At Northern Virginia Orthodontics, we understand that Invisalign and Invisalign for Kids might not be the perfect fit for everyone. That’s why we offer a no-obligation consultation for our patients. This means that if, after your consultation, you decide that Invisalign treatment isn’t right for you or your child, you’re under no obligation to accept the proposed treatment plan.
What Happens If I Don’t Want Invisalign After A Consultation
We believe that it’s important to explore all of your options before making a decision about your orthodontic care. That’s why our experienced orthodontists will provide you with information about other treatment options that may be available to you based on your individual needs and preferences. We want you to feel confident and informed about your choices.
Alternative Options To Invisalign
It’s important to remember that while Invisalign is a great option for many patients, it’s not the only option. There are alternative treatments available that may better fit your lifestyle, budget, or treatment goals. Your orthodontist can discuss these alternatives with you and help you make an informed decision about your orthodontic care.
So whether you decide to move forward with Invisalign or explore other options, we’re here to support you every step of the way. Our goal is to help you achieve the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve in a way that works best for you.
Traditional Metal Braces
Get ready to add some color to your life! Traditional metal braces are composed of three key parts: brackets, an archwire, and ligature elastics (also known as rubber bands). The elastic bands come in a wide range of colors, which can be changed at every appointment, allowing you to switch up the look of your braces and express your personality. With so many options to choose from, you can match the elastics to your favorite sports team, your school colors, or even the season. These colorful elastics add a fun touch to your orthodontic treatment and serve an important function by helping to hold the archwire in place and apply gentle pressure to your teeth, ultimately moving them into their desired position.
Damon braces are a great choice for those looking for a more discreet, comfortable, and low-maintenance orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces, Damon braces utilize a slide mechanism to hold the wire in place, allowing for smoother and more comfortable tooth movement. This innovative system also allows teeth to move more efficiently and quickly, resulting in shorter treatment times overall. Plus, because Damon braces are easier to clean than traditional braces, they require less upkeep and maintenance, making them a convenient and hassle-free option for patients looking to improve their smile.
Self-ligating braces use the same materials as traditional metal braces but with a unique design that eliminates the need for elastics. This can create a different appearance that some patients find appealing, especially adults who may be seeking a more subtle look. Without the need for elastic ties, self-ligating braces can also make oral hygiene easier, as there are fewer nooks and crannies where food particles and plaque can get trapped. Additionally, because the brackets are designed to move more freely along the archwire, self-ligating braces may require fewer adjustments and appointments than traditional braces, potentially shortening the overall treatment time.
