People of all ages can benefit from straight and aligned teeth from orthodontic treatment. If your teeth stick out, are crowded, or crooked, orthodontics prevents and corrects malocclusions. Straight teeth are easier to clean and are less likely to get tooth decay or injuries.
To achieve straight and better functioning teeth, braces or other appliances put gentle pressure on your teeth and slowly move them into the preferred position. This process can take up to several years. After the removal of your braces, you will be required to wear a retainer part-time to help keep your newly straightened teeth in place.
Aligners are custom-made trays of clear plastic that can gradually shift your teeth into place. With no wires or brackets, aligners work by wearing them constantly and switching aligners every couple of weeks. Custom made to fit your teeth, aligners advance your teeth into the next stage of treatment by gently shifting them with each new set. Virtually invisible, these aligners are a discreet option for those looking to get straighter teeth.
