Orthodontic treatment can be addressed in three ways:
- Removable plate
- Fixed brackets (metal and ceramic variants)
- Clear aligners (This has been introduced in the recent past for better patient compliance and acceptance.
Clear Aligners are custom-made for every person and designed to move teeth in the desired direction very slowly by gentle force. This is achieved by digitally capturing impressions and processing the information using specialized software, where the future projections for better results and straighter teeth are computed and then the milling machine automatically custom fabricates the set of trays for you. On average the duration of treatment is almost the same as traditional braces.
But the aligners come with an advantage i.e. they are very snugly fitting which over a period becomes virtually a part of the body and hence causes no speech problems. There are no restrictions on eating and drinking any foods as you will be removing them before every meal.
Clear Aligners have become more and more affordable with the introduction of newer technology and competition. As a result, they have become more commonplace owing to their clear advantage over traditional braces. Ask to consult a specialist in case you feel the need to correct the appearance of your tooth. Though this is strictly a medical treatment it has immense aesthetic value as well. One can opt-in for an orthodontic treatment even if he or she is not facing any apparent issue from misaligned teeth. It has an immense impact on how or friends, family, and colleagues perceive us.
