When people think of braces, they may think of the wires and brackets that are usually associated with traditional braces. Though traditional braces are beneficial to some, others may be wanting a more discreet way of straightening their smile. Though it may seems as though there would be no way you can have the perfectly aligned smile you have always wanted while also looking like your natural self, Dr. Jeffrey Shirck is able to help his patients by offering Invisalign!
Invisalign is a revolutionary piece of dental technology that allows the wearer to be prudent with their treatment. Invisalign works through a series of aligners that are made just for you! Each aligner is indicative of a new stage in your straightening process, and you will receive 18 to 30 of them. The aligner sits nearly invisible on your smile, so people will not know that you are wearing braces!
One of the great advantages about Invisalign is the fact the aligners are removable. If you have to take pictures or have a special occasion, simply remove the aligner! You will also experience better oral health than with traditional braces, for whenever you need to eat, drink, brush, or floss, simply remove the aligner and reapply it when you are finished! You are able to eat whatever you desire with Invisalign, as you do not have to worry about food getting trapped in the wires and brackets as they would with traditional braces.
If you feel as though Invisalign can help perfect your smile and would like to set up a consultation with Dr. Shirck, contact our office, and we would love to help you on your orthodontic journey!

Are you an adult who’s thinking about getting braces? Some adults are uncomfortable with the idea because of the associations a lot of us have about what braces look like and the age of orthodontic patients—we think of teenagers wearing braces with metal brackets and wires.
But the truth is that traditional braces aren’t the only available option. What’s more, close to half of all patients receiving orthodontic care today are adults. With so many other adults receiving treatment with braces, you don’t have to sideline your dream of a healthier, straighter smile.
At Shirck Orthodontics, we have two options that will appeal to adult patients from Westerville, New Albany, and Pataskala.
One of those options is clear braces. Clear braces use brackets and wires, but they’re much less noticeable than traditional braces. What’s more, braces that use brackets and wires are an excellent choice for patients who need more advanced orthodontic care.
Patients who are only looking for cosmetic help will benefit from care with Invisalign. Treatment with Invisalign is even more discreet than with clear braces. That’s because it uses clear trays instead of brackets and wires. On top of this, patients can take their Invisalign trays out to eat and to brush and floss. As a result, you can enjoy all the foods you love and take better care of your teeth.
Do you have questions about clear braces or Invisalign? Call Shirck Orthodontics to schedule a consultation appointment. We’ll be happy to assess your situation and recommend a treatment plan designed around your needs. We serve patients from Westerville, Sunbury, New Albany, Alexandria, Granville, Johnstown, Newark, Blacklick, Reynoldsburg, and beyond.
Comments Off on Adults and Braces

Are you an adult who’s considering braces? Then you might be wondering what type is right for you. Shirck Orthodontics offers a wide range of services to patients from Westerville and beyond.
Two of those services include Invisalign and traditional braces. Many adults want to avoid traditional braces if they can, and that’s understandable. Not every patient is a candidate for a service like Invisalign, though. As great as Invisalign is, it was designed to address small cosmetic issues. For instance, many Invisalign patients wore braces in the past and now need a little help readjusting teeth that have moved out of alignment. Invisalign is perfect for this.
However, patients with more advanced needs will find that traditional braces are still their best option. Thankfully, there are braces that use clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires so that care is more discreet than it might be. By providing clear braces to Westerville patients, Dr. Shirck is able to offer comprehensive care that meets a wide variety of needs, with an emphasis on personalized care.
Do you have questions about which braces system is right for you? Dr. Shirck would be happy to talk to you during a consultation visit. When you come for a visit, he can explain the differences between Invisalign and traditional braces and help you understand all your options.
Call us today for an appointment. We serve patients from Westerville, Sunbury, New Albany, Alexandria, Granville, Johnstown, Newark, Blacklick, Reynoldsburg, and beyond.
