America’s Family Dental is a provider of Invisalign and traditional orthodontic braces. If you would would like straighter teeth, visit us for a consultation for orthodontic care including traditional braces and Invisalign. Invisalign is the more modern approach to straightening teeth using a progression of aligners that are custom made for your teeth. After about every two weeks you will begin wearing the next aligner, bringing your teeth into a straighter and straighter position. The advantages of Invisalign are that most people won’t even know your teeth are being straightened. Unlike braces, there are no wires and metal brackets, but rather clear, practically invisible plastic trays that you simply wear over your teeth. Invisalign allows you to eat whatever foods you like and you can remove the aligners whenever you want. You are able to brush and floss your teeth normally for better periodontal health. Your visits will be about every four to six weeks, and the average cost is about $5,000.
If you are considering traditional braces, or if they are recommended by your dentist, there are benefits to metal braces as well. They are generally less expensive than Invisalign and today they are actually in fashion! They can be silver or golden colored, and even come in a rainbow of colors, allowing you to flash your personal style, Metal braces are very strong, which means they can withstand most types of treatment. Years ago, the metal brackets that hold the wires which move your teeth into alignment were made from bands that wrapped around each tooth. Today’s braces have smaller brackets that are glued to the front of each tooth. The old type bands are used on molars or for teeth that have fillings that overlap onto the outside surface of the teeth.
