Orthodontics Can Change Your SmileWednesday, May 4th, 2016, 8:38 pm
Orthodontics used to be considered a treatment just for kids – not anymore. Adults are seeking orthodontic treatment in higher numbers today, and with good reason because braces can change your smile.
Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you and maybe yours isn’t as perfect as you would like. Maybe you had braces as a child but your teeth have shifted over time (and maybe you didn’t wear those retainers like you should have). Maybe your teeth were always straight but have shifted some as you have aged. Maybe there is just that one little tooth, right there in the front, that has always bothered you when you look at photographs. There are so many reasons for adult orthodontics and today there are also many choices when it comes to treatment.
Orthodontic treatment today doesn’t mean years of metal brackets and rubber bands. Some cases can be completed in only six months. Some cases don’t need brackets at all and teeth can be straightened using clear plastic trays. The choice will depend upon your wants and the type of treatment your dentist feels is most appropriate.
Invisalign braces straighten teeth using a series of clear plastic aligner trays. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and then changed to the next in the series. This gently moves the teeth to their proper place. Most people find Invisalign incredibly comfortable and the trays can be removed so you can eat (no need to limit foods that could damage brackets) and clean your teeth.
