Braces may be worn not only to improve the attractiveness of your smile, but also because braces correct improper alignment of teeth that can lead to gum disease and early tooth loss. And at the Missouri City dentist office of ISmile Specialists, we have several different options for our patients of all ages considering braces, allowing for an orthodontic treatment that best suits the individual needs of each patient. Your options may include traditional metal braces, translucent and invisible braces, or transparent aligners from Invisalign.
At first the idea of braces may seem uncomfortable. Among the most common complaints when dealing with orthodontic treatment is that traditional metal braces are unaesthetic and unattractive. In order to address this issue, our Missouri City dentist and orthodontist offers our patients invisible braces. This allows us to straighten your teeth by using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners from Invisalign. They are virtually undetectable, so hardly anyone will realize you’re wearing them. These aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your doctor. Of course, we also offer traditional dental braces that utilize brackets and wires to gradually fix your malocclusion. However, they also come in clear and a variety of color and material choices, such as ceramic or translucent braces which are much less noticeable. In addition to this, in some cases, we may place the braces on the lingual (inner side) of the teeth so that they are nearly invisible.
Orthodontics aren’t just for kids, and you’re never too old to start smiling your most beautiful smile yet. Our Missouri City dentist and orthodontist will be more than happy to discuss the varied options for your orthodontic treatment, and help you decide which type of invisible braces is right for you.
