Now that we are all getting back into the grind of busy schedules, homework and upcoming events, what is the one thing on everyone’s mind? Looking good and feeling better. With school pictures, homecomings, and late night bonfires, making sure you have a picture perfect smile for a frame or an Instagram-worthy photo can make all the difference in how you look and your level of self-confidence.
Routine trips to the dentist for regular maintenance like a cleaning or a checkup is important, however, the real issues tend to fall by the wayside. Exploring alternative options for improving your smile and building confidence is just as important as proper oral hygiene.

Braces & Invisalign
No smile is complete without perfect form and structure. Realigning your teeth has now improved and Dr. Jacquie offers multiple techniques to perfect your smile. The more traditional form of teeth realignment is braces for kids, teens and adults. This method is to help improve jaw alignment, close up unattractive gaps and/or realign crooked, crowded teeth.
Typical treatment that includes this orthodontic appliance can be made of ceramic, metal or plastic. These devices can be made to be removable or a form brackets that are bonded to the teeth for extensive treatment. With the application of constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, teeth will slowly and gradually be shifted into the correct position. Treatment time ranges depending on the patient’s needs, typically between one to three years. However, in some less serious cases, realignment improvements can be completed in as little as six months if the patient follows through with each step effectively.
Invisalign, a state of the art alternative to braces, have grown rapidly in popularity in recent years. This virtually undetectable form of “braces” help straighten teeth without brackets and wires. Using a series of clear, customized removable aligners, you can have a perfect smile anywhere between 12-48 aligners, depending on the severity of the candidate’s case.
This form of “braces” has been considered more convenient due to the fact that they are removable. Since they are not permanent metal fixtures on the teeth, Invisalign users can remove them when they eat, brush or floss.
