Traditional Braces are used to straighten out teeth. They are essentially metal brackets, and over the years they evolved to be more sleek and comfortable. With the option of customizing color elastic bands, you can make the traditional braces more fitting to your personality. Leaver & Gardner Orthodontics can provide corrective treatment with traditional braces. The average time for traditional braces to achieve maximum results takes 18-24 months, depending on many variables.
Damon Self-Ligating Braces
Similar to traditional braces, Damon Self-Ligating Braces are metal brackets designed to straighten teeth. Ceramic and clear brackets can be used. They are designed to straighten your teeth, but unlike the traditional braces, Damon Self-Ligating Braces do not require the use of the elastics. Instead, specialized clips are used. With this method, fewer office visits are needed for adjusting. Leaver & Gardner Orthodontics have the expertise to utilize Damon Self-Ligating Braces for patients that opt for this solution.
Damon Clear Braces for Adults and Teens
Damon Clear Braces are more geared for teenagers and adults, for the aesthetically pleasing straightening method. They are made with clear materials so they are less noticeable. Being made from ceramic materials, they are a bit larger than the traditional metal brackets. Far more diligence for daily oral hygiene and care is needed. Becoming more popular, Leaver & Gardner Orthodontics can happily provide Damon Clear Braces to those looking to keep treatment less noticeable.
Invisalign are clear acrylic trays designed to straighten teeth. They are removable which makes eating, drinking and daily oral hygiene easier and more optimal. Invisalign is far more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces as minor abrasions do not occur as they do in metal bracket braces. Invisalign is making headway, and with Leaver & Gardner Orthodontics, Invisalign can give patients top quality results.
Lingual braces are fitted behind the teeth, and are custom fitted to fit the unique shape of each individual tooth. This method is optimal to keep treatment more discreet and is often used amongst athletes, musicians who play wind instruments and those who prefer to keep treatment out of sight. Leaver & Gardner Orthodontics knows that sometimes wearing braces can be unappealing in adults and teens. With the use of Lingual Braces, you can have the best of both worlds; superior straightening for your teeth without the obvious displays.
Partial Orthodontic Treatment
Not every patient is in need of full braces, when the occasion arises, some patients only require partial braces.
Phase I and Phase II Treatments
Phase I treatments are designed for early innovation in children with just a few erupted permanent teeth (around the age of 7), that have special needs for early correction before issues become worse. Generally following the Phase I treatments, Phase II begins at the average age of 12 or 13 when most of the permanent teeth have erupted.
