What is Hybrid Braces/Aligners Treatment?
Start with braces and finish with clear aligners
Hybrid Braces/Aligners is the first of its kind treatment offering a Doctor controlled orthodontic treatment called Hybrid Braces. By utilizing a hybrid mix of high tech braces and/or clear tooth aligners (called 365Aligners™), patients receive treatment in a dramatically short period of time (6-12 months), at a FRACTION of the cost, and always finish their treatment using a set of clear tooth aligners. Because our Providers now have their own onsite 3D aligner labs, we can offer this service minus the lab expense of Invisalign. The Orthodontists who created this as an alternative to full braces or Invisalign are now passing the savings DIRECTLY TO YOU, our patients. We believe “Hybrid Braces” and 365Aligners™ are the perfect balance between cost and effective tooth aligner treatment. It’s an excellent option for both teenagers and adults.
Braces are used by your orthodontist to help you improve the look and feel of your smile. There are several different types of braces to choose from, including:
– Traditional metal braces
– Clear braces
– Ceramic braces
– Lingual braces
– Self-ligating braces
– Invisible braces
Children who grow up with crooked or buck teeth often face ridicule that leads to insecurities. Unfortunately, the bias doesn’t seem to disappear with adolescence. Either way – whether braces are medically necessary or cosmetically necessary – both are good reasons to give your child braces
If your child is getting regular dental visits, your dentist will be able to determine when it’s time for minor intervention or a full evaluation for braces. Here are some signs that a child is likely to benefit from braces: Early, late, or irregular loss of baby teeth. Difficulty in chewing or biting.
Patients with orthodontic problems can benefit from treatment at nearly any age. An ideal time for placement of braces is between 10 and 14 years of age, while the head and mouth are still growing and teeth are more conducive to straightening.
Braces do not often hurt though you may feel a small amount of discomfort for a couple days as your teeth, gums, cheeks, and mouth get used to your new braces.
Yes! In fact, it’s even more important that patients receiving orthodontic treatment visit their dentist regularly. With braces, food may be caught in places that your toothbrush can’t reach. This causes bacteria to build up that can lead to cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease. Your dentist will work closely with your orthodontist to make sure that your teeth stay clean and healthy while wearing braces.
Clear aligners are an effective alternative to traditional braces, because they use a system of clear, removable trays used to straighten teeth. Each aligner is custom-made to fit over your teeth and is designed to gradually move teeth into their proper position. Using clear aligners for orthodontic treatment is not for everyone. The best way to find out if clear aligners are the right option for you is to schedule a consultation with your orthodontist.
Clear aligners are used as an alternative to traditional braces, and are designed to help guide teeth into proper position. Just like braces, clear aligners use gradual force to control tooth movement, but without any metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made with a strong plastic material that has been fabricated to fit your mouth. As treatment progresses you switch aligners. Each aligner is a little different, so your teeth move a little more with every change.
Aligners are worn for at least 20 hours each day, and you’ll receive a new aligner every two weeks. The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case, and treatment can take anywhere from six months to two years.
