Older, banded orthodontic appliances used to make cleaning one’s teeth more difficult, which resulted in tooth decalcification and decay. However, at our offices we use some of the most modern braces, which have bonded brackets that make it easier for you to care for your teeth. We also provide Invisalign, the removable aligners which allow you to clean your smile like you normally would.
Orthodontics are also a lot healthier for your smile in comparison to restorative and cosmetic procedures like dental crowns or veneers. For these procedures, your tooth tissues need to be cut down to make space for the restorations, which may need replacements every few years. But with orthodontics, your teeth can retain their natural structure, and the results of treatment can last for a lifetime.
