Fixed vs. Removable Appliances

It's important to understand the difference between fixed (glued-on) and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren't taken off until you complete your treatment at Johnson Family Orthodontics.

Removable appliances, like Invisalign's aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.

Aside from the obvious differences, Invisalign aligners are best at treating mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Fixed appliances are generally needed for more serious and comprehensive treatment involving the jaws alignment as well as growth and development.

Conventional Metal Braces, Invisalign & More

Most Salem patients we see at Johnson Family Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.

They’re affordable, fast, efficient, and so very customizable. But, while metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have many, many great options.

After your first free consultation, Dr. Johnson will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
