Mullica Hill Braces
Braces in Mullica Hill are an excellent choice for correcting complex orthodontic issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments, braces may reduce your overall treatment time.
Braces also don’t require the complex technology and expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning Mullica Hill braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools at Bowen Family Orthodontics. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets attached to the teeth and connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with Dr. Bowen.
Mullica Hill Invisalign
Invisalign is incredibly popular with patients and orthodontists in Mullica Hill and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, you’ll need to switch your trays out for the next one in the series every 1-2 weeks as directed by Dr. Bowen.
The Invisalign system can only work if you follow the recommended guidelines exactly! You should wear aligners for 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues but may not be the best option for more complex cases. A free consultation with Dr. Bowen at Bowen Family Orthodontics in Mullica Hill will allow us to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
