Invisalign is used in Orthodontics to treat the vast majority of common orthodontic problems for Teens and Adults. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help.
It’s successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, under bites and even cross bites.
Because Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to position and straighten teeth, you can keep your active lifestyle during treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners have no metal bands or wires to irritate your mouth. Since Invisalign is removable, just take the clear aligners out for special events or if you’re going to indulge in a sticky, gooey snack.
Invisalign is an Orthodontics option, clear and nearly invisible, so most people will never know you’re straightening your teeth – unless you tell them.
Dental braces are used in Orthodontics to align and straighten teeth to help position them with regards to a person´s bite. They can be used to correct poor occlusions, overbites, underbites, cross bites, etc. They can be used for cosmetic purposes or structural.
Before a patient can have braces put in, an orthodontic study has to be performed, which includes a clinical exam, taking photos of the patient, a panoramic x-ray, a cephalometric x-ray, and study molds.
