Mention braces to most people and a mouthful of metal is what naturally comes to mind. Today, however, the metal brackets and wires that make up traditional braces are much smaller and sleeker than in years past. Attached to the facial side of teeth, traditional braces are appropriate for orthodontic cases ranging from simple to complex. These braces are particularly useful in helping to correct malocclusion—crooked or crowded teeth—as well as bad bites, which can lead to other serious oral health problems. Traditional braces do require occasional tightening so the pressure can be appropriately adjusted in order to straighten your teeth and align your jaw.
When orthodontics are applied to a child at a young age, we’re often able to address alignment problems much faster as well as ensure the proper development of the jaw. Children’s orthodontics are typically much faster and less involved than waiting till they are older, so if your child is dealing with crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth or bite problems, be sure to come see us soon so we can fix them right up.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
For patients who want the benefits of orthodontic braces without the appearance of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign may be the ideal option. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into proper alignment. Dr. Berrada works closely with the Invisalign lab to create a sequential series of clear braces that are designed specifically for your unique orthodontic needs. Invisalign can correct crowded teeth, overbites, crossbites, and irregular spacing between the teeth. A typical treatment with Invisalign requires 20 to 30 sets of aligners for your upper and lower teeth, and you’ll wear each set for about two weeks. Invisalign clear braces are removable for meals as well as oral hygiene but should otherwise be worn consistently for the best results.
