It seems that everywhere you look, there is a beautiful, straight smile beaming back at you, in magazines and in person. That is because it has never been easier to straighten crooked teeth and the majority of us are taking advantage of the many affordable orthodontic options available. Dr. Stephen C. Hale offers traditional braces as well as Invisalign® in Texas City, TX to give patients the smile makeover they have always wanted.

Traditional Braces Are Effective for Every Need

Most people are familiar with traditional orthodontics. Traditional braces utilize a system of brackets and wires to guide your teeth into place. They are an excellent treatment for any type of orthodontic issue, including gaps, crowding, and bite problems. Today’s braces are available in various materials and colors, making them less noticeable.

Invisalign Straightens Crooked Teeth Invisibly

Invisalign provides a nearly invisible alternative to braces. With Invisalign, clear plastic aligners are worn over the teeth. Every two weeks, these removable aligners are replaced and each aligner brings your crooked teeth closer to their ideal position.

Finding the Right Orthodontic Treatment for You

While both braces and Invisalign deliver straight smiles, Invisalign  offers some additional benefits:

·         Invisalign  aligners are nearly undetectable to others.

·         Unlike braces, which are bonded to the teeth, Invisalign can be removed, so you can eat, brush, and floss without any restrictions.

·         Invisalign is custom made from a plastic that will not irritate the soft tissue.

Straightening your teeth improves your smile but did you know that it also keeps your teeth and gums healthier? Crooked teeth are difficult to keep clean, promoting decay and gum disease. Furthermore, a misaligned bite can cause discomfort and contribute to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
