When it comes to your oral health, there are many options on the market to tweak it and make it more aesthetically pleasing and healthier overall. But getting specific with what your mouth needs is when we call in Dr. Vakil. When it comes to braces, they are the traditional, tried-and-true solution to straighten teeth. They are the most cost-effective option and don’t come with the hassle of having to take them on and off for cleaning, eating and drinking. However, many patients nowadays don’t want a smile that is paired with metal bracket-and-wire systems. If that’s the case for you, we offer the more modern approach to straightening teeth – Invisalign. This treatment plan requires a series of clear aligners that straighten teeth and repair a misaligned bite discreetly. These clear aligners attach to clear brackets attached to your teeth and slowly shift your teeth to their permanent location. Invisalign is meant to be worn 20-22 hours a day and needs to be taken out for meals and cleanings. While Invisalign is slightly more expensive up-front, the long-term benefits are worth it for many patients.
When it comes to choosing a solution best fit for your mouth and smile goals, it’s a personal choice between you and Dr. Vakil. We encourage you to schedule your initial consultation to discuss which option would be best for your smile!
