St. Albans Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. The metal or ceramic brackets, which are connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics, are attached to the teeth. Through regular adjustments with our doctors, these parts work together to apply gentle pressure to your teeth. This will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
Braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of tooth issues, from simple to complex. Braces are also a cost-effective option for patients on a budget. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. In addition, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can.
St. Albans Invisalign
The Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment instead of brackets and bands. This option is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
A free consultation with Champlain Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign. Invisalign works best when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues, and may not be the best option for patients with especially complex cases.
