No matter what your age, orthodontics can protect your bite (occlusion), maximize your teeth's effectiveness in performing their functions and create a well-aligned smile. Today's orthodontics involves repositioning of the teeth and underlying roots, and providing better support for the crown of the tooth. Orthodontic treatment is now associated with the benefits of greater esthetic appeal, increased comfort and reduced treatment time.
Orthodontic treatment can also rejuvenate your facial appearance by reshaping the jaw, neck, lips and cheek, especially when combined with maxillofacial surgical procedures. In addition, well-aligned teeth make oral hygiene easier to maintain.
Invisalign is a leading brand of removable orthodontic appliances offered as an alternative to more traditional orthodontic solutions. A type of clear tooth aligner, Invisalign is intended for minor misaligned tooth problems and for people who find the idea of a mouthful of metal braces and brackets – however effective – too unattractive to commit to.
