On the surface, orthodontics—or braces as most people call them—are all about having a straighter smile. And while a straight and more attractive smile is an important goal of having braces, it is by no means the only reason. For example, orthodontics may be needed to correct a malocclusion or improper bite that is causing headaches, stress and jaw pain. At Robison Dental Group, Canton dentist Dr. J.D. Robison offers both traditional orthodontics as well as Invisalign® to not only make smiles more attractive, but healthier, too.

Sometimes, when a parent takes a child to the orthodontist for braces, they see those young teeth becoming straighter and they think, “How about me?” But then they might think, “I don’t need a mouth full of metal at my age.” At Robison Dental Group in Canton, MI, your child can have traditional orthodontics to straighten their teeth, while you have Invisalign® clear braces for yours. The best of both worlds are available in one convenient location with Dr. J.D. Robison.
Braces, of course, are designed to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, an incorrect bite and jaw problems. Traditional braces consist of metal brackets that are secured to the teeth with special dental cement and then connected with a wire. This wire is held in place with bands that now come in a rainbow of colors. So, for younger patients, braces can be a chance to show school spirit or just have fun with color. These braces require scheduled appointments for tightening and changing the wire in order to control the pressure, which moves the teeth into place.
For adults, Invisalign clear braces—as the name implies—straighten teeth almost invisibly. So, if the concern is that having braces might compromise your social or professional life, then Invisalign can allay those concerns. These braces straighten teeth with clear BPA-free plastic aligners. You’ll wear each set of aligners for your upper and lower arches for about two weeks and then move on to the next set. As you progress, you’ll begin to see your teeth gradually straighten. Most patients can complete their treatment with Invisalign in about one year.

As a busy adult, you have a professional image you’ve worked hard to cultivate. But if you’ve been considering braces, you may be worried that you’ll have to sacrifice that image.
How Does Invisalign Work?
As one of the most popular and effective cosmetic services available, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made acrylic aligners to straighten teeth.
To treat your smile, you’ll simply wear each pair for about two weeks. As you move from one pair to the next, your aligners will gradually bring your teeth into their ideal alignment until you reach your goal 12-18 months later. Because Invisalign’s aligners are clear, you can finally achieve your goal of a straighter smile without drawing negative attention to your teeth.
But there’s also another benefit to Invisalign—your aligners are removable.
Why is that so great?
First, because you can take them out for special events, like a party, a dinner with friends, a special meeting at work, and so much more. But even greater than this, because your Invisalign aligners are removable, you can take them out to brush and floss. This is one of Invisalign’s greatest advantages over traditional braces. With traditional braces, the presence of brackets and wires can make it difficult to keep teeth clean, which can result in tooth decay and other problems. But with Invisalign, you can remove your braces to brush and floss, giving your smile the thorough cleansing it needs to stay strong, healthy, and beautiful.
