An insight into orthodontics

There are three main types of orthodontic treatments available for child and adult patients.

The second type of orthodontic treatment is invisible braces. Similar to fixed braces they consist of brackets and wires however these braces are fixed onto the inner surface of a patient’s teeth, meaning they are completely hidden from sight and no one will be aware you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Finally, the third type of orthodontic treatment is Invisalign, which uses advanced 3D technology to straighten your teeth. Unlike fixed and invisible braces, Invisalign is made of custom clear plastic aligners that you are required to change every two weeks throughout your treatment. These aligners are also removable meaning you can eat and drink your favourite foods as normal and you can maintain a good oral health regime.
