Braces & Aligners
Many patients (or their parents) have inquired about the best solution for them. Because this is such a personal choice, we thought we'd give some information to take with you in case you need more time to think about your options. It's important to remember that aligners can assist with the majority of orthodontic problems, but not all of them. As a consequence, it's critical that you discuss which option will assist you to get the greatest result with your orthodontist during your initial visit.
However, in many circumstances, both alternatives are accessible, giving you the freedom to choose what you want and what best matches your lifestyle. Braces are connected to your teeth and are constructed of metal or porcelain. Metal wires and elastic bands are then utilised to apply force to the teeth, assisting them in moving into the proper position.
Aligners are a form of brace that is made of plastic and is custom-made for your teeth. Each aligner gradually brings the teeth closer to their final place. Various teeth have little lumps of composite resin (tooth-coloured filling material) affixed to them to help the aligner grab the tooth and move it appropriately.
