Online shopping seems to get bigger and bigger each year. The number of items you can purchase online blows our minds! Who knew there would be a day when you could purchase every item for your home, including a mattress, and never have to leave your home? Although ordering online can be convenient, there are some items that are best purchased in person. One in particular is orthodontics.
At The Best Braces, we are always looking for ways to improve the treatments we provide to our patients. One aspect of orthodontic care that is always progressing and changing is technology. Thanks to digital technology, the treatments we offer our patients have revolutionized orthodontic care. We are able to offer patients more treatments than ever before, and we have been able to reduce the length of treatment times for many patients.
We are happy to treat patients of all ages in our practice. We want to help children, teens, and adults have straight teeth and a perfect smile. We are proud to offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options to our patients and will help them choose the one that best fits their needs and lifestyle. Two of the most common treatment options we offer are traditional metal braces and clear aligners.

We cannot believe that December has arrived. Many of our patients are busy preparing for the holiday season. While this is a time to visit and celebrate with loved ones, remember to be mindful of your orthodontic hardware. We’ve talked before about which foods to avoid while wearing braces and other hardware. However, there is so much food during this time of year that it can be tempting to indulge, even when you know better. This can be especially difficult for our younger patients, who may not have much restraint.

Would you love to straighten your teeth but have reservations about traditional metal braces? Over the past few years, a different orthodontic option has become extremely popular due to the many benefits it offers patients — clear aligners. Clear aligners use a series of custom-made, clear trays that slowly transition teeth into the desired placement. You may even know someone who was receiving this treatment and you were unaware because it is so discreet. While this treatment is growing in popularity, we still get many questions about clear aligners.
Are you or a loved one about to start on your journey with clear aligners? Many of our patients have mixed emotions when they start their orthodontic treatment. There is excitement over the thought of straight teeth. Patients who are using clear aligners get very excited because they have seen a rendering of what their teeth will look like at the completion of treatment. Patients also feel a bit nervous about what to expect and how teeth will feel during treatment. To help ease your mind, we want to explain what you can expect when you first start clear aligner treatment. Continue reading to learn more.

We were sad to hear patients put their desire for straight teeth aside due to their busy schedule. We now have a solution that is a win-win for all. Continue reading to learn more about this convenient, easy, and fast treatment option.
