Crooked or crowded teeth
Can affect the way your teeth function and work
With Orthodontics, you can get treatment that not only improves your smile, but also your health. While you are achieving a confident smile, you are also creating a smile that is easier to clean, and less likely to be susceptible to tooth decay or injury.
Metal and Ceramic Braces
Conventional Braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment used by dentists and involve placing brackets on teeth and connecting them with arch wires that tighten to create movement. Braces put a gentle pressure on your teeth, which results in moving them over a number of months or years, into their correct position.
These braces can be used at any age, and in cases where Invisalign invisible braces is not an option.
An alternative to braces
Invisalign Invisible Aligners
Invisalign is a treatment that helps you create a beautiful straight smile, without the restraints of traditional braces. Becoming increasingly popular, Invisalign is a discreet alternative to braces. Their popularity stems from their shorter treatment times, fewer dental visits, and removability of the aligners, so you never need to worry about what you can or can’t eat. In most cases, Invisalign aligners are worn for two weeks and only removed for the purposes of drinking, eating, brushing, and flossing. When an aligner is replaced by the new one, teeth are slowly moved each week until they create a straight smile. With Invisalign invisible braces, total treatment time is 9-15 months.
