Your Rochester Hills Orthodontist
As an orthodontist, I spend my days helping remarkable people change their lives. A person’s smile says so much about them and is often the first thing noticed. When someone is ashamed of their crooked teeth, they hide their smile and are often afraid to make eye contact. But when they have a beautiful smile, that person is confident and secure in social situations. They actively engage with others, talking and laughing, and yes, smiling, with nary a thought to how their teeth appear. They know their smile looks incredible.
Rochester Hills Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They're made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in if you have regular adjustments with our doctors.
Rochester Hills braces are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Because they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced. Braces don't need some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, making Rochester Hills braces a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Rochester Hills Invisalign
Invisalign is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Rochester Hills Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material customized to fit snugly over your teeth. In order to keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you'll generally need to switch your invisible trays out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. The Invisalign system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Straight Smiles Orthodontics will allow us to determine your Invisalign eligibility.
