Types of Orthodontic Treatments
- Fixed Braces
Braces refer to the metal brackets and or ceramic attached to each tooth connected by a wire to adjust the teeth’s alignment gradually. Once the teeth are correctly aligned, the braces are then removed, and other treatment can be implemented to improve and maintain teeth positioning.
Invisalign is a custom-made transparent aligner. The aligner trays are made from a comfortable plastic material. Wearing this type of aligner helps the teeth to shift into place gradually. Invisalign does not have metal brackets and wires.
