Clear and traditional braces both work well and in the same way. The difference between both types of Fishkill braces is aesthetics. Some people prefer that their braces not be visible while others do not mind the visibility of traditional braces. At R&R Orthodontics, Dr. Rosenbloom is a certified provider that specializes in the best in restorative, cosmetic and general dentistry and pride ourselves on creating a comfortable atmosphere for patients. We know how important it is for our patients to have straight and healthy teeth.
Clear braces like Invisalign are a great new way to align teeth gently and without the unsightly hardware and wires that traditional braces use. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are fitted exactly to each individual’s teeth.
A computer-generated layout of the oral structure is created first in order to achieve the series of aligners that are used over the course of treatment. Invisalign takes about the same amount of time as regular braces. Treatment can last a year or more depending on the level of straightening needed. At the beginning of the treatment process, the first set of clear braces are created and every two weeks a new set is given.
Invisalign braces can be taken out for brushing, flossing and eating. Invisalign clear braces can be removed for cleaning, unlike traditional braces. Regular braces tend to trap food and other debris inside the braces and between gums, making it hard to get food out from between them. This can result in cavities or tooth decay.
Invisalign works to correct the many different types of malocclusions that can happen to patients, and in a more non-invasive manner than traditional braces. Call R&R Orthodontics today for more information on how to get Invisalign braces in your area.
