Traditional braces are a perfect option to your dream smile. Through regular adjustments with our doctors, these brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply gentle pressure that gradually moves the teeth into the desired positions.
Cerritos braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of tooth issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced. In addition, traditional braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, making Cerritos braces a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Instead of using brackets and bands, the Cerritos Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment. This treatment option is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists, and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The nearly invisible 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. The Invisalign system can only work if these recommended guidelines are followed exactly, so patient compliance is critical to success. Neglecting to wear the aligners as directed can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a viable option. A free consultation with Brodsky Orthodontics will be able to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
