Which Orthodontic Treatment Is Right For You?

Straightening your smile is a big decision, and so is what kind of orthodontic treatment is best for you. Your dentist can help you choose the orthodontic treatment which will work best for you.

Dr. Jack Gaffey and Dr. Angela Gaffey of Cumberland Dental in Cumberland Park, SA, can provide orthodontic care to give you a great smile.

Consider that a straight smile will:

  • Enhance your appearance because a straight smile is more eye-catching and appealing
  • Boost your self-esteem because you know you look your best
  • Improve your chewing ability, which aids your digestion and benefits your overall health
  • Improve your oral health, because straight teeth are much easier to keep clean with brushing and flossing

Conventional braces consist of brackets and wires; these are the tried-and-true choice and are often an excellent option for more complex cases. They can be customized to give you a more discreet look. You can choose from:

  • Ceramic braces, with ceramic brackets and tooth-colored wires
  • Metal braces, with metal brackets and wires
  • Lingual braces, which are bonded to the back surfaces of your teeth

Invisalign is a plastic dental appliance that straightens your smile. You wear each set of aligners for a couple of weeks and then move on to the next set of aligners helping your teeth gradually and comfortably move into the desired position. This method is completely removable.

You don't have to settle for a crooked smile when your beautiful, straight smile is just a phone call away. Dr. Jack Gaffey and Dr. Angela Gaffey of Cumberland Dental in Cumberland Park, SA, can help you achieve an outstanding smile.

Crooked or misaligned teeth can prevent you from feeling comfortable showing off your smile in public and can stop you from feeling comfortable in social situations. Invisalign is an easy and effective way to straighten your smile. Dr. Jack Gaffey and Dr. Angela Gaffey of Cumberland Dental in Cumberland Park, SA, can determine if you’re an eligible candidate to straighten your smile with Invisalign.

Straightening Your Smile with Invisalign

Invisalign uses a set of clear aligners to straighten your smile in anywhere from nine to fifteen months. The number of aligners you use and the length of treatment will be determined by the severity of your case. The aligners will slowly push your teeth into the proper position to give you the smile that you’ve always dreamed of. These aligners are clear and are practically invisible on your teeth, giving you a sense of privacy when straightening your smile.

You’ll switch out your aligners every few weeks to continue the treatment and progress with your straightening. You’ll also visit your dentist a few times during your treatment to ensure that you’re progressing as expected and so they can make any adjustments that may be needed. You’ll have to wear your Invisalign aligners for twenty to twenty-two hours a day, only taking them off to brush, floss, eat, and drink. You’ll even wear them while sleeping, making straightening your teeth completely effortless on your part.

Invisalign can also make it easier to brush and floss once treatment is done because your teeth will be easier to clean when they aren’t crooked or overlapped.
