Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They are made out of metal or ceramic brackets attached to your teeth, then connected by wires and rubber bands or elastics. The components of your braces work together to apply gentle pressure, through regular adjustments with our doctors, which will slowly move the teeth into the correct position.
Pearland braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of both simple and complex tooth issues. Pearland braces are also a cost-effective option for patients on a budget. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. In addition, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can.
Instead of brackets and bands, the Pearland Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into place. This option is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists, making it the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over your teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next set to make sure your teeth keep moving in the right direction! Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment for them to do their job. Patients who don’t wear their aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is most effective when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a viable option. A free consultation with McGrory Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
