When getting your teeth realigned, you aren’t stuck without choices. In fact, we at Van Cortlandt Dental are pleased to offer three options for you: metal braces, which are the traditional way; and Invisalign and ClearCorrect, both of which offer a more cutting-edge and advanced way to straighten your teeth without some of the unavoidable drawbacks of metal braces.
A common question we get asked is which one is best. The answer is not that simple. Each person is different, and because of that, needs and preferences are going to vary. Metal braces are still the selection to go with when you have a particularly challenging case of improperly positioned teeth. The adjustments that can be made to the tension on them by our dentist in Yonkers result in more effective results. Also, if you are someone who does not want to be concerned with taking braces out and putting them back in, metal braces are ideal. They are fixed, and do not leave your teeth for a moment until your treatment is complete. The ones you get from our dentist in Yonkers are lightweight and even stylish. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are very much the opposite of metal braces in many ways. The aligners you wear are made of clear plastic, not metal. That makes them invisible and comfortable to wear. And there are no adjustments required, so you can come in less frequently. They are also removable, giving you full license to eat any foods you want without restrictions. The best way to narrow down your choices and zero in on the method that is right for your budget and your orthodontic needs is to come in for an evaluation and consultation.
