Orthodontic treatment is a method of straightening or moving teeth by using an Orthodontic appliance (braces or Invisalign). These appliances place a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, slowly moving the teeth into the proper position, improving the appearance of the teeth and how they function. A further advantage is that it can improve the long-term health of the teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all the teeth and allowing for an easier clean as the teeth are straighter
Today with the promise of less visible braces, and the fact fewer appointments are needed, more and more adults are now deciding that they want to improve their appearance, their tooth function and their confidence. Today, any age is a great time to wear braces!
