Braces Near Me
Traditional braces near you are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have for straightening smiles. These braces are generally made of metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments with Dr. Kaplan, the brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply gentle, continuous pressure that will move your teeth into the desired positions.
Braces near Dunwoody, Chamblee, Sandy Springs, and Blackburn Park have a long history of successfully correcting a number of orthodontic issues, from simple to complex. Because they can sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, your overall treatment time may be shorter. Traditional braces also tend to need less complicated technology and expensive equipment than newer treatments do, so they’re a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Invisalign Near Me
Rather than brackets, wires, and bands, the Invisalign system in Dunwoody, Chamblee, Sandy Springs, and Blackburn Park uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment. This treatment option is popular with both patients and orthodontists and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a clear, comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series in order to keep the teeth moving in the direction we want them to. Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. Your compliance is key with Invisalign since the system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly. Neglecting to wear the aligners as directed can impede the results and also add time to the overall orthodontic process.
Local Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign near me may not be a viable option. A free consultation with Kaplan Orthodontics will be able to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
