Traditional Metal Braces

When you hear the word “braces,” you likely picture a metal wire with little metal brackets on each tooth. These traditional braces are commonly called metal braces. In the past, metal braces were seen as “clunky” or “uncomfortable,” but the metal braces today are much smaller and more comfortable than before.

The metal braces offered at Lynn Dental Care are made up of a thin, metal archwire and flat, metal brackets that are bonded to the teeth to hold them in place. The archwire helps adjust your teeth into the proper position, using the brackets as anchoring points. During the braces treatment, your tooth root and crown will be adjusted into the proper position for both ideal functional and aesthetic results.

Traditional braces are still a top, trusted option that can help correct both functional bite problems and aesthetic concerns like gapped or crooked teeth.

Choosing traditional orthodontics can help correct the following smile concerns:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crossbite
  • TMD disorder

Invisalign® Clear Aligners in Dallas

Invisalign uses clear-plastic, removable aligners that straighten teeth while looking practically invisible in the mouth, allowing us to help treat crooked or gapped teeth in a discreet manner that doesn’t involve metal brackets or wires. With this subtle solution, most people will never know you are wearing braces at all.

Invisalign utilizes clear, plastic aligners to gently reposition your teeth. These aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn and can be removed when eating, drinking, or cleaning your teeth. Many of our patients appreciate the ability to maintain a normal lifestyle, free from restrictions on food or drinks with Invisalign.

How Invisalign® Works

When beginning the Invisalign process, our team captures digital images of your mouth and teeth to construct models of your bite. Our dental team can then digitally design a treatment plan that will shift your teeth into the proper position. You will then receive sets of Invisalign aligners that slowly adjust your teeth into proper position as you wear them.

The Invisalign aligners are usually switched out every few weeks for a more finely tuned set, which continually adjusts your teeth. They are designed to be worn between 20-22 hours per day to be most effective, with patients only needing to remove them to eat or clean their teeth.

How Long Does it Take for Invisalign® to Straighten Teeth?

With proper compliance, many patients experience a shorter treatment time to achieve their straight smile. The treatment can take anywhere between 6 to 18 months, depending on the patient's regular oral hygiene practices. Other factors that could affect the timeline include tooth alignment, tooth crowding, gaps in teeth and the general severity of the patient's case.

Patients who choose Invisalign over traditional braces often enjoy the following benefits:

  • They are more comfortable
  • There are fewer risks to teeth and gums
  • Process is quick and efficient
  • They are easy to clean
  • There are no limits on what you can eat
  • No wires or brackets

For most people, the process is gentler on the teeth since the roots move with less force, giving you a more comfortable alignment. Overall, Invisalign cosmetic dentistry allows patients to live their normal lifestyle while working toward a straighter, healthier smile.

Invisalign is often used as a form of cosmetic dentistry for many patients, but it can also significantly improve functionality of your bite as well. For this reason, we often include Invisalign in our smile makeover or full mouth reconstruction treatment plans!

Airway Centric Orthodontics

Lynn Dental Care offering Airway Centric orthodontic appliancesAn additional benefit of receiving orthodontic care from Lynn Dental Care is that we practice with an Airway Centric® orthodontic philosophy. Studies have shown that patients' airways are one of the most important factors in determining oral health and welfare. By implementing this philosophy, we keep the airways as a top priority and use an ion that prevents future sleep apnea.

This means that we avoid tooth extractions and instead opt for palatal expansions when necessary. The purpose of an expansion is to create more space in the mouth by gently widening the upper jaw, without compromising the airway.
