Get the Perfect Treatment for a Perfect Smile
Dental technology is always getting better. New orthodontic treatments and options are becoming more widely available.
By pairing state-of-the-art technology with our thorough understanding of the movement and growth of the teeth and jaws, we’re able to successfully treat many dental issues, like:
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Protruding teeth
- Impacted teeth
A lot of the patients we treat here at Bluebird Orthodontics end up choosing traditional metal braces as a way to straighten their teeth. While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have other great options as well.
After your free initial consultation, Dr. Frank will talk to you about which treatment is best for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed vs. Removable Appliances
Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to the teeth by metal bands or special cement and aren’t taken off until treatment is complete.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign, are worn about 20-22 hours a day and can be taken off as needed.
Invisalign aligners are best at treating mild to moderate problems and fixed appliances are generally used for more serious treatment.
Traditional metal braces are the most widely used type of fixed orthodontic appliance. They’re typically made of a mix of high-grade stainless steel, nickel, and other metals.
Traditional metal braces are a reliable, effective, and economical option that has stood the test of time for more than a century.
While traditional metal braces remain the most popular option for orthodontic treatment, clear ceramic braces are a much less noticeable type of treatment.
The Invisalign system is made up of a series of fully customized, clear trays called aligners that are nearly invisible and completely removable.
