New York, NY, Jan. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Olga Bukholts, D.D.S. of Perfect Smiles Orthodontics provides the HARMONY System as a lingual braces option, so patients can flash a naturally beautiful smile for the New Year while also counting down to straighter teeth. Why tarnish a polished, glamorous outfit with the obvious "metal-mouth" of conventional braces? Dr. Bukholts' patients enjoy the same, beautiful results with lingual braces in NYC as those who choose conventional braces without the noticeable wires and brackets associated with traditional treatment.
Lingual braces are similar to the mechanics and concept of conventional braces in that the appliance utilizes wires and brackets and are affixed to the tooth during treatment. Unlike conventional braces, however, HARMONY braces are attached to the lingual, or inside, of teeth. Throughout the years, the technology used for lingual braces have significantly improved from their conception, and are currently just as advanced as outward-facing braces.
Patients often prefer the HARMONY System because it offers the benefits of both conventional braces and Invisalign® without any of the cons. Like Invisalign®, lingual braces are hidden from public view; no one will know that an orthodontic treatment is taking place at first glance. Invisalign® in New York, however, is only effective while being worn. When children and absent-minded adults remove Invisalign® for eating, drinking, or cleaning, they can easily forget to reapply the aligners. Like conventional braces, lingual braces are affixed to the back of the teeth throughout treatment. In this way, the force applied to the teeth is constant, without breaks for eating, brushing, or forgetfulness.
Enamel demineralization can potentially occur with patients who wear conventional braces and are not conscientious of their oral hygiene. This most often occurs to teens and young adults who forget or refuse to consistently brush their teeth after meals but can occur to anyone despite age or gender. Busy adults with demanding careers may not give oral hygiene top priority in their schedule and consequently suffer from white spot lesions, the physical indication of enamel demineralization. Conventional braces make brushing and flossing more difficult and time consuming, increasing the potential surface for food particles and plaque to gather around brackets. Although HARMONY braces make brushing more difficult as well, their positioning eliminates the risk of noticeable white spot lesions should enamel demineralization occur.
HARMONY braces is one of the best systems of lingual braces available on the market today and the only one used at Perfect Smiles Orthodontics. This system is superior to others because each brace is custom made for every patient and every tooth. Customized braces minimize the chance of a brace accidentally slipping off in the course of orthodontic treatment. Each brace also has a special clip which holds a wire, replacing the need for a rubber band around every brace. This feature allows for faster and more hygienic treatment.
In addition to HARMONY braces' superior design, this lingual braces system also allows for treatment simulation. Through treatment simulation technology, Dr. Bukholts can pre-plan each patient's treatment from beginning to end and utilize a sequence of robotically-bent, high precision wires. These precision wires guarantee the movement accuracy of each individual tooth, making perfect smiles possible.
Orthodontic appliances are constantly progressing with advancing technology; the comprehensive range of appliances available at Perfect Smile Orthodontics allows patients to utilize the system best suited for their dental and personal needs, so the only thing brighter and more beautiful than the New Year is your smile.
