The Basics of Orthodontics
The Advantages of Orthodontic Treatment
At DeMille Mackay Dental In West Valley City
Subtle Orthodontic Methods
Our dentists offer clear brackets, retainers, and Invisalign® aligners that are virtually undetectable, so you will not have to be self-conscious about unsightly metal braces. Our wide range of options can treat mild to severe cases of misalignment with the same efficacy as a traditional treatment.
Invisalign trays are generally more comfortable than braces. They exert less pressure on your teeth, and they will not irritate the inside of your lips. Aligner trays are also beneficial for physically active patients who play sports, as they run the risk of damaging traditional brackets and injuring the inside of their mouths.
More Affordable Prices
In many cases, treatment is covered or partially covered by insurance. Our Utah practice also extends affordable financing for your out-of-pocket expenses. In certain cases, aligner trays may work even faster than standard braces, reducing the length of treatment and the overall cost of the procedure.
Emphasis on Comprehensive Care
Drs. Christopher DeMille and Parker DeMille provide more than aesthetic treatment for straighter teeth. We focus on your overall oral health and correct any issues with your tooth and jaw alignment that could be painful down the road. Your dentist will examine your digital X-rays to uncover hidden problems that can be addressed in conjunction with visible flaws.

Do I Need to Wear Braces? Invisalign Provides Discreet Orthodontic Treatment
The state-of-the-art Invisalign system is suitable for a wide range of orthodontic concerns. To begin your treatment, your dentist or orthodontist will take impressions of your teeth with a digital scanner and use them to design your custom plastic trays. The resulting images will be manipulated with high-tech software to contour the aligner trays to fit your teeth. Invisalign technicians will then craft the transparent plastic trays with maximum precision so they can gently reposition your smile.
While Invisalign is effective for mild to moderate orthodontic issues, it may not be appropriate if you have severely misaligned teeth. When you meet with one of our dentists for a consultation at our West Valley City, UT, practice, we can determine if Invisalign is suitable for you.
Invisalign vs. Braces
Both Invisalign and braces can be great options to move your teeth into optimal position, so choosing between the two can be difficult. However, certain factors can make one better suited than the other to meet your needs.
Benefits of Invisalign Compared With Braces:
- You can clean your teeth like normal
- No dietary restrictions during treatment
- Nearly invisible appearance
- Less pressure on your teeth
- Less frequent appointments
Drawbacks of Invisalign Compared With Braces:
- Have to remember to wear them for 22 hours a day
- Cannot fix complex misalignment issues
- Mild tooth soreness when removed
- May have a longer treatment timeline
- Can't drink anything but water while wearing them
Braces exert more force on your teeth than Invisalign aligners, making them an excellent choice for patients with severe misalignment. This treatment can also be a great option for younger patients who may have trouble remembering to put their aligners back in after meals.
Benefits of Braces Compared With Invisalign:
- Fixed to your teeth, cannot be misplaced
- Can fix complex misalignment issues
- Generally faster treatment times
- Less daily responsibility
- No extra planning around mealtimes
Drawbacks of Braces Compared With Invisalign:
- Some dietary restrictions
- Wires and brackets can irritate gums and lips
- More noticeable
- More difficult to brush and floss effectively
- More frequent appointments
