At Indigo Orthodontics, we specialize in using orthodontics to assist in aligning and straightening your teeth to not only improve appearance, but to also improve your bite and dental health. Orthodontics may be used to correct malocclusions, overbites, underbites, cross bites, deep bites, crooked teeth and other imperfections of the teeth and jaws. Braces may be used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help with making corrections to a person’s bite.
Dental technology has improved over the years to include new options to help correct the above issues, and there are a number of techniques and products available that were not available just a few short years ago. The patient experience has improved and today’s options are less conspicuous than the full braces that were common in the past.
Metal braces made from stainless steel brackets and wires remain the most popular choice for braces and are very effective.
Virtually invisible, there are several advantages clear brackets have over traditional braces and aligners. Clear braces combine tieless braces with high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results. Available from skilled orthodontists, clear braces combine the best of traditional clear braces and invisible aligners to deliver a discrete treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth.
Wild Smiles Braces
Wild Smiles braces are specially designed brackets that come in a variety of fun shapes such as stars, hearts, footballs, etc… Wild Smiles braces are a unique alternative to traditional braces that turn correction into expression by allowing you to show off your own personality.
Self-ligating brackets have some advantages over traditional metal braces.
The primary difference is that they do not use elastics or metal ties to connect the archwire to the brackets. There are several potential benefits to choosing self-ligating brackets if it is determined that they are a good option for your treatment.
- Aesthetics – Self-ligating brackets may appear smaller than traditional brackets.
- Cleaning – The absence of elastics and ties can make it easier for patients with self-ligating braces to keep their teeth and braces clean, although special care and attention to daily cleaning is important with any type of orthodontic treatment.
- Appointment Time – Adjustment appointments are often shorter with this efficient system due to the specialized brackets that hold the archwire within the bracket.
- Treatment Time – Overall treatment time with self-ligating orthodontic brackets is often shorter than that of traditional metal braces.
