Dental braces have come a long way from the traditional metal “train tracks” that many of us had to endure as children, and with modern orthodontic advancements, no one even has to know you’re wearing braces. At Graziano Orthodontics, we keep current on the latest techniques and products to straighten your teeth, and will consult with you to see what works best to suit all your needs. For instance, as an adult, you may have developed a complicated bite problem and it may be too difficult a job to be handled by Invisalign. Although clear Invisalign braces do work wonders, when it comes to complex bite problems, our specialist in adult orthodontics in Staten Island would, more than likely, recommend impression free braces.
Impression free braces are still a cosmetic brace but can offer you the same result as traditional metal braces, without the discomfort or metal that hides your smile. Modern developments actually allow some Invisalign braces to be fitted with bands, but they are still not capable of handling a complicated bite problem. With the Invisalign retainer, there are plastic nodules that the bands attach to and they can break if they are put under too much pressure. After the initial cost of the Invisalign braces, having to replace the plastic retainer is not very cost effective. Our expert in adult orthodontics in Staten Island, Dr. Graziano, can now offer clear orthodontic impression free braces that can fix a complex bite problem, while still giving you the cosmetic advantage of Invisalign.
Impression free braces were designed especially for adults and are created from clear plastic with ceramic nodules that fit over your teeth. Substituting all the metal parts from traditional braces for a cosmetic alternative, our dedicated staff is well-educated in adult orthodontics in Staten Island, and can offer you the orthodontic treatment you need, without the look of wearing braces. The ceramic used in these braces can be made to match your natural teeth, and by using clear plastic bands and brackets to give you the strength supplied by traditional metal braces, the bulky metal look is a thing of the past. Our dedicated team is knowledgeable on these latest orthodontic advancements and happy to answer any questions regarding braces. At Graziano Orthodontics, we have choices for you to give you the beautiful smile you deserve, whatever level your bite problem may be.
