For decades, metal braces have been the standard for realigning crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth. A series of brackets are placed on each of your individual teeth and an archwire is threaded through them. Over the next two years or so, you’ll come back to our office for follow-up appointments to have the arch wire tightened. This is what effectively shifts your teeth into their straighter position. Those who suffer from severely misaligned bites or crowding teeth will likely find traditional orthodontics to be the most effective solution.
Those who have more mild to moderate levels of misalignment or crowding may find clear aligner trays from Invisalign to be more applicable. This treatment uses no metal components whatsoever to shift teeth and instead opts for customized trays that match specific stages of your treatment. Simply wear each pair of trays for about 22 hours a day, only removing to brush, floss, eat meals, drink anything other than plain water, chew gum, and take the occasional photo if you’d like.
