Our Lawrenceville dental braces include two fantastic options: traditional metal braces, which have stood the test of time in providing outstanding results; and Invisalign, the system of clear aligners that represents many benefits over metal braces while being very effective in the realignment of your teeth and jaws. We at Davis Family Orthodontics understand that everyone is different. Your needs and preferences are unique to you. Let us help you to determine which of these choices is right for you. In order to do so, our orthodontist will conduct a thorough exam and consult with you, taking into account your individual circumstances. Regardless of which you go with, though, the good news is that you will be well on your way to more attractive and healthier teeth.
Crooked or misaligned teeth aren’t just a cosmetic problem, even though that’s a common reason for seeking out our Lawrenceville dental braces. They can also cause discomfort from the shifting and hinder your optimal oral hygiene since improperly positioned teeth are more challenging to efficiently floss between. This puts you at greater risk for both tooth decay and gum disease. Metal braces are still a fantastic choice, but they have also come a long way. No longer are they automatically unappealing and clunky. Instead of a lot of criss-crossing wires and brackets, they are typically more streamlined, and can even be stylish. It’s also true that the most severe and stubborn tooth alignment issues may still be best handled with metal braces. Also, since they are not removable, they are the better way to go if you (or your teen) are not disciplined enough to keep them in when you’re supposed to.
Invisalign, on the other hand, is made out of plastic. The aligners are virtually invisible, giving you the advantages of not advertising to the world that you’re wearing them. Invisalign is made at our office using a state-of-the-art 3-D computer. You wear an aligner for about two weeks and then move on to the next one. You take them out to brush, floss, and eat. Therefore, your oral hygiene is more effective and you won’t have to be restricted in the foods that you eat. Call us and schedule an appointment to learn more about our Lawrenceville dental braces.
