Choosing Orthodontics That Are Perfect For You & Your Family

Because every patient feels differently about wearing orthodontics and every smile requires different levels of attention, Gentle Family Dentists provides the following for straightening smiles:

Traditional Braces
Traditional brackets still do an incredible job of straightening teeth. In fact, they allow us more control over your smile’s alignment than other treatments. You won’t have to worry about misplacing removable aligners, and they come in a variety of colors.

Invisalign & ClearCorrect
Invisalign and ClearCorrect aligners share many advantages. They both:

  • Straighten your smile with clear, practically invisible plastic aligners so nobody notices you’re wearing them
  • Gently align your teeth over time to reduce discomfort
  • Work faster than traditional braces, which may need to be worn for two to three years; these short-term orthodontic treatments typically require being worn for only six months to a year
  • Eliminate a lot of maintenance that traditional braces require, since they can be removed while you eat and can be cleaned easily

The differences between the two are:

    • ClearCorrect is usually more affordable
    • ClearCorrect is made in the USA; Invisalign is not
    • Invisalign was already being used to treat patients for 10 years before ClearCorrect was an option
    • Invisalign alignment trays are created at the beginning of your treatment; ClearCorrect trays are made as your treatment progresses

Both options are very popular with patients of all ages. They allow adults to straighten their teeth without worrying about embarrassment at work, and they can do the same for teens who need better dental alignment to ensure good oral health.

This short-term orthodontic option also affords you the benefit of aligning your teeth without metal brackets. Over the course of three months to a year, FastBraces can align your smile. This cosmetic dental treatment requires no extraction of existing teeth to straighten your smile.

Call 563-316-6055 or use our online form to schedule your consultation with Dr. Carol or Dr. Roberto Moreno at our West Liberty, IA or Muscatine, IA dentist office. We’ll make sure your beautifully aligned smile will help you feel better about your appearance and ensure your total oral health. Click here to hear from our patients.
