Traditional Braces in Cincinnati, OH
At Thacker Orthodontics, we offer traditional braces, a time-tested and highly efficient method for straightening teeth and correcting jaw alignment. Our braces consist of either metal or ceramic brackets attached to your teeth, linked by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. During regular adjustment appointments, our skilled orthodontists expertly manipulate these components to apply gentle, consistent pressure. This methodical approach gradually guides your teeth into their ideal positions.
One of the key advantages of traditional braces is their ability to address complex dental issues effectively. Often, they can close gaps and align teeth more quickly than alternative methods, potentially shortening the overall treatment duration. Additionally, traditional braces are a cost-effective solution, requiring less complex technology and equipment than some newer orthodontic treatments.
Invisalign: A Clear Path to Alignment in Cincinnati, OH
For those seeking a more discreet orthodontic solution, Thacker Orthodontics proudly offers the Invisalign system. This innovative treatment uses a series of clear, removable aligners, custom-made from a comfortable plastic material, to progressively align your teeth. You'll transition to a new set of aligners approximately every one to two weeks, ensuring continuous and directed movement of your teeth.
Patient commitment is crucial to the success of Invisalign. For optimal results, aligners should be worn for 20-22 hours daily throughout the treatment period. Non-compliance can hinder progress and extend the duration of the orthodontic process. While Invisalign is highly effective for a wide range of common orthodontic issues, it may not be suitable for more complex cases. Our free consultation at Thacker Orthodontics will assess your suitability for Invisalign treatment.
