Orthodontics today is innovative and not how most adults remember it as kids! Orthodontics used to consist of large metal brackets that had sharp edges. Today, the materials are much less noticeable, smaller, smoother, and are designed to move teeth more efficiently.
These braces have the structure of the conventional metal braces but as they are made of translucent material, they appear to be less noticeable. Like metal braces, Ceramic braces consist of wires, brackets and elastic bands. The advantage of Ceramic braces is that every part of the bracket is made up of clear ceramic material
Aligners are orthodontic devices that are used to straighten the teeth. They are transparent and customized to fit individual tooth making it tooth fitting. Clear aligners are invisible and comfortable to wear. These aligners are made with 3D computer technology and have proven to be more and more effective throughout the years.
Clear aligners help to gradually push the teeth to its correct position. These aligners are made of strong plastic and cover the individual tooth. Aligners don’t use brackets or wires making it an excellent alternative to braces. They are removable and hence unlike braces, they won’t cause any hindrance while eating or brushing. Clear aligners are highly recommended by orthodontists to pave way for the orthodontic treatment of their patient.
