3 Innovative Ways To Straighten Your Teeth [BLOG]

Today, our team at Smiles by Dr. W & Dr. R are making sure you’re updated on modern techniques and materials in orthodontics.

So we’re sharing some of our most progressive treatment options if you’re ready to straighten your smile!

3 Innovative Ways To Straighten Your Teeth!

You have several options in orthodontic treatment at Smiles by Dr. W & Dr. R in Boca Raton, FL.

That’s thanks to our commitment to housing the latest in dental technology. We’re able to straighten teeth faster and more comfortably than you’re likely to find in a typical dental office.

Here are just three innovative ways to get the smile you want when you trust your treatment plan to our team!

#1 – Lingual Braces

One of the most progressive modern orthodontic strategies is to straighten your teeth from behind using lingual braces.

That’s right!

These are brackets and wires that are bonded to the back of your teeth, which is why they’re called lingual braces, meaning they’re on the side by your tongue.

Your orthodontic treatment should not only do its job of properly aligning your teeth, and jaw if necessary, so you’re proud of your smile at the end.

But it’s not just about the outcome for our team at Smiles by Dr. W & Dr. R.

We want you to be as comfortable and confident as possible while you’re going through it.

As an adult, you’re mature and sensible enough to delay gratification if it means you’ll have the smile you want when treatment is complete. But at the same time, you also might have concerns about how you’ll look with standard metal braces for everyone to see.

That’s why many patients choose lingual braces in our Boca Raton, FL dental office.

By staying hidden behind your teeth, you can straighten your teeth discreetly and not have to sacrifice your appearance or confidence.

#2 – Clear Ceramic Braces

Similar to traditional braces, ceramic braces will move your teeth into the right position using brackets and wires.

Only this treatment relies on clear brackets and wires instead of the obvious dark metal you’re used to seeing teens wear. The ceramic material won’t take on stains and the wires will match the natural color of your teeth so you can feel more secure about your appearance while wearing them.

Again, adults love this option because it’s less noticeable, yet just as effective an orthodontic option.

Like metal braces, clear ceramic braces will:

*Correct overcrowding

*Shift your teeth into the right position

*Close gaps in your smile

*Solve alignment issues like crossbites

It’s just another innovative method you’ll find in our Boca Raton, FL orthodontist office!

#3 – Invisalign

Perhaps one of the most significant changes in modern orthodontic treatment is the use of clear aligner therapy.

Invisalign is one of our top picks for patients who don’t need the extensive alignment correction needs some people have that would require braces and much longer treatment.

Using a series of plastic trays custom-made at the beginning stage of treatment, Invisalign relies on gentle shifting as you switch to a new tray to straighten crooked teeth.

Did you catch that?

You can take the aligners off! Not only are they practically invisible, but you can remove the trays so you can eat, brush, and floss easily! It’s an ideal choice among adult patients who just don’t feel comfortable with the thought of wearing brackets and wires.
