Braces today have come a long way from the uncomfortable metal options of the past. At Jolley Orthodontics, we proudly offer the latest in orthodontic technology, including multiple alternatives to traditional metal appliances.
Ceramic braces offer a subtler treatment option compared to metal braces with brackets and wires. These appliances are made of a translucent material that matches your natural tooth color. The only down side is that they can be more fragile than other treatment options, which can lengthen your treatment time and increase the number if visits to our office. Many patients prefer the more natural look of these appliances.
Incognito treatment is just what it sounds like—disguised braces that you can hardly see! We place these appliances behind your teeth, so no one can tell you’re wearing them at all. Similar to traditional options, these do come with brackets and wires. However, they are customized to perfectly fit the shape of your teeth, making them comfortable to wear.
If you want to stay away from braces altogether, Invisalign clear aligners are the best option for you. When you start treatment, we will take an impression of your teeth and send it off to a lab to create custom sets of clear aligners. Each set of aligners will move your teeth little by little each week until your teeth have reached the positions we prescribe. You can also remove them to eat and drink, which means you don’t have to change what you eat throughout treatment. Patients love the flexibility and convenience these clear aligners provide.
Are you ready to change your smile with less discomfort and shorter treatment times than ever before? If you have any questions about the treatment we offer or would like to schedule a free consultation, contact us today.
