Depending on the type of realignment you require, the team will choose to use metal braces, clear plastic aligners, or a combination of the two.

Traditional braces can straighten your teeth using metal wires, rubber bands, and brackets, while Invisalign and SureSmile systems gradually manipulate your teeth into the desired alignment with a transparent dental appliance.

The advantage of clear aligners is the discretion they provide, as they are almost invisible. Additionally, they are removable, meaning that you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.

They are custom-made to fit your teeth and require less orthodontic maintenance than metal braces, as they do not need to be tightened and adjusted over time.

However, given that continued use is the main factor in the success of your clear aligner treatment, the practice may not recommend them if you cannot commit to wearing them for at least 22 hours a day. The orthodontists may also choose to treat you using traditional braces if you require more significant realignment.

“The patient's diligent use of any prescribed rubber bands or headgear is an important factor in achieving the most efficient treatment. Interceptive, or early treatment procedures may take as few as six months”, a spokesperson for the practice explained.

Dr. Liu's team of practitioners has experience in both teeth straightening options and are certified providers of SureSmile and Invisalign.
