Orthodontics in Alexandria
If when you think of orthodontics, you picture metal braces, you are only getting a small piece of it. Yes, traditional braces are still popular, but at Dental Excellence, we are pleased to also offer Invisalign, 6 Month Smiles, MTM Clear Aligner, and Ortho-Tain/Healthy Start. Which option is best suited to you? That will depend on various factors, but it's reassuring to know that you have a choice and that our orthodontics in Alexandria
are geared toward your individual needs and preferences.
Metal braces have undergone significant improvements over the years, and are now more lightweight and stylish than the earlier ones used to be. For some particularly challenging cases of tooth positioning, they may still be the best selection, or you may decide on them for other reasons, including the comfort of familiarity or the fact that as a fixed appliance, you don't have to worry about when to take them out and put them back in. Invisalign began a revolution in teeth straightening. They consist of a series of aligners made out of clear plastic. There is no greater cosmetic advantage than to keep your privacy. No one has to know you're wearing anything on your teeth. Unlike with metal braces, they are removable, which eliminates any food restrictions. Feel free to enjoy all of your favorites. MTM Clear Aligner are also invisible braces, but they are fashioned to address a specific issue called minor anterior misalignment, which as many as 50% of people experience. Our orthodontics in Alexandria
also consist of 6 Month Smiles, because who wants to spend more time than is necessary to get straighter teeth? Along with Ortho-Tain/Healthy Start, you have an array of possibilities, so that no matter what your unique circumstances are, you can count on us to treat it in the most ideal manner possible.
