Spring is a great season of renewal. As such, it is the perfect time to reexamine the health and appearance of your smile and embark on any transformative journeys that may need to happen in that realm.
If you are an adult who has been putting off a much-needed orthodontic treatment, we have some particularly good news for you. At our office, we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to orthodontic treatment. During your initial consultation and examination, Dr. Dobry will discuss your options and help you decide on the right course of action. It could be that you are a great candidate for a short-term solution like Invisalign.

Braces Are Still An Option
In spite of the at-times exaggerated conditions associated with braces, straight wire braces are the most viable method of treatment for many of our patients. The straight wire technique is an improvement over the classic metal braces that you may be most familiar with from popular culture and personal experience.
This version uses a special memory wire along with preadjusted brackets earmarked for certain teeth. Once exact placement of the hardware has happened, the archwire pulls your teeth into better positions as it gradually returns to its regular shape.
The nice thing is that this archwire will not likely need any adjustments in between the periodic replacements that take place. This means a more brief treatment time and more consistent results in the end.
Invisalign Has Clear Benefits For Adults
Invisalign works a little bit differently. Instead of metal brackets and wires, there is no fixed hardware. The transformation unfolds simply by you wearing a series of clear plastic aligner trays that are each designed to make specific shifts in your smile.
You switch them out every two weeks or so at home, which saves you the time and hassle of in-office tune-ups that many braces systems necessitate.
Plus, you can take them out for eating meals, and executing your home hygiene habits like brushing, flossing, and rinsing. There won’t be any special tools to carry around or foods to avoid.
They are smooth and comfortable. There won’t be any poking or cutting of your soft tissues, and no mouth sores.
If you wear them for 20+ hours per day as directed, you can expect to see amazing results in 12-18 months, rather than 2-3 long years. And while you are undergoing treatment, no one will have to know since the aligners are nearly invisible.
