Teeth alignment treatments are very popular in Austin, TX because nearly everyone strives for a perfect smile. There are many types of braces that you can choose from to have your teeth straightened, too.
At Central Texas Orthodontics, we can discuss all of your options and provide an estimate of how long your treatment might take. Dr. St. Louis and his team have been helping men, women, children and teens achieve beautiful, confident smiles in Austin, TX since 1993. Our choices in braces include metallic, ceramic or even invisible aligners.
Our teeth alignment treatments in Austin, TX include braces for adults and children and Invisalign®. We use both clear and metal brackets for children and adults. These include:
- Self-ligating braces: These are made from the same materials as traditional braces, but they do not require elastics. The lack of elastics means there will be less friction between your teeth and you will require fewer appointments.
- Clear ceramic braces: These are made from clear materials, making them less noticeable than conventional metal braces. These braces are perfect for older teenagers and adult patients because of cosmetic concerns.
These teeth straightening methods may be common, but one complaint people often have is that the brackets are bonded to their teeth. That means you are likely to have a hard time either brushing or flossing your teeth and you may not be able to eat some of your favorite foods.
But there is another avenue for teeth alignment in Austin, TX called Invisalign®. Invisalign® involves the use of clear aligner trays that are removable. This means you can always remove them when you want to brush, floss and eat. Apart from that, Invisalign® aligners are invisible, which means you can easily smile as widely as you want when you are wearing them.
The aligners are also very comfortable, and they do not have metal parts that can cause mouth abrasions. So, if you are looking for teeth alignment treatment in Austin, TX, contact our team today at Central Texas Orthodontics to schedule an initial appointment.
