Treatment of malpositioned teeth & jaws
If you’re looking to straighten a small section of your teeth, instead of your entire mouth, aligners are a great option for teeth straightening. Aligners are an ideal solution for correcting spacing or crowding issues. Because the aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favourite foods, brushing and flossing like normal to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Aligners are worn continually to allow maximum tooth movement, and the average treatment time is only 6-18 months.
Children will lose their first tooth around the age of 5, with some losing them as early as 4 and others as late as 7. As permanent teeth grow in, they will constantly move around and adjust themselves.This movement may not always be straight though. This can lead to issues with teeth and gum cleaning, and improving bite.
Ceramic braces are aesthetically better compared to metal braces since they do not attract as much attention as the stainless steel metal.
