Clear aligners are perfect for many teens and adults, and Dr. Gleason uses them to correct a wide range of orthodontic issues for patients around Webster, NY. Unlike traditional braces, comfortable, clear aligners like those from Spark® and Clear Confidence (our in-house brand) offer you a flexible option.
Clear ceramic braces will blend in with your natural smile and give you confidence throughout your treatment process at Gleason Orthodontics. They’re more prone to chipping, so Dr. Gleason typically recommends clear braces for older teen and adult patients.
Orthodontics for All Ages
At Gleason Orthodontics, orthodontics is for more than just teenagers! Adults and children around Webster also see us for orthodontic treatment to reach healthier, straighter smiles.
Straighten Your Smile
Orthodontic appliances are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. They may be removable or they may be brackets bonded to the teeth. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to the proper position.
Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can now choose clear or metal brackets and, in some cases, the color of your appliance.
Wires are far less noticeable, and the latest materials are designed to move teeth faster with more comfort. Today, any age is a great age to wear braces!
Metal Braces & Clear Aligners
While braces are incredibly popular, you can choose from other options at our office in Webster. After your first free consultation exam, Dr. Gleason will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances
At Gleason Orthodontics, we believe you should be fully educated when it comes to your treatment. It’s helpful for patients around Webster to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances before starting treatment.
Dr. Gleason attaches fixed appliances, like braces, to your teeth and won’t take them off until you complete your treatment in our office.
When Dr. Gleason prescribes a removable appliance (like the clear aligner systems from Spark® and Clear Confidence), you’ll wear the trays most of the day. However, you may take them out any time if you need to eat, drink (anything other than water), or for special occasions.
Other than the noticeable differences, Gleason Orthodontics uses clear aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Dr. Gleason generally uses fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
How Long Does Orthodontic Treatment Take?
Treatment time varies and can last between one and three years, depending on several factors including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case is. A big factor in a successful treatment is you!
The more involved and diligent you are, the more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving interceptive or early treatment can also help provide a quicker treatment time.
Before beginning your orthodontic care, your doctor will discuss all of your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Don’t hesitate to reach out to Gleason Orthodontics to schedule your free consultation to learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.
