Orthodontics & Braces
WHY DO YOU NEED THEM?
Orthodontics, is a dental procedure, that treats and fixes, crooked, uneven, unsymmetrical teeth into beautiful, natural ”they way it should be” type smile The days of heavy-duty metal braces and headgear are long gone. Advancements in Cosmetic Dentistry and orthodontics have resulted in many new types of braces for kids and adults. When it comes to modern orthodontics, you have a wide variety of options— some so advanced that no one may ever know you are wearing braces at all.
When you think of braces, the first thing that likely comes to mind is metal brackets and wires tightly adhered to the teeth, or a “mouth full of metal.” Today’s traditional braces are far less invasive or obvious. Many are smaller and incorporate heat-activated arch wires that use the body’s heat to expedite results and reduce associated pain.
Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time. When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by our doctors at Albany Dental.
