Braces & Aligners At Smile Works Dental Clinic
You Get The Best Braces & Aligners
Braces use brackets connected by wires to encourage teeth to move. Aligners are a series of tight-fitting custom-made mouthpieces that slip over the teeth, aligners help with spacing, crowding, mid line discrepancy, tipping, rotation, intrusion and extrusion. In addition to improving your smile, they can improve your health. Properly aligned teeth allow for better hygiene and cleaning of gums. Misaligned or crowded teeth could have long-term negative effects on gums, jaw muscles, enamel and bones.
There are many different types of orthodontic braces available. Each type, though made of varying components, realigns the teeth to enhance chewing, biting, and aesthetics. Available styles of orthodontic appliances allow the wearer a great amount of flexibility, control and convenience.
The two main types of braces available are removable and fixed devices. As the names suggest, removable devices can be moved into and out of the mouth at any time, while fixed devices are both applied and removed by the orthodontist. Though fixed dental braces are often used to correct severe alignment issues, removable devices are popular because they afford the wearer more control over their treatment.
