If you are looking to adjust your smile to be more to your liking, orthodontics can provide an avenue for you to achieve the smile you desire. You have options when it comes to orthodontic treatments depending on your situation and goals.
Metal Braces or Traditional Braces
When you hear the word braces, this is most likely what you’re thinking of. In the past metal braces were larger and more cumbersome. Modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable, and there is even new heat-activated archwires that use your body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than previous options. Additionally, some kids like being able to choose different colours for their elastics which makes the ortho process more enjoyable for them.
Invisalign consists of custom-made plastic aligners that are like slim clear mouthguards. The aligners are removable and are replaced every 2 weeks throughout the treatment process. The aligners are almost invisible with the ability to remove them, allowing patients to eat and drink whatever they want, which also allows for easier maintenance. The convenience and ease of Invisalign makes it a great option for teens and adults, alike.
