Ramsey, NJ Braces
Traditional braces continue to be one of the most effective and fast-acting orthodontic options available. The metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These components will gradually move the teeth into the desired position through regular adjustments with our doctors as they work together to apply gentle pressure.
Ramsey, NJ braces are an excellent choice for correcting many simple and complex tooth issues. They can sometimes close gaps and aligner teeth faster than other options, so your overall treatment time can sometimes be shorter. Braces also don’t require some of the expensive equipment or more complicated technology that newer treatments can. This makes Ramsey, NJ braces a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Ramsey, NJ Invisalign
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth, rather than the brackets and bands that traditional braces use. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next series. For aligners to do their job, they must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. When you follow these instructions, your teeth will keep moving in the right direction. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can harm the results and add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most effective when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues. Invisalign may not be a viable option for complex cases. A free consultation with Ramsey, NJ Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
