Clear Braces Offer Customizable Alignment Invisible to the Naked Eye in Middletown IN
Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you. Crooked or crowded teeth can not only affect your self-esteem, they can also complicate routine oral hygiene, making it hard to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Long-term, this can lead to serious issues, including decay or damaged or lost teeth.
One of the biggest hurdles to orthodontic correction in the past has been the stigma associated with braces. Though braces are an extremely effective treatment for crooked or crowded teeth, many patients are uncomfortable with their visibility. However, advancements in modern orthodontics have provided the perfect solution: clear braces!
Clear braces offer all the benefits of regular bracket braces, including the ability to adjust them in real time, accounting for the natural movements and specific needs of your teeth. Dr. Jonathan Titus at Titus Dentistry in Middletown, IN specializes in the application of clear braces, as well as clear aligners, and other treatments for crooked or crowded teeth.
He works hard to stay up to date on dental and orthodontic developments and can talk you through all the options available. He will be your partner in determining the best course of treatment, as well as your guide through the process. Whatever your aesthetic or health-oriented goals, Dr. Titus will work with you to put together a plan that helps you meet them.
Clear Braces or Clear Aligners, Two Paths to a Beautiful Smile
Clear braces are fabricated from tooth-colored materials rather than the metal traditionally used in brackets. They blend in with your teeth and are practically invisible to the naked eye. Like metal brackets, clear brackets are attached to your teeth and adjusted by a wire placed across the brackets. This wire can be easily adjusted, giving Dr. Titus total control over the alignment of your teeth
Clear aligners, like Suresmile Clear Aligners offered by Dr. Titus, can offer the same results without the use of brackets. Using custom-fitted aligner trays, Suresmile adjusts your teeth slowly over time in small increments, with each tray making its own adjustment. Unlike brackets, these trays are removable, for eating, drinking, or brushing and flossing. They are a convenient alternative for many patients.
Dr. Titus has years of experience in both solutions and offers guidance to patients looking to understand either approach a little more before making their decision. The exact nature of your orthodontic issues may impact the treatments available, and he will talk you through the options, helping you decide the best approach.
