Braces

BRACES


Consisting of brackets, bands, wires, and ties, braces are still the preferred way to fix most orthodontic problems.  Braces are now much smaller than they were a generation ago, making them less visible, more comfortable, and easier to clean.  In addition, clear braces, made of translucent porcelain, and tooth-colored wires can be used to make braces even less visible.  Often, elastics are connected to the braces to fix problems with the bite.

Invisalign

INVISALIGN


Available for adults and teens, Invisalign may be used to correct mild to moderate orthodontic problems. A series of clear, plastic trays, called “aligners,” are each programmed to move the teeth a little at a time, until the teeth are straight. Invisalign has the advantage of being more aesthetic (the aligners are practically invisible), comfortable (nothing to poke or rub), and hygienic (they are taken out to eat and brush). However, Invisalign cannot be used to treat the more.

EARLY TREATMENT


Most young people do not need orthodontic treatment until all of the permanent teeth have erupted, which is usually around the age of 12. However, when there is a significant disharmony between the way the upper jaw relates to the lower jaw, there is sometimes a need for early correction. Between the ages of 7 and 9, some children will greatly benefit from a headgear (worn only at home) or a palate expander. In addition, habit-breaking appliances are helpful to stop the harmful effects of thumb-sucking, when kids are having a hard time stopping on their own. A space maintainer may also be necessary when baby teeth are lost prematurely.
