ORTHODONTICS/BRACES – NEW BRAUNFELS, TX
WISHING FOR A STRAIGHTER SMILE?
Are you envious of the perfect smiles you’ve seen on the big screen? Straighter teeth aren’t just attractive; they’re also easier to clean and help you maintain a healthy mouth with a well-balanced bite. While using orthodontics to straighten crooked teeth is most often done with children, adults can be candidates for such treatment as well. Contact us today to set up a consultation with Dr. Albrecht and learn more about the options you and your family have when it comes to correcting misaligned teeth.
Of course, when you first think of orthodontics, braces are what jump to mind immediately. A series of metal brackets are placed on the teeth and connected with a wire. Over time, they’ll gradually push the jaw and the teeth into their ideal positions. Despite being around for so long, braces are still the most reliable way to address severe orthodontic issues. They’re generally the best choice for younger children since they can’t be removed easily.
INVISALIGN® CLEAR BRACES
You might be a candidate for Invisalign if 1) you are an adult or an older teenager, and 2) you only have a mild or moderate orthodontic problem. Instead of metal brackets and wires, you’ll wear a clear plastic aligner that has been designed to fit over your teeth. The aligner will be worn for about two weeks before you switch to a new one; each aligner will bring you one step closer to a straighter, healthier smile. Plus, the removable nature of Invisalign allows you to eat all your favorite foods and brush your teeth as you normally would.
