One of the first things people notice about you is your smile. Unfortunately, dental and jaw abnormalities do often occur. Teeth can be impacted, turned, crowded, spaced, or missing altogether.
Fortunately most of these problems can be corrected by orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic treatment focuses on straightening teeth and altering bone growth within the mouth.
Beneficial to both adults and children alike; orthodontics will correct bite and the positioning of your teeth. There are a couple of Orthodontic treatment options available to you:
Braces are a combination of brackets and wires attached to the front of your teeth. The brackets grip the teeth and the wires are loosened or tightened to move the teeth to the desired position. As an option, instead of the metal brackets used on conventional braces, we can also offer tooth-colored brackets which are virtually invisible and very difficult to detect.
Lingual braces are very similar to conventional braces; however, the brackets and wires are attached to the back of your teeth instead of the front. This option is considered to be the best non-visible form of fixed orthodontic treatment available.
The invisible way to straighten teeth. A series of clear removable aligners are worn to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. > Find out more about Invisalign Clear Braces.
