Mars, PA Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient and effective orthodontic tools in use. We attach metal or ceramic brackets to your teeth, then connect them by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments with Dr. Rhoads, these parts work together to apply gentle pressure, which will slowly guide your teeth where they need to go.
Mars, PA braces can do a great job fixing many tooth problems, from very simple to extremely complex. You may even have a shorter treatment time because braces sometimes get to work closing gaps and aligning teeth faster than other options. Since braces don’t require some more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. This makes Mars, PA, braces a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Mars, PA Invisalign
Instead of brackets and bands, the Mars, PA Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to slowly but consistently move the teeth into alignment. This option is popular with patients and orthodontists alike and is the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible, and you’ll switch them out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! You’ll have to wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day during your treatment for them to do their job correctly. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is most effective when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues. For certain complex cases, Invisalign may not be a reasonable option. A free consultation with Rhoads Orthodontic Specialist will help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
