Braces Do More Than Straighten Smiles

That’s right—dental braces aren’t just for looks. Braces also have health benefits, including alignment of the upper and lower jaw. This alignment helps relieve pressure on temporomandibular joints, which could ease teeth grinding, symptoms of TMJ, and other painful jaw symptoms. Dental braces might relieve your jaw pain.

When Should I Get Dental Braces?

We can apply braces at any age, even late into adulthood. However, teeth braces yield better results if applied in childhood. Like all bones in children, teeth are easily molded and moved because a child isn’t done growing. If you’re an adult, dental braces are still a healthy option for better smiles. Be sure to ask about Invisalign® braces as a more discreet alternative. 

When Should I Get Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with an Invisalign-trained doctor. Your doctor will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile. Once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. You will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your doctor. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until you reach your beautiful new smile.

Invisalign clear aligners are made from SmartTrack material, so they are more comfortable and easier to put on and take off.

Patients get a preview of their new smile on the first visit with the iTero digital scanner. 60% of patients that were shown an Invisalign Outcome Simulator on the iTero Scanner started Invisalign treatment.

See The Difference

  • Invest in traditional teeth braces for a straight smile. Traditional braces are made of strong metals that withstand biting, chewing, and frequent movement.
  • Spruce up your teeth straightening journey with a splash of color. Traditional braces feature a colored band over the metal, giving your teeth a unique flair.
  • Are you weary of having metal on your teeth? Don’t sacrifice your smile—try Invisalign braces. Invisalign uses clear aligners that straighten your teeth without any metal or bands.
