Braces in Lincoln, NE
For straightening teeth, traditional braces are one of the most efficient tools we have. We attach metal or ceramic brackets to your teeth, connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These components apply gentle pressure through regular adjustments that will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
Braces in Lincoln are an excellent choice for correcting oral issues that range from simple to complex. Traditional braces can sometimes close gaps and align teeth faster than some newer options so your new smile might take less time. Also, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, making them a cost-effective option for patients on a budget.
Invisalign in Lincoln, NE
Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move the teeth into alignment gradually. These aligners are very popular with our teen and adult patients, and Invisalign is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material that is virtually invisible. The trays are designed to fit snugly over your teeth, and you’ll change them every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. These changes keep teeth moving in the right direction. You have to wear the aligners 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment so they can do their job. Neglecting to wear the aligners as directed can hurt the results and add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign tends to be most effective when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues. For certain complex cases, Invisalign may not be a viable option. A consultation with Lincoln Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
