Orthodontic Fact #7
Last Updated on
Orthodontic Fact #7 Some dental wires used in dental braces are activated by body heat and were developed by NASA.
Your smile is your calling card to the world. It can light up a room and open doors. When you have orthodontic issues that get in the way, it can make it hard to show off your teeth. You can do something about it. Thanks to the many advances in the field of orthodontics and NASA, you have many options when it comes to braces. Your orthodontist can help you to consider each alternative in order to find the course of treatment that will work best for you. A beautiful smile is within reach, but you need to see an orthodontist first.
It’s All About Choices
When it comes to orthodontic problems, braces are the first thing that comes to mind. All you can picture is a mouth full of metal. Ask your orthodontist about other options, such as braces that are worn behind the teeth, clear brackets, or Invisalign. Invisalign is growing in popularity because it is convenient and nearly invisible. If you choose Invisalign, you’ll wear clear aligners that are switched every, few weeks. They can be removed for special functions, sporting events, and when you eat. They will gradually shift your teeth into position over time. They are comparable with other methods of orthodontic correction when it comes to price and length of treatment.
