If you mentioned the word orthodontics years ago people would generally “cringe” at the thought. However, it isn’t like this anymore. Today there are many techniques and approaches which can be applied to solve teeth issues that are less dramatic than large, obtrusive braces:
- Traditional braces – Traditional metal braces with brackets and wire brackets are individually customised which ensures faster and better outcomes. Braces are available in metal or tooth-coloured options
- Lingual braces – These are placed on the inside of the teeth
- Orthodontic aligners – A ‘no braces’ or invisible approach
All of these techniques have their advantages and disadvantages.
