Although orthodontics encompasses a wide array of treatment options. The most common recommendations Dr. Schuster may make after an initial consultation are:
Once all or most of the permanent teeth are in, braces and sometimes an appliance/retainer along with braces will be to used to correct tooth and jaw alignment.
Occasionally a problem with tooth or jaw alignment may be easier to correct and/or will be more stable if it is addressed while some permanent teeth, but many baby teeth are still present. In this case, Dr. Schuster may recommend braces and/or an appliance/retainer to correct the problem. Comprehensive orthodontics may still be needed later on once all of the permanent teeth are in the mouth.
Traditional metal braces:
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used. They are made with a high-grade stainless steel and are smaller and smoother than ever. Colored ties (rubber bands) can be added to these metal braces to make them fun and colorful.
Ceramic braces are used when aesthetics is a concern. Ceramic brackets are now made to color-match tooth enamel for optimal aesthetics and are easier than ever to remove.
Invisalign® is a series of removal aligners that align your teeth just like braces. Because the aligners are removable, you can eat whatever you like and brushing and flossing are much easier.
