Orthodontics is the specialized branch of dentistry that deals with treating a malocclusion. For many years now, metal braces were the go-to orthodontic appliances to bring the teeth to their ideal alignment. Though they are highly effective, their metallic look would leave a shabby appearance on the smile, which may lead to a lot of embarrassment. But, thanks to the advancements in dentistry, we now have clear aligners that are both effective and aesthetically pleasing.
Conventional metal braces are made from metal brackets and wires. They gently apply pressure on the teeth in the required direction and move them to their orthodontically right positions. On the other hand, clear braces are made from ceramic or clear plastic brackets that stay indistinguishable. Even the wires that run through them are made from tooth-colored material, allowing you to keep your orthodontic treatment discreet.
Invisalign is currently one of the most technologically advanced orthodontic aligners, as it is backed by state-of-the-art technology. It is made from transparent plastic material that has shape memory, meaning it retains its shape and applies the same amount of pressure on the teeth throughout the course of treatment. Invisalign is especially helpful to teenagers, as they can confidently wear it to school or anywhere without feeling too conscious of their facial appearance.
