Braces

Braces are a traditional and cost effective approach to teeth straightening. The metal brackets and wires work together to shift teeth into their proper position over
time. While there is short term discomfort and a larger impact on your appearance in comparison to other methods, braces generally work faster because they are fixed in your mouth. This means there is improvement occurring at every moment.

Invisalign is a teeth straightening method that consists of clear, custom-fabricated aligners that gradually move teeth. These trays are worn for up to 22 hours a day, and switched for a new set every two weeks. The aligners are invisible and can be removed before eating and prior to any oral hygiene activity. Despite these advantages, Invisalign is not for everyone. Success depends on the patient’s cooperation and dedication – the aligners will have no effect if not worn for the instructed amount of time.  Relapses and extended treatment become necessary when patients forget to wear their aligners, misplace them or damage them.
