Orthodontics has been around for a long time – it works by applying pressure to your teeth over time, which causes your teeth to move. Luckily though, technology has improved the way orthodontics is applied with some great alternatives available. Orthodontics has moved beyond the obvious metal braces that you or your friends may have worn at school and options like high-tech, invisible aligners (pictured) are now available.
Many developments in today’s orthodontic treatment have been focused on helping adult patients. If your teeth are crooked, orthodontic treatment at any age may be just what you need to give you a smile you can wear with confidence.
Invisalign is the breakthrough technology that lets you have the smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle of braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners (shown in the photo), Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into a straighter position step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike conventional braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual.
Recent improvements in traditional braces have resulted in smaller, stronger, more efficient and less conspicuous brackets. Metal brackets are the most familiar, however, clear and tooth-coloured ceramic and plastic brackets are also available.
Braces are bonded brackets, arch wires and elastic bands that move crowded or spaced teeth into the proper position for appearance and function. Over a period of time, teeth will shift if constant, gentle pressure is applied. Brackets are bonded to the front surface of each tooth and wires are attached to the brackets with elastic bands. The slight tension on the wire is gently transferred to the bracket through the elastic band. Today’s orthodontic treatment is faster, comfortable and more fashionable than ever before for children, teens and adults.
