Invisalign or Braces?
Do you or your loved one suffer from crooked, overcrowded or even misaligned teeth? Looking for an orthodontic treatment that can address your underbite, overbite or even crossbite?

At Anding Family Dental we understand the importance of a healthy, functional and beautiful smile and would be more than happy to evaluate your smile and overall oral health to determine which treatment option would be best for you.
Dental Braces Omaha, NE
Traditional braces were actually invented in 1728. However, through advancements in dentistry, many modifications have occurred throughout the years. Ultimately, however, orthodontic treatment all has the same purpose, diagnosing, preventing and correcting malpositioned teeth and jaws. Traditional braces are comprised of metal brackets, wires and elastic bands which are used to gently shift a patient’s teeth and/or bite into a more desirable position. Many patients want to avoid the “metal mouth” look often associated with traditional braces which has decreased their popularity in more recent years.
Dental Invisalign Omaha, NE
Invisalign was invented in the 1990s however it wasn’t until recently it become one of the most popular forms of orthodontic treatment. Invisalign much like traditional metal braces are designed to correct malpositioned jaws and teeth. However, the treatment uses clear, plastic aligners making it much more discrete. Invisalign aligners are designed to be removed and actually allow patients to properly eat, drink and clean their smile. We do recommend that patients wear their aligners for at least 22 hours a day however for maximum results. Due to the fact that dental Invisalign in Omaha is virtually invisible, many teen and adult patients prefer Invisalign treatment over other orthodontic options.
