Braces in Calera
Braces in Calera are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, braces can reduce your overall treatment time.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with Dr. Reid.
Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, so they’re a cost-effective orthodontic option at Calera Orthodontics.

Invisalign in Calera
Invisalign is incredibly popular with patients and orthodontists in Calera and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth gradually.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. You'll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks, as directed by Dr. Reid, to keep your teeth moving in the right direction.
The Invisalign system can only work if you follow the recommended guidelines! You'll wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If you neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Reid at Calera Orthodontics in Calera will help us determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
