Straight teeth allow for a confident smile.
Orthodontics refers to the straightening of teeth and is usually associated with traditional metal-wired braces. Malocclusions refer to cases in which the upper and lower teeth are not properly aligned in relation to one another or in cases in which spaces between individual teeth are too wide. Malocclusions occur because of minor jaw malformations at birth and because of conditions and situations which put pressure on a patient’s teeth.

While traditional, metal braces are often still considered the standard form of orthodontic treatment, today, Invisalign has become a popular replacement for braces and is generally accepted by dentists, orthodontists, and patients alike. Invisalign uses clear plastic alignment trays to move the teeth into alignment. It is a preferred method because the aligner trays are more comfortable and less difficult to maintain than traditional, metal-wired braces. Also, invisalign allows for better access to and in between the teeth for more advanced hygiene. More and more with Invisalign technology advancements, this modern form of tooth movement is becoming more and more the standard and preferred form of treatment for minor cases.
