What Are Orthodontics?

Orthodontic treatments aim to correct irregularities and misalignments in teeth and jaws. It is important to correct any overcrowded to misaligned teeth to prevent improper jaw closure.

Kinds of Orthodontic Treatments

Depending on your lifestyle, and the positioning of your teeth, your dentist will propose the best orthodontic treatment option for you. Some of these options include:

  • Fixed Braces: These remain to be the most popular type of orthodontic treatment available. They are fitted to your teeth and with external forces provided by springs or elastic rubber bands they conform your teeth to a more natural bite.
  • Retainers: Retainers can be fixed or removable and they are another way to straighten teeth. Retainers tend to go on the back of the teeth so they can stay hidden unlike braces, but they may only do the job in some particular cases.
  • Invisalign: Invisalign is a device that is intended to go over the teeth and with a clear appearance they can allow you to have the natural teeth look while still straightening your teeth out.
