Invisalign Alternatives Fort Lauderdale
Reasons To Look For An Alternative
There are several reasons why Invisalign may not be the best treatment option for you.
Your Case Is Too ComplexAlthough Invisalign can treat mild to complex cases of misalignment, there are certain jaw-related issues that cannot be effectively addressed with treatment. If you have severe bite issues, traditional braces may be a better choice. Traditional metal braces are made of strong stainless steel. They can reposition your upper or lower jaw as well as shift your teeth into their ideal position. Should you desire a more discreet orthodontic solution, you can also ask your dentist about:
Clear Brackets: These braces are made using pure monocrystalline sapphire and are virtually transparent. The archwire may be clear or metal.Ceramic Brackets: Many dentists offer ceramic brackets, which are stain-resistant and tooth-colored to blend with your smile. Lingual Braces: Lingual braces are placed on the back of your teeth and are not visible when you smile. Damon™ Smile: This brand eliminates the need for rubber bands, which can draw attention to your smile as well as collect plaque and bacteria. Although these options can increase the cost of treatment, they are good alternatives for patients who are concerned about the aesthetics of metal braces.
You Are Simply Concerned With Cosmetic IssuesSome patients are more concerned about the look of their smile, rather than the restorative quality of orthodontia. Patients who want to correct cosmetic imperfections have several options. Six Month Smiles® is a short-term treatment that quickly and effectively straightens the teeth that are visible when you smile. This option features tooth-colored wires and clear brackets.
You may also wish to consider porcelain veneers, which act as “instant orthodontics.” These thin porcelain shells are bonded to the front surface of your teeth and conceal various blemishes beneath. Veneers may be right for you if you have a small gap in your smile or minor misalignment.
