Orthodontic treatment is a successful way to finally align your teeth and achieve the smile of your dreams. If you are one who isn’t quite sure about orthodontics, we are happy to help you know more about the treatment that can give you the smile you have always wanted!

There are many reasons why you should choose to align your smile with orthodontics, and the first reason is because it can finally wash away the embarrassment you feel when you smile to take a picture or look at yourself in the mirror. It is a great self-esteem booster and it finally gives you a reason to love your appearance. Second, it can correct many dental problems, like overbites, underbites, improper jaw positions, jaw joint problems, and misaligned teeth. If these issues don’t get treated, additional problems could develop, like tooth decay and gum disease. Third, it can give you your perfect smile for a lifetime. Once your treatment is over, you will never feel ashamed or embarrassed of your smile again.

When it comes to the treatment itself, you have many options to choose from, like:

Traditional braces
This appliance consists of metal brackets and wires that apply pressure to your teeth and gradually shift your teeth throughout time. The metal brackets are glued to the front surfaces of your teeth and are connected by the metal wires. This appliance is one of the cheaper options that provides successful results.

Ceramic braces
This appliance has tooth-colored brackets and wires that provide a natural appearance. The appliance is glued to the front surfaces of your teeth.

Invisalign®
This appliance is virtually invisible. It covers your teeth like a mouth guard would and it gradually changes your smile throughout time. This aligner is clear, plastic, and removable.

Lingual braces
This appliance is similar to traditional braces, but instead of the brackets being glued to the front surfaces of your teeth, the brackets are glued to the back of your teeth. This makes them invisible and productive.
