An effective long-term solution to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite is orthodontics. Orthodontics is a subspecialty in dentistry that focuses on aligning, straightening and crucially matching up the bite for the patients using appropriate orthodontic appliances applying pressure to the teeth to move them into a particular position.
There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear the traditional unsightly metal braces. Known as invisible orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.
Aligner / Invisalign
Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
Orthodontic treatment in young children is known as interceptive orthodontics, and it can begin as early as age 6 or 7. At this age, teeth are still developing and the jaw is still growing. That means certain conditions, such as crowding, may be easier to address.
