Why Choose Jay R. Lopez, DDS, PC for Orthodontics/Braces?
- Clear Aligners Made In-House with 3D Printer
- Traditional Braces Available for Severe Cases
- Advanced Technology Used for Precise Planning
Braces continue to be used today to make even the most extensive orthodontic corrections. A series of metal brackets are attached to the teeth, and a small wire is used to connect them. The pressure from the wires slowly pushes the teeth towards a new position. Over time, your smile will gradually straighten out. Both children and adults can benefit from using traditional braces to make a wide variety of corrections to the teeth and bite.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Milder orthodontic issues can sometimes be corrected with see-through Invisalign aligners. You wear each aligner in the series for about two weeks. Invisalign has two major advantages over traditional braces. First of all, it’s a much more discreet treatment that most people won’t even notice. And second, because the aligners can be taken out of your mouth, nothing is stopping you from enjoying all of your favorite foods while your teeth are being adjusted.
When it comes to convenience, SureSmile aligners have a clear advantage over traditional braces. Instead of visiting our office for adjustments more frequently, you only need to come see us once a month, which saves you valuable time. In addition, the technology used to make SureSmile aligners speeds up the process, so you receive your aligners about two weeks after your initial consultation and finish treatment months sooner than you would with normal braces. Plus, these comfortable, custom aligners are removeable, giving you the freedom to eat what you want and care for your smile as usual.
