Comparing Orthodontic Options

Comparing Orthodontic Options

There are more ways to straighten your teeth today than ever before. If you live in Stafford, TX and want to improve your smile, we encourage you to call (281) 385-8203 and schedule an appointment with our Stafford, TX dental office.

Fountains Family Dental: Dr. Jennifer Kan DDS can use orthodontics to move your teeth into the right position and to align your jaw, without you having to wear traditional metal braces.  Here is what you need to know about each solution –

Six Month Smiles® is the Number One Choice for Speed in the Stafford, TX Area

When our Stafford patients visit us looking for a fast way to straighten their teeth, the orthodontics solution we tend to recommend is Six Month Smiles®.  With this solution, brackets are fixed to the teeth just like they would be with traditional braces.  The difference is that the technology has been improved so that the teeth can move into position faster.  The treatment is surprisingly gentle and comfortable but because of the shape of the brackets, it does not take as long to perfect the smile.

Invisalign® is the Number One Choice for Convenience in Stafford

If you live in Stafford and want a convenient way to straighten your teeth, there is no better solution than Invisalign®.  Your teeth will be straightened using clear plastic aligners that surround your teeth like a full retainer would.  They are not fixed in place but are removed to eat and to brush your teeth.  As long as you wear them for around 22 hours a day, your teeth will move on schedule.  This is incredibly convenient because it puts you in the driver's seat.  If you want to take your aligners out to attend a client meeting – you can.  If you are getting married and want them out for pictures – they can be.  Regardless of what comes up, you are in control of your treatment process.  Additionally, this is the only orthodontics solution that allows you to eat whatever you want because there is no risk to damaging your aligners.  They will already be out of your mouth and safely stored in a carry case.

For the Solution with the Most History, Choose Braces

Traditional metal braces have been used for decades in the 77477 area and there is no disputing their effectiveness.  If you want to use a solution that has stood the test of time, this is it.  However, both Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles® are also time-tested, so you can confidently use all three to straighten your teeth.

Comparing Orthodontic Options for Your Appearance

If you want to look and feel your best while straightening your teeth, we recommend that you wear Invisalign® aligners.  Since they are virtually invisible, it is difficult for anyone to tell that you are straightening your teeth.  Next, Six Month Smiles® can be placed using ceramic brackets that blend in with your teeth.  They are only slightly noticeable and most people find that the impact on their appearance is minor.  The key with any option is to keep your teeth clean so that your smile looks good and stays healthy during the treatment.  To help with this, visit our Stafford, TX dental office for regular teeth cleanings.
