Find Out How Braces Have Advanced Over Time

Posted .

Whether you believe it or not, braces are simpler, better, and even more convenient, compared to the appliances doctors used to use to align the teeth. This is because orthodontic technology has advanced over time. Dr. Christopher Liang would like to share some details.

First, braces are more attractive. Metal braces are smaller and simpler and they can be customized to your preference. Ceramic braces are tough to see because they have tooth-colored bands and wires. Lingual braces are also hard to see because they are placed behind the teeth, so no one, not even you, will notice them. Invisalign® is a clear, plastic aligner that can align your teeth while being almost invisible.

Second, the new braces provide better performance and less pain. This is because the hardware is made of nickel, and copper- titanium wires that apply pressure to the brackets and shift the smile using the natural body heat. Also, braces don’t have to be tightened or adjusted as often because of these new advancements in technology.

Third, there are many appliance options to choose from. You can align your smile with metal braces, clear braces, Damon braces, ceramic braces, clear aligners, Invisalign aligners, self-ligating braces, lingual braces, and more. Every option can give you the smile you want and the control, comfort, and convenience you need.
