Achieving a straighter smile may require a different number of things for different people. Each smile is unique, and depending on the severity of your crooked teeth you may require a different kind of races or a different combination of other oral appliances as well. But, depending on the nature of your evaluation, you may be eligible for options like invisible braces. If you happen to be interested in Invisalign, then our Monsey dentist Baruch B Lifshitz, DDS can provide you with the medical counsel and care you need.
Traditional metal braces, complete with brackets and wires, are the most common type of braces out there – but that does not mean they are the only ones available. There are several other kinds of braces in addition to the metal variety, and invisible braces happens to be one of them. With Invisalign, you can achieve a straighter smile without anyone even knowing that you're wearing braces at all! Instead of using brackets are wires, invisible braces instead use plastic trays that are specifically molded to fit over your rows of teeth, one for your top row, and one for the bottom. These molded trays will help to guide your teeth overtime. Our Monsey dentist, Baruch B Lifshitz, DDS well have you re-fitted for a new set of trays about once every two weeks or so to make sure that your treatment is progressing as planned and that everything is going smoothly.
Aside from the subtle appearance, invisible braces are also convenient because you can easily remove them when you eat and when you brush your teeth. Many older adults prefer invisible braces over traditional, and you may be eligible for Invisalign orthodontics as well.
