Orthodontic appliances are used in various ways to align and straighten teeth, as well as to help re shape the jaw and correct the bite. There are 2 types of Orthodontic cases provided at our practice – Dental Braces and Invisalign. Depending on the case of the individual, we will match one of the two simple techniques to the case in our best opinion.
Nowadays, braces come as the most effective way to re align the jaw and teeth. Metal braces are most popular, but we also provide ceramic and clear braces. Braces consist of a few materials and appliances throughout the process including attached brackets, adjustable wires and elastic bands, which all work together in re positioning gap and crowded teeth. The process can generally take from as little as 3 months to 3 years, depending on the case. Anyone can wear braces; from children to teens, and even adults!
Invisalign is known as the “invisible braces” – A new innovative design that assists in straightening and re sculpting a new smile, no braces needed. Invisalign is a clear removable plate which you swap over every 2 weeks, and can be removed while eating and brushing your teeth. It varies in the duration depending on the case, however, just like braces; the treatment may start from 3 months to 3 years. We generally recommended Invisalign to patients with cases that are not as severe as those with braces. Invisalign is recommended for teens and adults.
