Orthodontist 89129 & Invisalign®
At Cheyenne Dental Group

If traditional metal braces sound like a hassle and you want to avoid walking around with an obvious set of tooth work, our cosmetic dentist recommends Invisalign. Invisalign works similarly to braces in that they are worn over time to gradually move your teeth into proper position. However, there are several major differences between braces and Invisalign. 

  • Invisible Braces: Invisalign is clear and virtually invisible when worn. This is great for adults or anyone who prefers to keep the natural look of their teeth during the orthodontic period.

  • Convenient: Traditional braces require more effort to maintain and often times trap food, which can be very bothersome to remove. Invisalign removable braces can be easily removed from your mouth so that you can eat, drink, brush, and floss at your covenience without hassle.

  • No Brackets or Wires: Invisalign braces contain absolutely no unappealing brackets or wires that have the possibility of becoming dmamaged which would require the assistance of your orthodontist 89129 to correct.

What You Can Expect with Invisalign Braces Treatment


Invisalign is a system that uses a series of trays to alter the position of your teeth. Unlike braces, these trays do not need to be worn constantly. When you eat, drink, or brush your teeth, you can remove your Invisalign tray with ease. By our dentist 89129 utilizing 3-D imaging technology, the aligners are custom-fitted to your teeth, providing a more comfortable experience than traditional braces. 

Like braces, Invisalign is a process that takes time to work. This length of time varies by case and can only be determined by your orthodontist 89129, but treatments typically require a year to complete. Occasional visits to the dentist are needed to ensure the treatment is progressing well and to switch trays when it's time for the teeth to shift further.


   

Braces

Crooked teeth, misaligned bite and jaw problems are just a couple of the conditions that traditional dental braces can help improve. Traditional steel braces can also help alleviate any discomforts while eating, speaking and / or keeping your teeth clean. Traditional braces have come a long way over the years, becoming sleeker, smaller, and more comfortable. That’s certainly something to worth smiling about!

Traditional braces are commonly metal brackets that are adhered to your teeth with an adhesive and connected arch wire. If there is anything a patient must keep in mind it is that traditional metal braces require periodic maintenance such as tightening, so pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw if needed.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Metal Braces

When it comes to finding an effective treatment to help improve overcrowding there is nothing like a good set of metal braces. Other orthodontic options include clear braces or Invisalign aligners that are less of a hassle but not as efficient as traditional metal braces.

Traditional steel braces give professionals the control needed to efficiently move the teeth in small increments at a time. The main disadvantage of traditional braces is the metal mouth appearance. While most individuals that are conscious of their appearance might want to use a less noticeable orthodontics like Invisalign, the process might not be as efficient and controlled as traditional metal. Invisalign may seem like the better option because of appearance, but as a result of continuous improvement and technology in orthodontics, metal braces are much more appealing than they were before.

Taking Care of Your Metal Braces

Since the process on average will take up to 18-24 months, it is important to learn how to care for metal braces. Below are some suggestions that professionals highly encourage patients to consider, if there is anything patients find unclear, it is best to consult a professional.

  • Try avoiding foods that aren't braces-friendly such as chewy foods, caramels and other soft candies. Other foods that should be avoided are very hard or crunchy foods that could damage your braces. Certain fruits and vegetables can get stuck in your braces, and should be cut into small pieces.
  • Practice brushing and flossing appropriately. Taking proper measures when taking care of teeth is crucial, especially for the patient. Make sure all appropriate techniques are being used when flossing or brushing.
  • Keep your follow up appointments. Seeing your dentist and orthodontist regularly allows for any adjustments to the braces to be made and gives you an opportunity to have any questions or concerns addressed.

Braces Shouldn’t Be A Burden

Braces are worn for a fairly lengthy amount of time, so it is important to follow professional instructions and care for them properly. While braces may seem like an inconvenience, once the treatment is over, patients can’t help but smile. So from continuously visiting your professional to caring for your braces, it will all be worth it in the end.

Make sure to consult one of our dentists regarding our traditional metal braces and improve your smile!

I'm usually pressed for time in the mornings, and I appreciate how Invisalign doesn't slow me down. I just pop out the aligners, brush my teeth and pop 'em back in.

★★★★★ I am absolutely terrified of the dentist. So much so that I had not been in a really long time. When we moved to Las Vegas in 2009 I was referred to Dr. Tran at Cheyenne Dental by my daughter's orthodontist. The entire office staff understood my fear and worked with me to explain every single step of the entire process. Dr. Tran is gentle, kind and thorough. He not only explained the procedures but also provided education regarding dental health
