Orthodontic Treatment Using Invisible Braces

Orthodontics have never been so advanced that today you no longer have to suffer wearing those metal braces that don’t even look nice, but instead they have created invisible aligners that are made of clear and tooth colored brackets that uses NASA type wires and can easily be tightened because they are heat activated. Or those clear retainer type aligners where braces or wires are not required anymore. Visiting an orthodontist may help to decide which cosmetic treatment is for you because these aligners are not really for everyone.

Since the idea of this profession is to correct your bite, orthodontists or your dentist will start to plan on how to move your teeth and align them correctly. Aligners are for those that needs slight adjustments to move your teeth over the treatment time. The materials used for aligners is clear plastic or acrylic material and they are made to fit tightly over the teeth, yet they can be removed if you need to eat, brush or floss your teeth. It is easy to get a new set of aligners every few weeks to continue teeth movement into a desired position since they are removable just like dentures.

Braces made of ceramic or are clear type function just like the traditional braces without the ugly looking metal contraptions, and now they have a combination of choices by separating the band from the archwire. IN these types of braces, the bands are attached to the teeth so that the archwire are secured which fastens all teeth together. And for a purely aesthetic reason, you can now either choose what type of band to use and what type of archwire cord to exploit. You should choose a translucent or clear band rather than a ceramic band if your teeth is light in color which is just one of the basic guidelines for choosing ceramic versus clear bands. This also has to be complimented by either those white or color coated archwire or those frosted archwire.
