What are invisible braces?
We are always looking for preventive ways of treating our patients to ensure that they have healthy stable mouths for life. Orthodontics is the least destructive way of achieving large changes in the position of teeth and ensuring the longevity of the teeth.
Invisible braces are used as treatment for teeth that are malpositioned. This can occur for a variety of reasons and is very common.
Teeth that are malpositioned can be problematic as they can be prone to gum disease and tooth decay. Furthermore, imbalances in the bite can cause damage to the teeth and can result in bite discrepancies and make eating difficult. In addition, the aesthetic appearance of the teeth can be compromised.
Advancements in modern day orthodontics has revolutionised the way we manage bite discrepancies and teeth can be moved quickly and discreetly to improve their position and provide the perfect smile.
