Sumner Clear Braces
We specialize in orthodontic treatments using the most technologically advanced appliances and procedures.
While clear braces function much like traditional metal braces, these are a few reasons why they are the optimal choice for many:
- Aesthetics – clear braces blend in with natural tooth color
- Use of adhesive bracket braces vs. epoxy is more gentle
- Reduced risk of cavities with use of adhesive that protects enamel
- High quality material with good strength characteristics
- In general, clear braces do not stain but ligatures can be prone to stains
During your consultation we can help you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of clear braces versus metal braces.
Call our office to discuss your options, and to learn more about the benefits of clear braces.
Sumner Teeth Aligners
The use of teeth aligners can be used as an effective substitute for braces to make minor teeth corrections.
We offer teeth aligners in Sumner that are a series of custom-built mouthpieces for patients with minimal or moderately crowded teeth, or minor spacing issues without the use of brackets or wires.
Simply stated, teeth aligners are produced from clear plastic and molded to fit tightly on the teeth in a manner similar to a mouth guard. They are custom created to correct:
- Minor tooth displacement
- Misaligned teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Tooth rotation
- Tooth intrusion or extrusion
Teeth aligners are usually worn from one to years with scheduled replacements as the teeth gradually move into proper alignment. They are reliable and durable, and have no protruding parts subject to breakage.
Call the office of W. Brent Nash, DDS, for a consultation to determine if teeth aligners are the best option for you. (253) 299-9211
