Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They are composed of metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These brackets, wires, and bands, through regular adjustments with our doctors, work together to apply gentle pressure that will gradually move your teeth into their desired positions.
Semmes braces are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Because they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced. Braces don’t need some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, making Semmes braces a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Invisalign is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Saraland Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. These nearly invisible trays will generally be switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series to keep teeth moving in the direction we want them to. For the Invisalign system to work, you have to follow the recommended guidelines exactly! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Bennett Orthodontics will allow us to determine your Invisalign eligibility.
