Invisalign, Clear Aligners
Clear aligners are a popular orthodontic option that uses a series of transparent, removable trays to gradually straighten teeth. They are virtually invisible and offer a discreet alternative to traditional braces. Clear aligners are often preferred for their comfort, convenience, and aesthetic appeal during the teeth-straightening process.
Invisalign is a brand of clear aligners used for orthodontic treatment. These custom-made, transparent trays gradually straighten teeth. They offer a nearly invisible and comfortable alternative to traditional braces.
Ceramic & Traditional Braces
Ceramic braces are orthodontic devices that use clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires to straighten teeth. They offer a less noticeable appearance compared to traditional metal braces, making them a popular choice for individuals seeking a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Ceramic braces are effective at aligning teeth while providing a more aesthetically pleasing look during the course of treatment.
Traditional braces are orthodontic devices that use metal brackets and wires to align and straighten teeth. They are a highly effective treatment option for correcting various dental issues, including misalignments, overbites, and underbites. While they are visible, advances in design have made them more comfortable and efficient.
Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a specialized branch of orthodontics that involves the coordination of orthodontic treatment with surgical procedures to correct severe dental and skeletal irregularities. It is typically recommended for individuals with complex issues such as misaligned jaws, severe overbites or underbites, and facial asymmetry. The goal of surgical orthodontics is to improve both the functional bite and the overall facial aesthetics of the patient by aligning the jaws and teeth correctly. This multidisciplinary approach often requires collaboration between orthodontists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons to achieve optimal results.
