Metal braces are often what comes to mind when patients hear the word “braces.” Fortunately, the awkward, clunky metal braces of the past have been replaced with modern metal braces, which are far more sleek and comfortable to wear. Metal braces work well for patients who have more complicated orthodontic issues that can’t be easily treated by clear aligners. They are also an excellent choice for those who do not want to keep track of removable clear aligners.
Ceramic braces are applied over the front of the teeth just like metal braces, but the brackets that are used are made of a clear ceramic material. Ceramic braces are an excellent choice for patients who want a less noticeable orthodontic option but still want the benefits of conventional braces. Patients who choose ceramic braces should be mindful of the fact that clear brackets are slightly more prone to staining, meaning they need to be cleaned extra thoroughly.
Invisalign is well-known for its ever-advancing technology and comfortable clear aligners. Invisalign clear aligners can gently shift the teeth into straighter positions quickly and effectively, all while being virtually unnoticeable to others. Patients must wear their aligners as often as possible so that each tray has enough time to move the teeth properly, but they must be removed before eating, so patients do not have to worry about any food restrictions.
OrthodonTEX offers custom made clear aligners that are designed and created completely in-house. Our aligners offer the same efficient treatment plans that other clear aligners offer without having to deal with an outside company or middleman, which leads to more cost-effective treatments. Patients also do not have to wait as long for their aligners to arrive from a lab. As soon as your in-house clear aligners are done, they are ready for you to begin wearing!
Every patient who undergoes orthodontic treatment must wear a custom retainer to keep their new smile perfectly in place. Our patients can receive their durable retainers in one day instead of waiting for weeks. We take digital impressions of the teeth (no goopy putty required!), and our SprintRay Pro Dental 3D Printer creates the 3D model, which is used to fabricate the retainer. If you lose or break your retainer, please see us right away so we can provide you with a new one as quickly as possible!
