Hildebrand Exclusive Mini Braces
At Hildebrand Orthodontics, we believe in offering only the newest, smallest braces that are more comfortable and give faster treatment results at the same cost as any other braces. Our mini metal braces are the most amazing thing since sliced bread! Old-fashioned traditional braces, which most orthodontists use, take much longer to treat cases. Dr. Jed decided to use only the latest technology in braces by offering mini braces to all his patients at no additional cost. Our mini braces are 50% smaller than traditional braces, which help speed up treatment times by six months!
Mini braces are more comfortable than traditional braces. Made of high-grade stainless steel, mini metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Mini braces do not go around the tooth so you can avoid cavities and other dental problems associated with that type of braces. You also have the choice of choosing colored elastics for a more personalized look, or stick with the clear or silver ties that blend well with the mini fast braces and look amazing.
Sometimes Dr. Jed will prescribe self-ligating braces, which are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of the color bands, which many people prefer. They are the same size as traditional metal braces, which are bulkier than the mini braces and could slow down treatment.
Mini Clear (Ceramic) Braces
Dr. Jed now offers mini clear braces! They are provided at the same cost as metal mini braces and have the same treatment time frame. Mini fast clear braces work just like our metal mini braces with the benefit of being less noticeable and blending into the tooth color. Patients love that people do not recognize they have braces!
The great thing about clear braces is the teeth are moved into the correct position by Dr. Jed at each visit. This gives him greater flexibility in adjusting your treatment to achieve your ideal result in the prescribed treatment time. Most treatment with clear mini braces can be completed in just 18 months!
Clear Aligners (Invisalign®)
Clear aligners are perfect for patients who want the least noticeable product and don't mind taking the aligners in and out during the day. Clear aligners work great for moving teeth—the movements are predesigned on the computer to be safe and effective. Ideally, this treatment is for patients who need minor movements to achieve a perfect smile.
Since patients who choose clear aligner treatment often need less tooth movement, treatment times are short, nine to 18 months on average, with only a few in-office appointments to keep adults and children from missing school and work.
Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth and are therefore “invisible” when you smile. They are not as effective as traditional braces and on rare occasions can be prescribed to patients.
We offer all our patients the wonderful clear retainers that hold their teeth straight and help protect from grinding at night. Bonded retainers are offered at the end of treatment because Dr. Jed knows all the hard work and effort patients put into getting their teeth straight, and we want to keep them straight with the best possible retainer on the market.
Dr. Jed is proud to offer all his patients this unique new gold chain that is the best retainer on the market.
