For patients who want a teeth straightening treatment option that is removable, Hamilton and Wilson Orthodontics is happy to provide Invisalign clear aligners. Invasalign works by utilizing a clear, removable aligner that is custom made to fit your mouth. Teeth are straightened little by little through the use of successive aligners until a healthy, stunning smile is achieved. Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Wilson are certified Invaslign Topeka and Lawrence KS orthodontists.
Damon brackets are an alternative to traditional metal braces. They utilize an innovative sliding door style bracket that promotes self legation. This process can potentially shorten treatment times as well as be more comfortable for the patient.
Ceramic braces are constructed out of a translucent tooth colored material that is much less noticeable than metal brackets. This heightened aesthetic appeal is much more popular with adult patients, as they are very difficult to see unless closely examined.
These brackets are constructed from the same material as normal metal braces; the only difference is that these are coated in 24 karat gold. While this type of braces is not for everyone, all ages commonly use them.
The most common type of bracket, metal braces are constructed from high grade stainless steel. The continuing advancement of orthodontic science has led to the construction of much smaller and more comfortable metal braces, which are more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Metal braces are commonly “dressed up” with different color elastics, which your Topeka and Lawrence orthodontist can change at each appointment.
If only minor tooth movement is needed to correct your smile, your Hamilton and Wilson orthodontist may recommend the administration of retainers. Retainers for the upper and/or lower teeth are available.
