Depends entirely upon your orthodontic needs
If you do not require extensive orthodontic work and are also looking for a discreet option than Invisalign might be the treatment for you. This orthodontic treatment involves a series of clear aligners that are changed every two to three weeks. The benefit being there are no tightening appointments: instead, you wear the next set of aligners.
Invisalign is a popular choice because it is clear, removable and less uncomfortable than traditional orthodontics. When you undergo Invisalign treatment you won’t have to change your diet. You just take out your aligners, eat your favourite meal, brush your teeth and then replace the aligners.
As long as you comply with your dentist’s instructions treatment should progress as planned.
What if I need extensive work?
If your orthodontic condition is such that Invisalign is not appropriate, Redlands Gentle Dental Care also offers traditional orthodontics. We offer metal braces and ceramic braces: these are an effective way to straighten your teeth and provide a healthier smile.
Straight teeth are healthier because they are easier to clean. Crooked teeth are more prone to decay and infection which leads to gum disease. They can also affect the alignment of your jaw which results in neck pain and headaches.
