Traditional braces are an effective and popular orthodontic option. The metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These parts work together through regular adjustments to apply gentle pressure, which will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
Prosper braces are a great choice for fixing many tooth issues, both simple and complex. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. Braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, which makes Prosper braces an affordable orthodontic option if you’re on a budget.
Invisalign is an incredibly popular option with both patients and orthodontics and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces. The Prosper Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment instead of brackets and bands.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign works best for mild to moderate oral problems. For certain complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Hemphill Orthodontics will help you find out your eligibility for Invisalign.
