Braces are used more than ever today. In fact, it is estimated that fifty to seventy percent of youngsters will wear braces before adulthood. Most of us are not lucky enough to have perfectly straight teeth. Problems of bad bites, like crossbite or underbite, occur frequently and can only be corrected through braces treatment.
Braces are made of more than metal today. There are also plastic and ceramic braces. All braces work in a similar way by placing moderate pressure on the teeth. How much pressure is determined by the type of braces used. Every person’s situation is different, so individualized treatment is a must. Our skilled orthodontists will complete a thorough exam and diagnostics to determine what option is the most appropriate for you.
What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign treatment makes use of a series of clear, removable aligners that are placed over the teeth. The pressure placed on the teeth is less than metal braces, making Invisalign a more comfortable choice. The aligners are clear, making them virtually invisible to others, as well as removable so oral hygiene needn’t change and there is no change to eating habits.
Should I Opt For Self-Ligating Braces?
The decision to choose Self-Ligating Braces will largely depend on whether you are a proper candidate. Our Aurora orthodontist will complete a thorough exam and diagnostics to discover what issues you may have. A discussion between you and our specialist will determine whether Self-Ligating Braces are an appropriate fit for your situation.
Self-Ligating Braces have many advantages over traditional ones. Besides being more discreet, there is reduced treatment time, and the absence of bands or elastics.
