Braces for Patients of All Ages in Southwestern Michigan
At Richard L. Beckermeyer, D.D.S., PC, we offer a range of braces options. The most popular choice is our traditional metal braces, which can be personalized with colored rubber bands of your choosing. We also offer ceramic braces, which are translucent and therefore more popular among older patients. No matter what style of braces you choose, we will create a treatment plan customized to your individual needs, teeth alignment and jaw bone structure. We will ensure that when the braces come off, you will have an aligned, beautiful and healthy smile!
Invisalign® is a system of computer-generated aligners that gently move teeth into the proper position over a period of time. Invisalign® is also popular among older patients because the aligners are invisible and removable for brushing your teeth and eating. The patient wears each aligner for two weeks before moving on to the next set. The aligners are custom-created to snugly fit your teeth and to gradually shift them into place.
After your braces are removed or your Invisalign® process is complete, we will provide you with a set of retainers. Retainers are essential for ensuring that your beautifully aligned teeth don’t shift back into their original position. We generally recommend patients wear their retainers for at least two years.
