At Gilsdorf Orthodontics, we’re proud to provide a wide variety of orthodontic treatment options to our patients. Every treatment has a unique set of benefits that are best suited for certain situations, and Dr. Gilsdorf will work with you to choose the treatment that’s perfect for your lifestyle. Our orthodontic treatments include:
- Metal Braces: This is what you probably think of when you hear the word braces. Made from high-grade stainless steel, metal braces use brackets cemented to the teeth and thin, springy archwires to move teeth over time. They’re durable, reliable, and cost-effective, providing a great solution for almost any orthodontic problem.
- Clear Braces: Clear braces work the same as metal braces but use brackets made from a clear ceramic composite material that blends in with teeth. This gives them an undeniable aesthetic advantage, but clear braces are slightly more fragile and expensive than traditional braces.
- Invisalign: Invisalign® does away with brackets and wires altogether, instead using a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign is virtually invisible when worn and easy to pop in and out to eat, drink, brush, and floss, making them a hugely popular option for adults!
- Invisalign teen: Invisalign teen ® is similar to invisalign with one main difference. These aligners have feature indicators that tells the patient, parents, and or the orthodontist if they have been on the teeth long enough to be effective. If there is a problem, it’s easy to correct before it becomes a bigger issue. Invisalign also provides up to 6 free replacement aligners due to loss or broken aligner.
