Traditional orthodontics refers to metal braces, which use a combination of brackets and wires to slowly move the teeth into a more attractive and functional alignment. These are ideal for younger patients with rapidly changing mouths, but they can also help adults with more advanced orthodontic issues. Thankfully, braces have gotten a makeover since you were younger, and now they are smaller and more comfortable than ever. They can reliably fix crowded, crooked, and gapped teeth, plus they can also correct overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
If the thought of going to work or seeing friends with a mouthful of metal braces is enough to make you avoid orthodontics at all, then you’re far from alone. Invisalign was designed specifically with adults and teens in mind. Virtually invisible plastic aligner trays are used to move the teeth, allowing someone to maintain their regular appearance throughout treatment. The trays are removable as well, meaning patients can eat whatever they like and brush/floss like normal.
