Braces & Clear Aligners | Logan & Hyrum
Modern Treatments for Every Smile
At Guymon Orthodontics, we cater treatment to your unique needs. We also believe in the importance of new technology and research in the orthodontic field.
Below are the modern and comfortable treatments we offer at our offices in Logan and Hyrum. Dr. Guymon and our friendly team will gladly help you discover which option fits you best.
Clear aligner treatment uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays to straighten your teeth gradually (like braces). Dr. Guymon will show you a projection picture of your final results after a 3D scan of your mouth and monitor your progress from start to finish.
Clear aligners are removable, allowing you to eat and drink what you want during treatment and making brushing and flossing less problematic. Best of all, the aligners feel comfortable.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are less visible on your teeth. For this reason, ceramic braces are very popular with older teenagers and adult patients with cosmetic concerns.
While they are visually less prominent, they require more oral hygiene attention, as ceramic braces are larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts. Dr. Guymon uses ceramic braces more on the upper front than lower teeth.
Traditional braces are more effective at treating extreme overcrowding and are more affordable than other options. They give Dr. Guymon the control he needs to move your teeth in small increments.
Today’s metal braces are more visually appealing with a range of color options for the brackets and elastics. Wearing this type of braces also means you don’t have to worry about misplacing your aligners.
Straighten Your Smile
Dr. Guymon pairs cutting-edge tech with the skill of moving teeth. This helps Guymon Orthodontics successfully treat many dental issues, like:
- Gaps between your teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Protruding teeth
- Impacted teeth
You Have Options
Many people around Logan and Hyrum think that metal braces are the only way to get a straighter smile. At Guymon Orthodontics, you have options including clear braces and clear aligners.
During your first free consultation exam, Dr. Guymon will discuss which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances
At Guymon Orthodontics, we believe you should be fully educated regarding your treatment. It’s helpful for patients around Logan and Hyrum to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.
Dr. Guymon attaches fixed appliances, like braces, to your teeth and won’t take them off until you complete your treatment at Guymon Orthodontics.
When Dr. Guymon prescribes a removable appliance like 3M’s Clarity aligner system, you’ll wear your trays most of the day, but you can take them out of your mouth.
Besides the obvious differences, Guymon Orthodontics uses clear aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems and fixed appliances for severe, comprehensive treatment.
