Traditional Braces

For all the advancements that have been made in the field of orthodontics over the years, traditional braces remain a time-tested solution for people who are suffering from particularly advanced alignment issues. It’s worth noting that braces are not just for children; in many cases, they can also be an excellent choice for adults. The exact length of time that braces need to be worn can vary from case to case depending on what kind of corrections are required. Oftentimes, you can expect to wear your braces for about two to three years.

Clear/Ceramic Braces

One thing that often holds adult patients back from getting traditional braces is that they’re worried about having to wear highly visible metal brackets and wires. If this is a concern for you, clear/ceramic braces may be worth considering. The materials used for this type of braces don’t stand out nearly as much when placed on your teeth, which can make it a lot easier to feel confident about your grin during your treatment. Clear/ceramic braces tend to need to be worn for around two to three years – in other words, about the same as what you could expect from traditional braces.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Are you looking for a way to straighten your teeth without having to rely on braces? If you only have mild to moderate orthodontic issues, you may be eligible for Invisalign clear aligners. Unlike traditional brackets and wires, clear aligners are removable, so they won’t limit your diet during your orthodontic treatment. On top of that, most people won’t even realize that you’re wearing clear aligners unless they already know what to look for. Invisalign treatments often last between 12 to 18 months; note that you will need to wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours every day to ensure that the process stays on track.

Retainers & Oral Appliances

Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, your teeth will try to drift back toward their original positions. To maintain your newly straightened smile, we will give you a retainer along with instructions regarding how often you should wear it. Normally, you will initially have to keep a removable retainer in your mouth for most of the day, but eventually, you will reach the point where you only need to put it in before bed.

On top of that, there are special oral appliances that we may recommend to help you achieve your orthodontic goals. Rest assured that when we suggest any kind of oral appliance, we will give you a full explanation of what you can expect and why you need it. Please let us know if there’s something you want to ask or if you have any concerns.
