Jackson & Charlotte Braces

Braces in Jackson and Charlotte, Michigan, offer an excellent solution for correcting complex tooth issues. These traditional braces can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps, potentially reducing overall treatment time. Plus, they are a cost-effective orthodontic option.

Traditional metal braces consist of brackets affixed to the teeth, connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These components work together to apply gentle pressure, gradually moving the teeth into their desired positions. Regular adjustments with Dr. Backinger are key to successful treatment.

Invisalign in Jackson & Charlotte

Invisalign is a highly popular alternative to traditional braces in Jackson and Charlotte, Michigan. This system utilizes clear, removable aligners to gently straighten your teeth. Crafted from comfortable plastic material, Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth.

To achieve the best results, patients should switch to a new set of aligners every one to two weeks, as directed by Dr. Backinger. It's crucial to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day during treatment to ensure optimal progress.

Invisalign is exceptionally effective at correcting many common orthodontic issues. However, for complex cases, it may not be suitable. A free consultation with Dr. Backinger at Summit Orthodontics in Jackson or Charlotte will help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
