Transparent and removable orthodontic appliances are sometimes called invisible braces in Ladysmith. They are used to straighten teeth and by the end of your treatment, you will have the amazing results you want.
Before beginning your treatment with invisible braces, read these relevant points!
Lingual braces are identical to standard metal braces (or its transparent cousin, clear braces), except that they are positioned at the back of your teeth instead of the front. As the trend of adults seeking orthodontic treatment grew, more orthodontists began to offer lingual braces.
There are many variations between lingual braces and those positioned on the front, but they both function similarly. The major advantage of lingual braces is that they are virtually invisible from the outside, but since they are placed inside the mouth, it could be more difficult to feel at ease and talk.
Because they are nearly invisible on your teeth, clear aligners are a rapidly expanding trend. With custom-made trays, clear aligners and Invisalign gently move your teeth as you move through the trays. Your orthodontist will create a mold of your teeth using a 3D scan or putty impressions, and from there, they will design your tray.
Clear aligners place a lot of responsibility on the wearer. They must be taken out every time you eat or drink something other than water and left on for about 20 to 22 hours daily. But if you want to straighten your teeth without braces or anyone knowing, this type of invisible braces is a wonderful option. Don’t let the responsibility turn you off.
Regarding material, ceramic braces are fairly comparable to conventional metal braces. The only distinction between the two types of braces is that ceramic braces feature clear or tooth-colored brackets to help them blend in with the teeth. Both forms of braces employ brackets, wires, and occasionally elastics.
All of these orthodontic procedures may be excellent possibilities for you. Still, the best course of action is to schedule a consultation with an orthodontist to determine which procedure is right for you. An orthodontist will help you navigate the large and varied field of orthodontics as you work toward a straighter smile. Call us for more information!
