Braces Are Still the Best Solution for Many Orthodontic Issues
Traditional metal braces can solve a wider variety of orthodontic problems than many newer methods of straightening teeth. Often, severe bite or alignment issues especially should be treated with braces. In addition, braces are:
- More tested, as they have been in use for centuries versus decades for newer orthodontics options.
- Often more affordable than other choices.
- Appropriate for all ages, unlike some newer orthodontics options.
- Customizable, with the ability to use different colors for brackets and/or elastic ties.
In recent years, braces have also become more comfortable and more discreet, thanks to improvements such as smaller brackets and wires and longer-lasting metals that require fewer adjustments.
Early Orthodontic Intervention Can Help Prevent Future Issues
Dr. Hawkins will keep a close eye on your children’s teeth as they develop. In some cases, early orthodontic intervention can help them avoid more complicated and costly treatment in the future. If they lose a baby tooth earlier than expected, because of decay or other reasons, Dr. Hawkins may recommend a space maintainer. This appliance keeps the space open to ensure correct placement of the permanent tooth. If you’d like to learn more, schedule a free orthodontic consultation for your child!
Try Invisalign, a Clear Braces Option
Depending on your orthodontic issues, you could be a candidate for Invisalign, which uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth instead of metal wires and brackets. It’s popular among adults, thanks to its discreet appearance and its convenience. The aligners are removable, so you can take them out for a big work presentation or other special occasions. In addition, treatment time with Invisalign is often months shorter than with traditional braces.
Invisalign is not for everyone, though. Dr. Hawkins can help you decide if it’s the right solution for you. Among the factors he’ll review:
- Condition of teeth and gums
- alignment of bite
