comprehensive OR PHASE 2 TREATMENT
Braces are the traditional orthodontic appliance option. They consist of brackets, wires, and colors. The colors are changed every appointment. With braces, there are some food restrictions to avoid breakages. While in braces, it is very important to maintain excellent oral hygiene and be aware of dietary restrictions to avoid breakage. Treatment time will vary from patient to patient depending on the complexity of the case. Most cases can be treated within 18-24 months.
Dr. Nicole is a certified Invisalign provider. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners which provide gentle but constant forces to allow predictable, comfortable, and reliable tooth movement. Because Invisalign is removable, oral hygiene is easier to maintain and there are no dietary restrictions. Most orthodontic cases can be successfully treated using Invisalign with good patient compliance. Treatment times will vary from patient to patient and can be estimated by Dr. Nicole at the consultation visit.
