Invisible Aligners Downriver, MI
Clear aligner therapy involves a series of trays that are made with computer-imaging technology. Invisible clear aligners address mild teeth misalignment (malocclusion). Aligners must be worn 22 hours every day to ensure that tooth movement progresses properly. Your teeth will move slowly as you sequentially replace aligners about every two to four weeks. Composite-bonded attachments help aligner retention and facilitate certain tooth movements. Interproximal reduction, or removal of enamel between the teeth, is a common requirement during clear aligner treatment. The treatment time and number of aligners depends on the severity of the malocclusion. Complex tooth movements usually require the addition of fixed appliances or dental braces.
While clear aligner options (like Invisalign and Clear Correct) appeal to many adults for aesthetic reasons, traditional braces are still far more accurate and effective at straightening crooked teeth, especially for patients with more severe malocclusion. They also give Dr. Lupini finer adjustment control as your teeth begin moving and throughout your treatment period. Traditional braces will also reduce the amount of your appointments.

Ceramic Braces Downriver, MI
As technology evolves, so do your options for straightening teeth. You’ll find all of today’s best bracing and teeth straightening options at True Orthodontics, where Dr. John Lupini uses the latest innovations in orthodontic treatment to give his patients the best care and results.
Ceramic braces are similar to traditional braces in design, however they are less noticeable because they are white or clear in color. They are made from high-quality ceramics that are stronger and look more natural and less obvious to others.
Dr. Lupini uses the highest-quality ceramic braces for children and adult braces. These are much smaller when compared to previous designs. Also, most wires used contain titanium and titanium alloys, which allow for more continuous (gentle) forces placed on the teeth and actually produce more efficient and shorter treatments. These same wires are available with a tooth-colored coating to help them blend in when used with ceramic/tooth-colored braces. Get evaluated at True Orthodontics serving Downriver, MI.
