Braces are orthodontic appliances used to successfully correct misaligned or crooked teeth. They apply a constant, gentle pressure for a carefully planned period of time, moving teeth to their correct position. Your orthodontist in Marietta monitors braces treatment closely, with regularly scheduled appointments, which usually involves tightening of the appliance.
Conventional braces use brackets, bands and ties to perform their job. Many younger patients choose to opt for different colors at different times. Treatment time will vary according to individual needs. This process generally takes from one to three years, followed by retainer use. Factors that may determine length of treatment include the severity of the problem, overall health and space in the mouth.
We work with various types of braces, and will carefully assess your situation before discussing all options with you prior to treatment. A treatment plan will be developed according to your needs and desires.
Our main goal is that, once treatment is complete, you will have the amazing smile you have looked forward to.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign has become a popular alternative to metal braces. Custom-made, clear, removable aligners are used to correct your smile. They are comfortable and, because they are clear, they are not noticeable by others. Since they are removable, you will be able to eat, brush your teeth and floss as usual, improving oral hygiene. The aligners will be replaced with a new set approximately every two weeks.
Should I Opt For Self-Ligating Braces?
Self-Ligating Braces, unlike standard braces, do not require ligatures such as bands, elastics or ties. They apply less pressure to teeth in a consistent manner and allow teeth to move more freely.
These modern, specialized braces also reduce time to complete treatment as well as requiring fewer appointments with us and improved dental hygiene.
We can determine through a thorough examination whether you are a candidate for Self-Ligating Braces.
