WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER INVISALIGN?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our braces and wires come individually packaged for you and your child from 3M, the same company that produces the N-95 mask for all healthcare workers. In addition to this being a more hygienic product, the braces already have the adhesive on them which also reduces the handling of the braces prior to putting them on your child’s teeth.
Clarity braces are ceramic braces that are small in profile and clear. This allows them to be less visible while still delivering amazing results. We can use Clarity with patients of all ages.
Have you ever questioned why braces have to go on the front of your teeth? As it ends up, they don’t need to be placed there. Certain braces, called lingual braces, go on the backs of the teeth. One option for lingual braces is the Incognito brand.
With Incognito, the brackets are placed on the lingual side of the teeth, which renders them essentially invisible to those around you. From there, everything works just like traditional braces. All the same elements are included, and they are adjusted as traditional braces are adjusted. The main difference, besides where they are placed, is that they are custom made based on digital impressions of your teeth.
The ideal age for seeing an orthodontist for the first time is seven years of age. At this age, children have a mix of adult and baby teeth, but there will be enough adult teeth that the orthodontist will be able to determine if significant problems are present.
Early intervention is suggested when a child has orthodontic problems that will require more than braces as a teen to correct. In this situation, the child will wear braces twice: once as a younger child and once as a teen. The benefits of early intervention include:
- Guiding jaw growth
- Regulating arch width
- Creating space for teeth
- Eliminating the need for tooth extraction and surgery
- Correcting speech problems
