Salt Lake City Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient and effective orthodontic tools in use. First, we attach the metal or ceramic brackets to your teeth. Then we connect the brackets with wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments, these parts work together to apply gentle pressure, gradually moving the teeth where we want them to go.
Salt Lake City braces are a superb choice for fixing many tooth issues, both simple and complex. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, overall treatment time with braces may be shorter. Since braces don’t require some more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. Salt Lake City braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Salt Lake City Invisalign
Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to slowly but consistently move the teeth into alignment. This option is popular with both patients and orthodontists and is 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 patients switch them out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. You’ll wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment for them to do their job. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can harm the results and make your treatment process longer.
