In the past, traditional braces were your only option to correct your bite and properly align and straighten teeth. While traditional braces are still the best treatment option for many patients, alternative orthodontic treatments are now available.
If you or your child need braces, LeDowns Dentistry is not just a traditional cosmetic dentist in Denver. We also offer orthodontic options like Invisalign, Fast Braces and traditional braces to correct crooked teeth and misaligned bites to provide you with a more comfortable and natural functionality, while retaining gum health.
Braces No One Can See
Not every patient of ours had their bites and teeth corrected when they were children, and others did but their teeth shifted over time. As a result, their smile is marred by crowded or spaced out teeth and an embarrassing under or over-bite. However, many adult patients balk at the idea of getting braces because of their unappealing, juvenile look.
At LeDowns Dentistry, we don’t want this apprehension of getting braces to keep patients from getting the orthodontic treatment they need. Denver Invisalign is a great, effective option for correcting teeth alignment and bite. This great alternative to braces does the same thing braces do but without the discomfort and unappealing look. In fact, with Invisalign, nobody will even notice you’re correcting your smile.
Modern Invisalign braces use a series of clear plastic aligners that are molded to fit your teeth. Every couple of weeks you simply switch to a slightly adjusted aligner, and your teeth will slowly move into their proper place over time.
Fast Braces and Traditional Braces
Regardless of age, some patients will need more treatment than what Invisalign can provide. For these patients, Fast Braces or traditional braces will be the best option.
Fast Braces are a more modern type of braces that moves both the tops and roots of teeth simultaneously into proper positioning, whereby producing results twice as fast as those attained with traditional braces.
Traditional braces are still the perfect choice for most children and adolescents. The average treatment time for braces is around two years, though it can take longer for more severe misalignment issues.
