BROOKFIELD, WI, February 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Bohl and Race Orthodontics offers the latest orthodontic technology available today, including Suresmile Braces with 3D technology that reduces treatment time by up to 40% and Invisalign aligners which are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
How do shorter treatment times, fewer office visits and less discomfort sound? That's the secret behind Suresmile Braces. Through the use of SureSmile's sophisticated 3-D imaging, treatment planning, and customized precision archwires, we can now reduce the treatment time compared to conventional braces. Furthermore, the SureSmile system's 3-D software allows Dr Bohl or Dr Race to analyze how to effectively and efficiently align your teeth which translates into fewer office visits.
Invisible Braces (Invisalign) for Adults and Teens
Clear appliances (such as Invisalign) use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. And, no one can tell you are wearing those aligners because they are invisible! Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth and are therefore "invisible" when you smile. Lingual braces are 100% customized to match the shape of your teeth, and therefore the metal appliances are created uniquely for you. Lingual braces are a very reasonable option for athletes, models, actors, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals.
Planning Now and Save Later
It's no secret that an early phase of orthodontic treatment using appliances will direct the growth relationship of the upper and lower jaws, thus providing a good relationship and adequate room for the eruption of all permanent teeth. So planning now can certainly save you in the long run. Fortunately modern orthodontic technology can benefit individuals of any age. Initial consultation with Dr. Boyd will provide information on the best course of treatment:
