Types of Braces

A straight smile is one fundamental cornerstone of your child’s dental health. Not only that, but rectifying orthodontic issues early on can also help improve his or her confidence and be less costly in the long run. Thanks to cutting-edge technology, Carvalho & Roth Orthodontics offers several solutions to fix common tooth alignment problems and improve teeth’s appearance and function.

Treatment Begins With Early Screening

Many orthodontic issues start early in life, so screening your child at a young age helps our dentists diagnose problems right away and recommend a proper course of treatment. That’s especially true for children whose adult molars are emerging, which usually occurs at around seven years old. Since their jawbones are still growing, it’s easier to solve common orthodontic challenges such as:

  • Crowding, caused by a lack of room in the jawbone
  • Open bites, in which the upper and lower incisors (front teeth) do not touch
  • Crossbites, a problem with misalignment between upper and lower dental arches
  • Overbites, in which the upper arch extends over the lower arch

Invisalign: A Cutting-Edge Straightening Method

Carvalho & Roth offers Invisalign and Invisalign Teen in Marlborough, Newton Centre, Northborough and surrounding communities. As an innovative alternative to standard braces, it straightens teeth using a series of clear alignment trays. Two other vital advantages are that they’re comfortable to wear and you don’t have to steer clear of eating certain foods. Merely remove the aligners before eating or drinking anything but water and brush afterward!

Metal Braces for Your Child

When most people think of braces, metal braces are what come to mind. Although they look very similar to what you would find back in the day. Modern metal braces are slimmer, more accurate, and less noticeable than ever before! However, they do have the same restrictions as the did when you were young. While wearing braces, you should avoid hard, sticky, and sugary foods to make sure brackets don't become dislodged, or wires fall out of place.

Clear Braces

Modern advancements in both the durability and clarity of polymers now allow our orthodontists in Northborough to provide patients with a more elegant solution to traditional metal braces. Clear braces are made from a ceramic polymer that blends in with the teeth revealing only a thin metal archwire across the teeth. Clear braces offer the same treatment flexibility of metal braces just in a more discreet package. Clear braces, however, are slightly more expensive than metal braces and can become discolored if not properly taken care of.
