using traditional braces.
Invisalign®️ is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment plan that uses clear aligners to gradually move teeth into the proper position. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign®️ cannot be seen while aligners are being worn, and patients don’t have to worry about wires or brackets breaking or causing discomfort. Invisalign®️ is a good option for patients with minor orthodontic issues that prefer to keep their orthodontic treatment discreet and comfortable.
Invisalign®️ treatment times vary from patient to patient, but most individuals achieve their ideal smile with this treatment method in an average of a year.
