Bay Minette Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. The ceramic or metal brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny elastics or rubber bands. Through regular adjustments with our doctors, these components work together to apply gentle pressure, which will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
Bay Minette braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of simple and complex tooth issues. Traditional braces can close gaps and align teeth faster than other options might, which can reduce overall treatment time. In addition, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. This makes Bay Minette braces a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Bay Minette Invisalign
Instead of brackets and bands, the Bay Minette Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually align your teeth. This option is very popular with both patients and orthodontists and is, therefore, the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series to keep the teeth moving in the right direction! Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is most successful when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues. For certain complex cases, Invisalign may not be a viable option. A free consultation with Bay Minette Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
