Teeth straightening has come a long way with the advances in Science and Technology. If you have decided to get your teeth straightened, now is the best time. There are so many options available. Teeth straightening is not just done for cosmetic purposes but also for dental health conditions too. Now, get an aesthetic smile that makes you want to show off those pearly whites while ensuring a healthy set of teeth at every chance you get.
We all desire an aesthetic smile like that on the models in those large billboards. According to experts, deciding to have your teeth straightened is always a good idea. Straightening also improves the functioning of the teeth and the jaw muscles in general. A dental disorder exposes patients to a number of complications:
– Increased number of cavities due to the complexity of cleaning overlapping teeth
– Fractures in poorly positioned teeth
– Chronic inflammation of the gums
– Temporomandibular joint problems
Braces have been popular for the last many decades. We have seen the evolution of these metal teeth straighteners from plain to colorful to even ceramic braces. However, another contender to get you the most desirable aesthetic smile entered the market in the last decade and is slowly taking over the dental world. Yes, we are talking about the Clear Aligners! These customized, near-invisible plastic trays are a better-looking substitute to traditional braces.
While both clear aligners and traditional braces are popular and effective ways to get an aesthetic smile, they are quite different in their approach to straightening your teeth.
Braces correct the position of the teeth both individually and simultaneously. A small metal or porcelain bracket is bonded to the front of the teeth and interconnected by an archwire, the tightness of which may vary, to gradually shift the teeth according to a predetermined plan. This setup applies very slight but steady pressure on the teeth to move them into their optimal position. The wire will need to be replaced several times with a thicker wire to continue shifting the teeth until the desired results are obtained.
On the other hand, clear aligners do not use brackets or wires. It is a modern and near-invisible method for correcting the majority of orthodontic problems. They align teeth just as braces do, but using a transparent, removable aligner. Aligners are designed to make small movements at a time, by putting gentle pressure on your teeth. That pressure is transferred through your roots to your jaws. During this gradual shift, your gums are reforming around each tooth. Once every tooth is in its proper place, your gums will adhere snugly to the teeth. Treatment with clear aligners involves creating a virtual model of your teeth with a computer program to show you all of the steps involved, from the initial position of the teeth up to the final desired result. This way, you can actually see what changes you can expect and the order in which they will happen. Then according to your treatment plan, customized trays or aligners will be 3D printed which you can wear to get your desired aesthetic smile.
Clear aligners have grown in popularity over the past couple of decades as an option for straightening or realigning your teeth. A few of the reasons why people should or do go for aligners than braces include:
