Orthodontic Braces to Align Teeth

Posted Jan 15 2011 3:25am

Orthodontic braces are effective options to align your teeth and give you an improved facial appearance. Due to the remarkable advancements in technology, more convenient and easy to use orthodontic braces in metallic and non-metallic varieties are now widely available.

Comfortable Alternative to Improve Your Smile

Orthodontic braces can give you properly aligned, strong teeth, an eye-catching smile and a charming facial appearance without having to undergo major discomforts.

Experienced orthodontists would study your teeth, jaws and face structure in detail with the help of x-rays and photographs. If the specialist finds that your particular dental abnormality can be corrected with dental braces, he would recommend stainless steel metal braces, ceramic braces or Invisalign clear braces.  These dental aligners can be used to correct all complicated dental irregularities such as crooked teeth, extensively spaced teeth, protruding teeth, overcrowded teeth, openbites, underbites, overbites and crossbites.

Braces Apply Mild Pressure to Straighten Misaligned Teeth

To straighten your misaligned teeth, orthodontic braces work by applying a gentle pressure. Conventional metal braces are considered an economic alternative. These aligners are mostly favored by children as they can use different colored ligatures.   Ceramic braces are more convenient and a better aesthetic alternative to metal braces. These braces are smooth and translucent. They closely resemble the natural color of teeth and therefore are less visible to others. Besides, these aligners won’t get stained or discolored easily, ensuring additional comfort.

Invisalign, clear removable aligners are the most advanced option used to correct misaligned teeth. These aligners do not have metal wires and brackets. Invisalign aligners are specifically designed using advanced computer imaging technology according to the patient’s bite impressions. In the treatment phase, patients have to wear a series of aligners for two weeks and then replace them with a fresh set. This would speed up the entire teeth straightening procedure and ensure superior results. Compared to metal and ceramic braces, Invisalign braces are removable, enabling the patient to take food comfortably and maintain good oral hygiene.
