Doctor Bill Ligon on orthodontics options
We have several different options for orthodontics. One of the main things that we do is a product called Six Month Smiles. It’s actually braces, the bands and brackets that go on your teeth, but the brackets themselves are tooth-colored, so it’s not so noticeable – or actually, they’re clear. The wires are tooth-colored, so it’s not a really noticeable procedure. We do a lot of patients, believe it or not, that are 40, 50 years old.
We got a lady in braces right now that’s 54 years old. She just started about a month ago. She’s always had crooked teeth, and she wants her smile to be nice and straight, and we’re able to achieve that. We also do ClearCorrect. If you want like an Invisalign-type product, we do that as well, something that you can take in and out of your mouth, but we’ve had great, great results. We do a lot of orthodontics here, and most of the time, it’s highly successful in making a patient’s smile better.
