The invention of invisible braces has meant that more and more people are getting comfortable with wearing braces for straightening their teeth. However, there are many different ways to achieve a straight smile!
Invisalign® is, by far, one of the most popular teeth straightening option in the market at the moment. Its popularity is primarily because of the reason that it can’t be easily detected. Many people used to shy away from wearing braces because of their negative impact on their smile. However, with Invisalign®, this is never an issue as it cannot be detected with the naked eye. Also, Invisalign® aligners are easy to remove, ensuring comfort and convenience to the wearer. Invisalign® aligners are preferred by most people as they are custom-made for a patient. Orthodontists use 3D technology to create a set of aligners that are perfectly suited to the needs of the user.
Lingual braces are another treatment option for straightening the teeth. The advantage with lingual braces is that they are fitted on the inside of the teeth. This makes them a suitable option for people who don’t want anyone to know that they are wearing braces. Like Invisalign®, lingual braces are customized to the suit the user. However, unlike Invisalign® aligners, lingual braces are non-removable and can only be removed by the orthodontist.
Orthodontic Metal Braces
Orthodontic metal braces involve the use of metallic or ceramic brackets to align the teeth in their correct position. These brackets are fixed to the front of the teeth and joined together with the help of wires. Over a period of time, the orthodontist tightens these brackets, which moves the teeth in their correct position.
One of the best methods for getting the front teeth in place, the Inman Aligner is a relatively quicker teeth straightening option. The treatment takes around 8-10 weeks on an average, and after the teeth are corrected to their original position, a discreet retainer is used to ensure they stay in their place. Again, customization options are available and these braces are easily removable.
If you’ve been considering getting your teeth straightened these were some of the best teeth straightening options available in the market at the moment. As we mentioned earlier, getting your teeth straightened is no longer a tedious treatment option that it was once perceived to be.
