Time Is On Your Side: Orthodontic Treatments  | Lucy Wachs DDS

Orthodontist Lexington


The pursuit of a straighter smile and aligned bite is a journey that demands time and commitment, and at Buchart + Wachs Orthodontics, led by Lucy Wachs DDS, we understand the importance of finding the right treatment solution tailored to each patient’s needs.

Clear Aligner Therapy:

Clear aligner therapy offers a discreet and convenient option for achieving a straighter smile. Custom-made clear trays apply gentle pressure to gradually reposition teeth, promoting bone activity for lasting results. Patients wear these aligners for approximately 22 hours a day, changing them every two weeks. Treatment typically spans a little over a year, followed by nighttime retainer wear. Clear aligners are removable for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene routines, making them a popular choice for many malocclusion cases.

Wires and Brackets (Braces):

Braces, the traditional approach to orthodontic treatment, employ brackets, wires, and elastic bands to exert constant pressure on teeth, guiding them into proper alignment. Monthly adjustments ensure progress and accommodate the evolving needs of each patient. The duration of braces treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case, typically ranging from one to three years. Despite their reputation, braces remain a highly effective solution for achieving a beautifully aligned smile.

Choosing the right orthodontic treatment requires careful consideration and guidance from our experienced team. While clear aligner therapy and braces offer distinct benefits, the optimal choice depends on individual factors such as the severity of malocclusion, lifestyle preferences, and treatment goals.

Improving your smile is a significant commitment, and our team is here to support you every step of the way. By discussing your unique needs and preferences, we can determine the most suitable treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
