With Invisalign® clear aligners, Benton, Kentucky residents have a clear alternative to braces. With Invisalign, you don't have to settle for conventional bracket-and-wire braces.
There are some cases in which orthodontic treatments are either too late or the malocclusion (crooked teeth) are too severe to be treated with Invisalign®. For these patients, our team may recommend traditional bracket-and-wire braces.
Traditional braces are still the preferred form of treatment in indications requiring complex movement of teeth. Plus, patients of all ages — even into their 70s — can benefit from orthodontic treatments using traditional braces.
In the past, metal braces had a reputation for being a bit awkward and obvious, but modern orthodontics has produced versions that are smaller, less noticeable, and way more comfortable than ever before! Today's brackets and lighter wires improve the appearance and feel of these braces, and help keep irritation in the mouth to a minimum.
Another really fun part about modern braces are the pops of color you can showoff. The elastics that fit around brackets come in a wide variety of colors, and let you showcase your personality however you want.
