As many dentists are rushing to abandon braces in favor of newer, more marketable technologies, at Collins Dentistry & Aesthetics, our cosmetic dentists still recommend braces for many of our patients. Why do we do this?
Results Matter Most
Braces have never really been a popular dental treatment, except for one thing: their results. And even with new innovations in orthodontic treatment there are still times when traditional wire-and-bracket braces will give you the best results. We believe in Invisalign clear braces, and we offer them alongside our traditional braces. But we also know that they have their limitations, and, although they’re getting better, they’re still not able to accomplish all the things that traditional braces can do. We also like that in many cases we just know that braces will work, where we might not be 100% certain for clear braces.
Braces Are Better Than Ever
Although braces are a technology that is more than 150 years old, they are also very new. Just like Invisalign, braces have been taking advantage of new discoveries in materials and computing to become a better technology. Clear brackets and white wires can make braces less visible, and new designs make them more comfortable than they used to be.
You Deserve a Choice
Another important reason we continue to use braces is because we think you should have choices and options to accomplish your beautiful smile. Many people start out thinking they definitely want to use clear braces, but then realize they didn’t quite understand how they worked and want to consider traditional braces. We want you to have the choice about which orthodontic procedure is right for you. Offering multiple options gives you the chance to consider all the factors and decide which one you like best. If you are ready to make a decision about your braces treatment, please call (509) 532-1111 for an appointment with a cosmetic dentist at Collins Dentistry & Aesthetics to talk about your options.
