Orthodontic Fact #6
Last Updated on
Orthodontic Fact #6 The first braces were of a piece of flat metal in 1720. This was connected to the patient’s teeth by using several pieces of thread.
If you have been hiding from the mirror or the camera because of orthodontic problems with your teeth, you can make a change for the better. There are so many options that are available to you today. Gone are the days when the orthodontist could only give you metal braces and brackets to correct your teeth. You can now tailor your orthodontic experience to fit you. The first step is to make an appointment and discuss your alternatives. You can get the smile you want with a little bit of help.
Your Braces Could be Invisible
Invisalign is a popular alternative to braces that could work for you. When you opt for Invisalign, you will wear clear aligners that have been specifically made for your mouth. Every two weeks or so, your aligners will change as they gently move your teeth into the proper position. Because they are clear, people often do not even know that they are there. You can take them out when you eat or if you are involved in contact sports. Maintain better oral hygiene without wires and brackets to get in the way. Invisalign treatment and treatment with traditional orthodontics can be completed in a similar amount of time. Prices compare as well.
