Traditional braces are a tried-and-true method to correct and resolve for the most challenging orthodontic issues. Traditional braces are composed of square metal brackets adhered to the smiling surfaces of the teeth and wires that are attached to metal bands around the molars. Over time, Twiss Dental will adjust the wires to slowly shift teeth into their correct position, for a healthy bite position and a strong, straight smile.
Traditional braces are a good option if you need to fix:
- Misaligned jaw
- Open bite
- Overcrowded teeth
Dr. Twiss will advise you on whether traditional braces are right for you.

The Invisalign system is one of the most popular teeth straightening procedures, and with good reason! 7.5 million smiles are straighter thanks to the revolutionary orthodontics of the Invisalign system, which works by using a series of clear aligners that slowly shift and straighten the teeth. Aligners are removed to eat, drink, brush, and floss. If you are interested in Invisalign, give us a call and schedule a complimentary consultation with Twiss Dental today!Schedule Now
How Invisalign works
The Invisalign process begins with impressions of your teeth being made so your aligners can be created in a dental lab. The aligners are made of a thermoplastic material that is virtually invisible as well as being strong and flexible to maximize comfort and durability. Aligners need to be worn for 22 hours each day–and every few weeks, wearers will transition to the next set of aligners in the series. Over a period of months, the aligners gradually shift specific teeth. We recommend patients remove their aligners and rinse them with warm water daily. They can also be carefully brushed with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
Why people love Invisalign
- Patients have reported that wearing Invisalign braces are more comfortable than traditional brackets and wires.
- The aligners are clear so no one can tell you are straightening your teeth.
- The removable aligners are only worn for 22 hours a day, so they can be taken out for meals, go on a date, make an important presentation at work, or attend a special event.
- You can brush and floss your teeth as usual–just remove the aligners! No additional tools are needed.
- There is no need to fear stains on your teeth from metal braces.
Invisalign offers a treatment system tailored to the active lifestyles of teenagers. Clear aligners may be a benefit if your teen doesn’t want their need for braces to be obvious, and are also a great option for athletes who may need to wear mouthguards during practices and games. Invisalign Teen aligners have an additional feature–a blue dot to monitor duration of wear, an indicator of compliance with the 22-hour-a-day rule. If you or your teen are interested in Invisalign Teen, call Twiss Dental today to schedule your appointment.Schedule Now
