Smile With Confidence With Invisible or Incognito Orthodontics March 9, 2016

Anchorage, Anchorage County
Smile With Confidence With Invisible or Incognito Orthodontics , Anchorage, Alaska

To get orthodontics or not to get orthodontics? It’s an age-old dilemma that leaves many feeling like they have no truly good options. On the one hand, self-confidence suffers when a smile isn’t as straight as you’d like. On the other hand, the metal brackets of traditional braces can make you feel even more self-conscious. 

Family First Dentistry has a solution. Committed to helping you find confidence in your smile, this trusted Anchorage family and cosmetic dentistry practice offers several appealing alternatives to traditional orthodontics. They offer both invisible and incognito braces, so you can align your smile without the unsightly brackets.

Here is a brief overview of their non-traditional orthodontic options:

  • orthodonticsInvisible Braces: Invisalign uses a series of trays to gradually straighten teeth. These trays are as effective as traditional orthodontics, but they're almost imperceptible to the naked eye, so you can straighten your smile without feeling embarrassed about wires and brackets. Because you can remove them whenever necessary, these invisible braces are also far more convenient than traditional braces. You’ll be able to brush and floss like normal, enjoy all of your favorite foods, and remove the trays whenever you want to—just make sure that you follow your dentist's instructions to stay on track with your treatment plan.

  • Incognito Braces: Attached to the back of your teeth, incognito braces are a form of stealth orthodontics. Because they work just like traditional metal braces, differing only in placement, they are just as effective as their less attractive counterparts. By employing advanced technology for custom-fit brackets, incognito braces offer a comfortable fit that creates beautiful results. Unlike invisible braces, this simple, convenient cosmetic dentistry option never needs to be removed or replaced and is a genuine example of worry-free orthodontics.

While both invisible and incognito braces are attractive, effective methods for getting the smile of your dreams, most people find that one or the other is a better fit for their lifestyle. The caring, knowledgeable family dentistry team at Family First Dentistry will work with you to find the perfect orthodontics for your needs.
