A Guide to Selecting the Right Orthodontic Treatment

A Guide to Selecting the Right Orthodontic Treatment

Aug 29, 2018

Do you dream of a straighter, more functional and attractive smile? Not sure which orthodontic treatment is right for you? Today, Varallo Orthodontics is discussing the various orthodontic treatment options. Hopefully it helps you decide!

Damon System Braces

The Damon System braces utilize self-ligating technology, allowing the archwire to be held in place without the need for elastic bands. Due to the fact that elastic bands don’t need to be changed, the Damon system often requires fewer visits to your orthodontist in Arlington, MA. Damon System braces are also known to reduce the pressure and friction applied to teeth, making treatment more comfortable than other options.

Ceramic (Clear) Braces

Ceramic braces look much like traditional braces. However, tooth-colored brackets are used instead of metal brackets. With ceramic braces, treatment is more discrete and less noticeable than traditional metal braces. At Varallo Orthodontics we offer ceramic Damon system braces, allowing our patients to have a quicker and more discreet treatment option.

Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign braces are designed to be virtually invisible and consist of a series of clear plastic aligners which are worn for a specific amount of time before being switched. Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing patients to eat, drink and brush their teeth without braces. It is important however to wear your Invisalign aligners at least 22 hours a day for the most effective treatment possible. Invisalign treatment is often far shorter than traditional metal braces.

Accelerated Orthodontics

With accelerated orthodontics, special devices are used to accelerate treatment. These devices can be used with Damon system braces, clear ceramic braces or even Invisalign and are a pain-free way to speed up orthodontic treatment.
