When describing orthodontics, most people just refer to braces. While the majority of orthodontic cases involve braces, there are alternatives that may be used for younger children or adults. Many young children can benefit from appliances to help correct bad oral habits or to promote jaw growth. These appliances can sometimes prevent the need for braces in the future. Teens and adults can benefit from Invisalign, the clear solution for straightening teeth. Invisalign aligners are nearly undetectable so they are visually different from metal brackets. The aligners are removable so eating, brushing, and flossing are no problem. You can still enjoy your favorite foods and smile without holding back.
