WHY YOU WOULD NEED ORTHODONTIC
HOW ORTHODONTICS WORK
With all the orthodontic options available today, traditional metal braces remain one of the most reliable, effective options for correcting severe orthodontic issues. Braces consist of several metal brackets attached to the teeth and held together by an orthodontic wire. The teeth will be gradually pushed towards an ideal alignment with the wire held in place by elastics.
We have good news for adults who want to make mild to moderate improvements: it’s not too late for orthodontic treatment, and you may not even have to get braces. Instead, we can provide you with several Invisalign clear aligners, which are virtually invisible when worn on the teeth and can be taken out of the mouth for meals. You’ll be able to eat what you want and feel free to smile at others without being concerned that they’ll see anything other than the improvements that Invisalign brings.
