Orthodontic braces for youths and adults are personalized based on the patient’s needs and concerns. The length of treatment will depend on the severity of the case, but younger patients generally take less time and the patient will often avoid other mouth troubles.

Traditional orthodontics are one of the most effective techniques to straighten teeth and avoid oral health troubles that can be caused by teeth that are out of alignment. Braces can help all patients get their teeth, jaw, and lips in proper alignment to avoid tooth decay, chronic pain, gum disease, trouble chewing, speech problems, and more. Braces can also amend teeth that are crowded, protruding, or irregularly spaced, as well as crossbites, overbites, underbites, and jaw pain. While orthodontic braces are often associated with children and teens, orthodontic braces by our dentists at DentalWorks can help patients of all ages get a healthier, more attractive smile.
While some people have teeth that are naturally straight enough to skip traditional braces when they are children, they may want to perfect the alignment of their teeth. With advanced dental technology, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners to gently and gradually shift the teeth into alignment. The almost invisible plastic aligners fit snugly over the teeth to adjust the teeth throughout the day, but they can still be removed for eating, teeth cleaning, and sleeping, so patients don’t have to worry about special tools to floss around their braces or getting food debris stuck in their brackets. Invisalign is customized for each patient and can quickly improve nice teeth into a dazzling smile.
Quite a few individuals did not require or weren’t able to have braces in their youth, but they now have some spacing or crowding problems that do not allow them to have a straight, beautiful smile. Clear teeth straightening trays are tight-fitting covers for the teeth created with see-through acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that delicately moves teeth into a straighter look. Using various sets of aligners over a specified course of time, clear teeth aligners are able to transform moderately crowded teeth and spacing issues for straighter, healthier teeth. Clear aligners are often preferred by adults over traditional orthodontics since they are unnoticeable and can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at DentalWorks discuss teeth straightening alternatives, including clear teeth aligners during regular appointments.
