Many people have crowded, protruding or crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatments will straighten or move teeth to improve the appearance and the way the teeth bite together, while also making them easier to clean and therefore, avoiding caries or periodontal disease from developing.
There are two basic types of appliances that are used in the orthodontic treatments:
Fixed appliance: composed of individual components, made from metal or ceramic, that are bonded onto each tooth and connected by an arch wire, they cannot be removed from the mouth by the patient.
Removable appliance: composed of an acrylic base and metal wires, it can be removed from the mouth by the patient for cleaning, eating and adjustments.
Invisalign: is the clearest way to straighten teeth without braces, only using aligners. It straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your individual teeth. Replacing each aligner every two weeks, the tooth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected desired position.
