Traditional Braces: Still a Reliable Choice

While orthodontics has expanded significantly in recent years, traditional metal braces remain a tried-and-true solution for correcting various dental alignment issues. At Downtown Dental Group, we offer the latest advancements in conventional braces, ensuring maximum comfort and an improved aesthetic appearance throughout treatment. 

Metal braces are highly effective in addressing complex orthodontic problems, and with their enhanced comfort and discreet designs, they continue to be a popular choice for many patients in the Manhattan area.young woman holding Invisalign clear aligner tray

Clear Aligners: The Discreet Alternative

For patients seeking a more discreet orthodontic treatment, clear aligner therapy has emerged as a popular choice. These virtually invisible, removable aligners allow you to achieve a straighter smile without the visibility of metal brackets and wires.

The team at Downtown Dental Group is well-versed in the latest clear aligner technologies and can help determine if this option is the best fit for your orthodontic needs. Clear aligners offer a range of benefits, including improved comfort, the ability to maintain better oral hygiene during treatment, and a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Lingual Braces: Hidden Behind the Teeth

If you desire an even more discreet orthodontic solution, lingual braces may be the answer. These customized braces are placed on the inside of your teeth, making them completely hidden from view.

Lingual braces offer the same level of effectiveness as traditional braces but with the added benefit of being virtually invisible. While they may require a slightly longer adjustment period, the team at Downtown Dental Group can guide you through the process and ensure your comfort throughout the treatment.

Self-Ligating Braces: Reducing Treatment Time

Another innovative option that can help shorten your orthodontic journey is self-ligating braces. These specialized braces use a unique mechanism that reduces friction and allows for faster tooth movement, often resulting in a reduced treatment time compared to conventional braces. Self-ligating braces also tend to be more comfortable and easier to keep clean, making them an attractive choice for many patients in Manhattan.
