Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the movement of teeth using braces and removable appliances to make the corrections involving straightening of the teeth and improving the bite. Orthodontics can provide a healthy attractive smile for many years.
Orthodontic treatment in early development can reduce future risks of impacted teeth, permanent tooth extractions, and other conditions that may necessitate invasive dental treatment. Plus, incoming teeth can be guided by the orthodontist at this stage, allowing a greater chance that once the permanent teeth start coming in, they will have adequate room to do so.
Orthodontics has come a very long way since the days of “brace face” and “metal mouth”, and there are a variety of options at Hermosa Clinique for adults who would like to improve their smiles.
Treatments such as Invisalign are exceptional alternatives to metal braces; and adults can also take advantage of lingual braces.
At Hermosa Clinique , we provide you variety of braces options according to your need and comfort :
Metal Braces - While traditional metal braces may not be the most visually appealing method of straightening teeth, they do offer significant benefits. They are typically more cost-effective than other methods, and they also may be more effective for patients with severely crooked teeth.
Clear Braces - Ceramic braces use brackets that are tooth-colored, making it less noticeable to others that you are wearing braces. The brackets are also built to resist stains, making them blend with your natural tooth-color for the duration of treatment. This can ultimately lead to beautiful results in a relatively brief amount of time.
Invisalign - Although Invisalign is an effective procedure for straightening teeth, the treatment is actually not braces at all! Invisalign is a state-of-the-art system of clear teeth aligners that can be removed while you eat and drink, providing a more comfortable way of straightening teeth while being virtually invisible to the outside world.
Lingual Braces - Many people don’t seek orthodontic treatment for the simple reason that they feel they would be embarrassed by wearing the traditional metal braces. However, with lingual braces, you get the same effective teeth-straightening results without anyone having to know you’re wearing them.
Lingual braces are designed to fit on the backside of the teeth, instead of the front. They work in much the same way as traditional braces, using brackets and wires to pull the teeth into a better, straighter position in the mouth; however, the brackets are designed to attach to the back of the teeth, making them invisible to others.
Palatal Expander - An expander is fixed in place for several months to widen the upper jaw in order to correct a cross-bite or give the teeth more room to erupt inside the mouth.
