There are plenty of orthodontics options available in order to obtain straight, beautiful teeth. If you think traditional metal braces are the only choice for correcting crooked and/or crowded teeth, think again. Our Hoboken orthodontics office offers many alternatives to traditional braces, and two of the most popular are Invisalign and DNA Expansion Therapy.
Invisalign involves the use of clear-colored aligner trays that are interchanged over the course of many months and gradually straighten and correct problems with spacing between your teeth.
DNA stands for “Daytime-Nighttime Appliance” and is an innovative orthodontic treatment system that is worn as an appliance only during evening and nighttime hours. Because it’s removable, a DNA appliance does not interfere with eating, and the teeth can be cleaned with a regular toothbrush and dental floss.
There are common benefits of Invisalign and DNA Expansion Therapy:
- Both involve the use of removable aligners
- Neither involves metal brackets or wires that are normally associated with traditional braces
- Both have been described as more comfortable than traditional braces
