Which are the Best Braces for you?
At Aristo Dental we provide traditional braces (metal), Invisalign Clear Braces, and Sure Smile Clear Aligners. There are many different advantages to each of these types of treatment options and we believe it is best to make available all that technology offers for the best possible outcome.
Traditional Metal Braces
Braces can correct crooked and crowded teeth, a misaligned bite, and jaw problems. Braces also eliminate problems you may have with eating, speaking properly, or with keeping your teeth clean. With advancements in dental technology, traditional braces are now sleeker, smaller, and more comfortable.
Traditional braces consist of standard metal brackets that are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening every 4-6 weeks so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw. While metal braces brackets are still the most common orthodontic option, there are various other treatment options available. Read below to learn more about traditional braces and how you can customize them to fit your lifestyle.
Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign® is one of our most popular treatment options because it allows you to discreetly straighten your teeth. The appliance is a clear plastic that is practically invisible. Invisalign® is the perfect option for adults because it offers a way to get a beautiful and healthy smile without having to worry about it being noticeable.
Invisalign has come a long way since they were first introduced as a way of straightening misaligned teeth. No need for giant bulky headgear and a mouthful of painful wires, today’s Invisalign retainers are light, comfortable, and nearly invisible. As a result of both the advancements in smile technology and a great emphasis on cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign for adults and teens has become a popular choice for fixing a crooked or gap in your smile.
A great solution for teens, adults, and seniors as well. Contact us today for a free consultation.
SureSmile Clear Aligners
Clear aligners are an effective alternative to traditional braces because they use a system of clear, removable trays used to straighten teeth. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. Using clear aligners for orthodontic treatment is not for everyone. The best way to find out if clear aligners are the right option for you is to schedule a consultation with Aristo Dental today.
