Braces And Aligners
What Are Aligners (Invisible Braces)?
Clear Aligners are an alternative to traditional braces and are designed to help guide teeth into their proper position. Similar to braces, clear aligners use a gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets. The aligneers are made of strong plastic material and are fabricated with a computerised program to fit each individual's mouth. If a series of aligners are needed, each aligner moves the teeth in increments untill the desired movememnt is achived. Aligners are worn for atleast 20 hours a day to reach the desired maximum effectiveness. Each Aligner is worn for two weeks before changing to the next one.
Advantages of Aligners
- Transparent so they look good
- Removable so it is easier to brush and floss after meals
- Removable so no food restrictions
- Comfortable and less likely to irritate your gums and cheeks
Orthodontics refers to the use of wires to align crooked or crowded teeth and to close gaps between teeth. Though Orthodontics can be started at any age, it is strongly advised to bring your child for a checkup anytime after 6 years of age, since many adult dental problems can be avoided by early orthodontics. Adults can also have their teeth straightened as orthodontics is not limited to children
Lingual orthodontics is attached to the back side of the teeth, which makes them completely non-visible. This advanced method makes lingual orthodontics particularly well-suited for adults, who often want to improve the look and function of their teeth without letting anyone else know about their treatment. It is never too late to look and feel at your best! Problems like crooked teeth, spaces between the teeth or teeth that stick out can be corrected.
Most adults seek orthodontic treatment for cosmetic reasons; however, many may seek treatment because of jaw dysfunction, excessive wear of individual teeth or problems with dental hygiene, Whatever your reasons our consulting orthodontist will concentrate on straightening your teeth and achieving harmony of your teeth, jaws and face.
