What orthodontics can do for you
Invisalign clear aligners or traditional metal braces work by gently and gradually shifting teeth into proper alignment. While most people associate braces with straightening crooked teeth, they can also treat problems such as overbite, underbite, and cross bite. Correcting orthodontic problems can have many benefits including:
- Improve chewing efficiency – The digestive process begins in the mouth. The chewing process breaks food down into small pieces and mixes it with saliva. When you are not able to chew properly, you may not be getting the most nutrients from what you eat.
- Prevent tooth damage – If just a few teeth are doing all the work when you chew your food, they are being subjected to excess wear and tear. In some cases, it can also increase the risk of fractures or other tooth trauma.
- Reduce jaw pain – The jaw (temporomandibular joint) is a powerful, yet delicate and complex joint. Poor alignment can lead to jaw pain, and even increased headaches and other problems.
- More effective oral hygiene – Crowding of teeth can create tight spaces that are difficult or impossible to clean. This creates a haven for the harmful bacteria that cause tooth decay.
- Cosmetic improvement – Crooked teeth can detract from the appearance of your smile. This is one of the most common reasons why people seek orthodontic treatment.
In rare cases, severe orthodontic problems may require measures such as tooth extraction or oral surgery. However, most cases can be corrected by wearing braces. There are three choices, which are highly effective:
Invisalign – Clear, removable aligners.
Invisalign® is an orthodontic procedure that uses a series of removable transparent plastic aligner trays. It is a quick solution for improving bite alignment and correcting gaps, voids, and misaligned teeth.
Traditional – Metal brackets and wires.
Traditional braces are made out of regular metal brackets that are attached to your teeth and connected by wires. They must be tightened every 4-6 weeks so that the consistent pressure may eventually straighten your teeth and realign your jaw.
Candid clear aligners are efficient, effective, and inexpensive. Candid is great for those who wish to obtain the straight smile of their dreams in as few consultations as possible.
