Knoxville TN Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. The metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments with our doctors, these components work together to apply gentle pressure, which will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
Knoxville TN braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of tooth issues, from simple to complex. Traditional braces can often align teeth and close gaps faster than other options, meaning that you’ll spend less time wearing braces. In addition, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. This makes Knoxville TN braces an affordable orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Knoxville TN Invisalign
Rather than brackets and bands, the Knoxville TN Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment. Invisalign is currently the top alternative to traditional braces because it’s so popular with both patients and orthodontics.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. To keep teeth moving as they should, the virtually invisible trays should be changed out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction. You need to wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job. 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 at its best when it’s used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues.
Invisalign may not be a good option for certain complex cases. A free consultation with Knoxville TN Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
