At Nelson R. Diers Orthodontics, Dr. Nelson R. Diers not only can place your braces or clear aligners, but we will also help you maintain your teeth while wearing them. We want our patients to continue having pristine cleanliness, which is much harder to do with brackets and wires. Braces make it harder to brush and harder to floss. We combine dental cleanings with your orthodontic appointments.
Traditional braces, including brackets and wires, are the recommended orthodontic treatment for our teenage patients- such as Invisalign for Teens. This is due to having the ability for greater movement to alter the bite or to assist in bringing teeth that have not erupted. Traditional braces allow us more control over their orthodontic treatment. Braces have been found to be more effective for complex cases including general malocclusion, which is the misalignment of the teeth, including how the upper and lower jaw fit together. Braces are effective to treat:
Invisalign are customized clear plastic aligners used to move your teeth. We customize a series of plastic aligners, which the patient will wear, changing to the next aligner in the series approximately every two weeks. This system is ideal for our adult patients who are looking to make simple alterations to the alignment of their teeth. Invisalign allows our patients to make adjustments discreetly and without the look and feel of braces. Invisalign is ideally used to move front teeth and is not generally used to make changes to back molar teeth. We also offer Invisalign NuMe to our patients which is similar treatment to the standard Invisalign treatment. Following a dental examination, including reviewing digital x-rays, we can help design a treatment plan that is right for you.
