We Provide Braces Alternatives
Children do not always have a choice when it comes to wearing braces. As an adult, however, you should have full control over what dental treatments you undergo. Because of the potential embarrassment sometimes associated with braces, many adults choose to forgo orthodontic treatment, which unfortunately could have devastating consequences for their long-term oral health.
How to Tell if You Need Braces
You may be wondering, do I need braces? As an adult, the signs you may need braces can vary depending on your overall oral health and your age. The most common signs you need braces include:
- Visibly crooked or overcrowded teeth
- Trouble flossing between and overcrowded teeth
- Your bite is misaligned, or the teeth don’t properly close over each other
- Your jaw pops or clicks when chewing or after waking up in the morning
- Sore or tense jaw after chewing food
With one of our cosmetic braces systems at Sky Creek Dental, you can enjoy a straighter, more beautiful smile without having to endure the inconveniences commonly associated with metal braces.
Invisalign® is one of the more popular providers of cosmetic braces and consists of a series of clear, form-fitting acrylic aligners in lieu of brackets and wires. The aligners are designed to remain nearly invisible while they gently guide crooked teeth into more proper alignment, and can be removed before eating and brushing your teeth. If you’re interested, you can read more about Invisalign® here.
Like Invisalign®, ClearCorrect™ also consists of clear acrylic aligners, but treatment may focus more on addressing just the esthetic aspects of your smile. Made from smooth, solid, one-piece aligners, ClearCorrect™ cosmetic braces are significantly more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces.
Six Month Smiles®
For patients who require a more effective orthodontic treatment than clear aligners can provide, Sky Creek Dental also offers Six Month Smiles®. Combining the targeted advantages of conventional braces with the discretion of clear brackets and wires, Six Month Smiles are also discreet and cosmetically pleasing. By focusing on the cosmetic aspects of your smile and teeth, the braces are able to realign most smiles in as little as six months, rather than up-to-2-years like traditional orthodontic braces.
