Orthodontics: Braces and More in Burlington

Sometimes brushing and flossing aren’t enough to maintain a healthy smile. Teeth can come out crooked or become misaligned often requiring a different kind of dental procedure – orthodontics. Gardner Dental Group offers both traditional braces for teeth straightening and Invisalign®. Burlington residents have relied on our clinic for orthodontics!

It’s understandable to have questions about teeth straightening services. Whether you require this procedure for yourself or your children, Gardner Dental Group will work with you to find the right solution. We are ready to discuss the options and what they entail, whether you should choose to wear traditional braces or Invisalign® aligners. Call us to schedule your appointment today!

Metal Braces - Traditional Orthodontics in Burlington 

Depending on the type of corrections a patient needs or previous dental work, metal braces may be the answer for those who cannot use Invisalign®. At Gardner Dental Group, we provide traditional orthodontics to Burlington residents. These fixed orthodontics help remodel bone structure in the mouth and function as a non-surgical option for patients who have more complex teeth straightening needs. Traditional metal braces are attached to your teeth using a series of wires and are tightened on a regular basis, forcing your teeth and jawline to sit straighter. Metal braces can be worn by children, teens, and adults.

Invisalign® might not be for everyone. However, it is an effective way of straightening your teeth with the help of virtually invisible, removable plastic aligners.Click here to learn more about Invisalign®.

Invisalign® or Braces? What Method Is Best for You?

So which method of teeth straightening is best for you? At Gardner Dental Group, you start off with a consultation with Dr. Metias. After taking impressions and moulds of your teeth, we evaluate whether or not Invisalign® or traditional braces are best suited for your needs. There are many pros and cons to both methods. For example, patients who play rough contact sports might want to avoid metal braces. On the other hand, patients who have bridgework, back tooth issues, or other complex dental problems should not consider Invisalign®. Metal braces don’t require extra cleaning steps; all you need to do is brush and floss regularly. Invisalign® trays have to be removed and brushed to keep them from staining. For those concerned about the appearance of your smile, Invisalign® is often the better choice because of its plastic, nearly invisible aligner trays.
