What Are The Orthodontic Options For Teeth Straightening?

by Neville Jones Dental Services

Orthodontics or orthodontia is one of the paramount fields of dentistry. People who practice this field are called orthodontists. They deal in diagnosing, preventing, and correcting misaligned teeth and jaw. There are many options available to achieve straight teeth in orthodontics.

Straight and well-aligned teeth are what make your smile delightful. They are an important part of your overall health and facial appearance. Whether you agree with your friend with a broad smile or be angry with him for being late, your teeth are always an important part. It is always difficult to manage to grind, chewing or eating sticky food with crowded and protruding teeth.

Straight teeth are the vital source of a perfect smile. It is important to treat the crooked teeth early on because when you continue eating with them, they cause strain to jaw muscle and tooth enamel due to inadequate collide of upper and lower jaw while eating.

There are many health as well as aesthetic benefits of having teeth in appropriate shape. They are easily cleaned, beat self-consciousness, and prevent major dental problems. Here are the options available in Somerset orthodontics for teeth straightening:

Traditional/Metal Braces

Metal braces consist of brackets, archwires, and elastic ties. They are still effective and widely accepted treatment for straightening malpositioned teeth. This dental practice requires extensive knowledge and good hands-on experience to get the best results. This treatment is fairly affordable than other treatments with the only drawback of look and feel.

Invisalign or clear aligners

Invisalign braces are getting popular due to their invisible traits. They are widely used as an alternative to traditional metal braces. They are clear plastic aligners that are removable and the best option for less severe orthodontic issues. It is important to consult a general dentist to know whether they are suitable for your dental condition. However, these aligners may take longer time in making the teeth in the desired position.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are invisible and one of the great options orthodontics offer for positioning teeth. They are custom-made and attached on the lingual (inner) side of the teeth. The orthodontist has to be adept to perform this Somerset dental practice because it is an individualized treatment. Lingual braces are made following the impression taking and x-rays are used for preparing a customized treatment plan.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent polycrystalline materials that are virtually the same in size and shape as metal braces.  These are a better choice for adults as they are tooth-colored and less noticeable to others. They are as effective as metal brackets and takes almost the same time to provide results. However, they are quite expensive.

Before taking any treatment, make sure you talk to your trusted general dentist Somerset. This is crucial because not all people are eligible for all treatments. Your dentist can tell you whether straightening teeth with one of the mentioned methods would be ideal as per your teeth bone structure and specific dental conditions.
