There are some very good reasons to consider invisible braces, with the most obvious one being the cosmetic advantage. Here at the office of Dr. Linda Boehm, we’re committed to helping you, our valued patient, to get straighter and healthier teeth. And if that can be done with a method that makes the experience easier, then that’s the best reason of all.
Metal braces are the more traditional choice; one that goes back as far as the beginnings of orthodontics itself. And while there have been advancements in them, including being more lightweight and visually appealing, there is no getting around the fact that there are also some drawbacks that need to be considered. Aside from the fact that you might feel self-conscious when you speak, talk, or laugh, it’s also true that metal can cause irritation or soreness. And you have observe food restrictions while using them. Sticky and chewy foods can get caught up in the braces, while crunchy foods can break the braces. They’re all no-no’s. With our Canastota braces, however, you can eat anything you want. That’s because they are removable. You should also take them out when you brush and floss, for maximum efficiency. Invisible braces are made out of plastic, eliminating any discomfort that comes from wearing metal braces. Our Canastota braces are made in our office, using state-of-the-art computer software and machinery. You wear one for two weeks and then move on to the next, with each performing a specific role in the overall process of moving your teeth into a more ideal position.
If you’ve been hesitating to commit to having the orthodontic care you need, the time is right to consider our Canastota braces. Contact our office and arrange an appointment to have a consultation, where you can determine if they are the right option for you.
