Sussex County Orthodontics

Looking for the best orthodontist in Sussex County? You’ll want to choose an experienced provider who offers a wide range of braces for adults, teens, and children. Finding an orthodontic office that works with your insurance can minimize your costs and make getting braces as affordable as possible!

Depending on what types of braces you’re looking for, here are the three most popular orthodontic treatments we provide at Southern Delaware Dental Specialists:

Traditional Braces

Conventional braces use metal bracket and wire systems to straighten teeth. They’re appropriate for all ages and work well for minor to severe cases. Whether you’re hoping to close up a small gap between teeth or have severe misalignment, traditional braces will nearly always be an option.

Younger patients typically enjoy getting to choose colorful elastics for their braces, adding flare for holidays, school events, and more. Adults who prefer a more subtle appearance can opt for something more conservative.

Invisible (Clear) Aligners

Invisalign orthodontics are one of the most proven and effective aligner systems available. Instead of wearing braces, you’re fitted with a series of removable aligners that snap over your teeth. Invisalign is so translucent that it’s difficult to see the trays during everyday social interactions.

Even though Invisalign was designed for adults, we’ve found that Sussex County Invisalign Teen is also extremely popular!

With Invisalign, you’re able to cut down on the number of appointments you need, making them easier to fit into your busy lifestyle. They’re great for on-the-go parents and working professionals.

Lingual Braces

If you were to take traditional braces, slightly shrink them, and then place them on the tongue-side surface of your teeth, you would have lingual braces. They’re called “lingual” braces because they’re on the side of your tooth next to your tongue (the lingual surface.)

Lingual braces offer all of the same advantages of traditional orthodontics, except they’re completely hidden from view. They’re about as “invisible” as you can get when it comes to correcting tooth misalignment, crowding, and gaps.

Which Braces are Right for Me?

More than likely, you can choose one or two different types of braces for your individual needs. Some are designed for addressing complex cases. Others for optimal aesthetics. The only way to know which ones are best for your teeth is to meet with an approved dentist or orthodontist for an evaluation. Together, the two of you can determine what braces you qualify for and the pros and cons of each.

Once you have all of the information you need, you’ll be able to make an educated decision about your smile’s future. It’s never too late to invest in Sussex County orthodontics!  We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.
