Tuscaloosa Braces & Invisalign: the Right Treatment for You
The team at RiverView Orthodontics team understands that your smile is very important.
We offer a variety of treatment options, and we can find the best one to fit your lifestyle. There are options for patients of all ages and prices to fit many budgets.
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient and effective orthodontic tools in use. First, we attach the metal or ceramic brackets to your teeth. Then, we connect the brackets with wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
Through regular adjustments with Dr. Upton, these parts work together to apply gentle pressure, gradually moving the teeth where we want them to go. Tuscaloosa braces are a superb choice for fixing many tooth issues, both simple and complex.
Instead of brackets and bands, the Tuscaloosa Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to slowly but consistently move the teeth into alignment. This option is popular with both patients and orthodontists and is the top alternative to traditional braces.
