Orthodontics help with a wide range of dental issues. Most people think about braces for straightening teeth, but that’s not all they do. Orthodontic work diagnoses, treats, and prevents issues in the jaw and mouth, such as bite problems, crooked teeth, jaw misalignment, and overcrowded teeth. Sometimes orthodontic work is suggested to give a more pleasing appearance, but it’s also used to treat potentially debilitating dental problems.
At Rochford Family Dental, we offer two approaches to orthodontics.
Traditional metal braces are the go-to method for orthodontics, and for good reason. They work well, their cost is reasonable, and they’re a reliable choice for any orthodontic issue. Made of high quality stainless steel or titanium, modern metal braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever.
Invisalign braces are a popular choice for those concerned about the appearance of metal braces during their treatment period. Instead of the brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of see-through plastic aligners, each designed for a different stage of your treatment. The patient wears one set for two weeks before switching to the next set in the series. Because they’re see-through, they offer a more pleasing and unobtrusive appearance during treatment.
Whichever method is right for you, trust Rochford Family Dental to deliver your orthodonic treatment with skill and care!
