Straight teeth and proper bite alignment has proven to improve your oral health, improve your self-esteem, and contribute to your success in life. There are different types of orthodontic appliances that we offer at our dental office in Little Falls, NJ. Below are the different types of orthodontic options:
These traditional braces are made of stainless steel and are the most popular braces for children and teenagers. We customize these braces with different colors for a more personalized look. What makes these braces popular is that they are smaller and comfortable.
Invisalign clear braces are nearly invisible and they are removable. Our Little Falls Invisalign is custom designed for your comfort with no metals, which means you spend less time in the orthodontist’s office getting adjustments. Our Invisalign Teen takes a modern approach to straightening teeth for teens. The series of clear aligners gradually straighten your teeth.
Ceramic braces are clear and translucent. They are less noticeable than metal/stainless steel braces. The main edge of ceramic braces is their aesthetic and cosmetic appeal. They are made out of a clear ceramic that does not stain the teeth. However, they tend to break easily compared to metal braces.
Self-ligating braces are metal braces without the elastic ligature. Using a “trap door” technology, the brackets allow the wire to slide back and forth resulting in fewer adjustments and less appointments. Schedule a consultation to find out if self-ligating braces are right for you.
With Lingual Braces, the brackets are placed behind the teeth and are virtually invisible to others and are most commonly made of metal. Patients report irritation to the tongue along with an initial adjustment to speaking. Lingual braces may not be for patients in need of severe orthodontic treatment. Schedule a consultation to find out if lingual braces are your orthodontic solution.
Orthodontics for All Ages
Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age. At Picture Perfect Smile, we see patients from all ages, from children to teens and adults. Orthodontics is for everyone who value the importance of straight teeth.
Orthodontics for Children
Your Little Falls Orthodontist and the American Association of Orthodontists recommend children have a routine orthodontic consultation at age 7-8 years or when their permanent incisors begin erupting. Benefits of orthodontics in children includes correcting and modifying your child’s dental development to achieve facial harmony, guiding and facilitating your child’s teeth and jaw development, correcting thumb-sucking problems, and creating space to allow permanent teeth to come in normally without extraction of permanent teeth.
Orthodontics for Teens and Pre-Teens
Orthodontics for Teens and Pre-Teens is generally called one-phase orthodontic treatment. We straighten out all permanent teeth and give our patients the retainer that will keep their teeth straight for many years.
Orthodontics for Adults
A person’s self-confidence or self-esteem and appearance can be enhanced by orthodontic treatment. There are many adult treatment options such as Invisalign, clear braces and metal braces. With orthodontics, it is never too late to straighten your teeth and improve your smile.
