Your Lewes Orthodontist
Dr. Johnson graduated from Bucknell University with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and completed his dental education at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. While in dental school, he fell in love with orthodontics and went on to complete an orthodontic residency at Temple University. There he was appointed Chief Resident in the Department of Orthodontics based on his exceptional clinical and leadership skills. He also served as an instructor for undergraduate dental students.
As one of the most efficient orthodontic treatments available, traditional braces aren't going anywhere. The metal or ceramic brackets, which are connected to by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics, are attached to the teeth. When you regularly see Dr. Johnson for adjustment appointments, these parts will work together to apply gentle pressure to your teeth, allowing them to gradually move your teeth where they need to go.
When it comes to correcting just about any tooth issue, whether it's simple or complex, Lewes braces will do a great option. Lewes braces are also a cost-effective option for patients on a budget. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. In addition, braces don't require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can.
The Lewes Invisalign system is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces. This option uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment instead of brackets and bands.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and the virtually invisible designed to fit snugly over your teeth. Dr. Johnson will give you the specifics, but most patients switch their trays out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process. Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job.
Invisalign is at its most effective when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues, and may not be the best option for patients with especially complex cases. A free consultation with Johnson Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
