Dentistry by Doctor Kaplansky
Gasport, NY Dentist, Dr. Kaplansky Helps His Patients Navigate Orthodontic Options
Orthodontics refers specifically to the adjustment and straightening of the teeth. Dr. Kaplansky offers multiple forms of orthodontic care to his Gasport patients, along with other comprehensive and advanced dentistry services. For some of those patients, the best type of orthodonture isn’t always clear choice. Dr. Kaplansky wants his orthodontic patients to fully understand their options.
Modern orthodontics, like those offered at Dr, Kaplansky’s dentistry, can be categorized into two types. The first type is known as traditional braces, which are comprised of various components that are gradually tightened to move the teeth into a desired alignment. Traditional braces may be modified through additional pieces such as headgear, plates and expansions, making them very versatile for a variety of patient needs. Dr. Kaplansky’s younger patients often enjoy how traditional braces can be customized with special features and colored components that make them feel unique. The other type of orthodontics is plastic aligners. Most people are familiar with the brand Invisalign, which are made of clear plastic and fit over the row of teeth. These aligners are updated every few weeks and gradually move the teeth into a projected position. Unlike traditional braces they are clear and nearly invisible.
Both traditional braces and cosmetically invisible tooth aligners have their own unique advantages and care requirements;
