Since they were first invented, traditional metal braces have helped countless people to achieve healthier, straighter teeth. They use a series of brackets, which are bonded to the teeth, as well as a wire, to apply gentle, constant pressure to the teeth. As the wire gets tightened at periodic checkup appointments, the teeth move little by little into their proper positions. Traditional braces are one of the most affordable orthodontic treatments, and they are able to correct virtually all levels of dental misalignment, from mild to severe.
Technology has changed the dental field dramatically over the years. Today, Invisalign® is the method chosen by millions. Technology in the form of 3D imaging allows patients to see at the beginning what their teeth will look like at the end of their orthodontic treatment. Clear aligners are specifically made for each patient and around every two weeks a new aligner is inserted. The Invisalign® aligners are removable and allow you to eat, drink, brush, and floss normally. Virtually unnoticeable, many adults prefer this method for teeth straightening. Please call All Dental Center to schedule an appointment with an Invisalign® certified provider.
Just like traditional braces, Six Month Smiles uses brackets and wires to reposition the teeth. However, the wire is clear and the brackets are tooth-colored, enabling patients to smile with confidence throughout their treatment. The Six Month Smiles system aims primarily to straighten the teeth at the front of the mouth (the ones that are easily visible when you smile) rather than correct issues that threaten oral health. As its name implies, the average treatment time with this system is only half a year!
