Want to have a straighter smile and perfect bite? Then welcome to the field of orthodontics!
You have many options available that can effectively improve the position of your teeth, leading to a healthier bite and a more present smile.
In this short post, let’s look at two of the most popular types of treatments, the differences between them, and which one might work best for you: Invisalign and traditional metal braces.
Traditional metal braces involve attaching brackets and wires to the teeth. The wires are pulled to apply more pressure and slowly move the teeth until they reach their most optimal position.
This is a staple treatment in orthodontics, used to treat everything from mild to even severe alignment issues. The wires allow the orthodontist to apply just the right amount of pressure required to reposition the tooth and even rotate it if necessary.
Invisalign is a type of clear aligner that can discreetly reposition teeth. Like metal braces, the aligners apply constant pressure to the teeth in order to move them.
In the beginning, Invisalign was only able to treat mild cases of alignment issues. But over the years, this type of treatment has significantly improved and is now able to tackle even moderate cases of misalignment.
Who doesn’t want a discreet way to get a healthier and straighter smile? The process starts with a quick consultation with Dr. Sinha, who will conduct a thorough assessment of your oral health and determine if you are a good candidate for these clear aligners.
