Do you often hesitate to smile confidently because of your misarranged teeth? Did you know that such poorly arranged teeth can also lead to several oral health problems? Braces and aligners are one of the most common and effective types of orthodontic treatments used for teeth straightening. Orthodontic braces for adults, teens and children have improved a lot in terms of form, function and comfort.
Today, you can choose from multiple types of braces or aligners which meet your orthodontic as well as cosmetic requirements. Take a look:
Fixed, metal or traditional braces are the most standard way to shift teeth into their ideal location. Their earlier versions felt more intrusive because of the size. Thanks to technology, these types of braces have become smaller and less noticeable. Also, the kind of wires used in such braces now, move teeth faster with negligible pain.
These braces are far less noticeable as compared to the traditional metal braces. The brackets of these braces are made from a ceramic material which is of the same color and texture as the patient’s teeth. They work in the same way as the metal braces do.
These braces are similar in structure and function to the traditional braces but are mounted behind your teeth. Hence, you can get your teeth straightened without anyone knowing that you are wearing braces. These braces are a bit less comfortable and the patient may take a while to get used to them.
These aligners are the most advanced options for teeth straightening. They are customized for each patient as per the plan of treatment created by the orthodontist. Invisalign aligners are practically invisible, have no metal components and hence are very comfortable to use and also offer you the convenience of removing them while eating and brushing.
