When it comes to getting straighter teeth, we at Davis Family Orthodontics are pleased to offer two outstanding options to choose from with our braces in Morrow. Whether for you or for your child, proper teeth alignment is essential not just for cosmetic reasons but also because it supports greater dental well-being. For one thing, shifting teeth can lead to discomfort. And when they are crooked, it is more difficult to floss between them effectively, putting you at greater risk for tooth decay and gum disease. With a more modern take on metal braces plus Invisalign and its state-of-the-art advantages, you will be able to find the right option for you.
Traditional braces made out of metal still exist for a very good reason: they work. They are highly effective, especially so when you have a particularly tough case of teeth misalignment. And while it may take a little effort to become accustomed to wearing them, metal braces today are much more stylish and less obtrusive than the ones of the past. Our orthodontist will fit you with our braces in Morrow and with regular adjustments and checkups, help to guide your teeth toward a more ideal position.
Invisalign, on the other hand, is a system of clear aligners made out of plastic. It serves the same purpose as metal braces do, but there are benefits of Invisalign that are simply not possible with metal braces. First, your aligner is removable. You will only take it out to brush, floss, and eat. But that is important because it supports more efficient oral hygiene and allows you to eat anything you want during the course of your treatment, instead of having to avoid certain things, such as sticky foods. Invisalign is also more comfortable to wear, not digging into your gums or possibly causing irritation like metal braces can. But perhaps the most impressive aspect is that the aligners are virtually invisible. You can avoid any awkwardness you might associate with wearing our braces in Morrow. Unlike metal braces, you will not wear just one, but an average of about 18 to 30, each for about two weeks.
