New Technologies Make Orthodontics Even Better and Simpler

Orthodontic TreatmentOrthodontic treatments change more than just the looks of a person; it also improves a patient’s outlooks as well as his/her overall health. Although one of the biggest benefits of getting braces in Sutton Coldfield is a more beautiful, healthier smile, says it does a lot more good than just that. All in all correctly placed and maintained oral health leads to better overall health.

Best of all, orthodontic treatments have undergone serious innovations and improvements, allowing even adults with enough healthy teeth, gums, and bone benefit from it.

Here are just a few of the best innovations in the orthodontic industry:

Self-litigating braces

Self-ligating systems, are some of the new orthodontic appliances. They utilise a use a slide self-opening and – closing mechanism where the dentist puts the wire in place. The way they can open and close by themselves makes the wire free to slide and move inside.

This solution achieves results that traditional ones cannot or have difficulties doing so. For instance, the reduced pressure and friction lessens patient discomfort. The teeth moving forces also speeds up the alignment and proper positioning of the teeth.

Non-visible/clear braces

Non-visible or clear braces, (more commonly referred to as invisible braces) like the Invisalign braces certified Sutton orthodontics offer, produces the same results as traditional and the more modern self-litigating braces. Unlike both, though, these do not make use of brackets. Instead, patients use custom-made aligners that are so clear they look like they are not wearing any orthodontic appliance at all.

They also effectively treat different types of teeth and jaw problems, such as gaps, crowding, crossbites, underbites, overbites, and other cases of misalignment. Since you can remove these appliances, you can also choose to eat or drink whatever you want, without worrying about damaging your aligners. Just make sure you brush and floss properly afterwards so that no food particles will remain stuck prior to putting the appliances back in place.

Thanks to technology, you now have better, more effective means to straighten teeth, have a more beautiful smile, and reduce other serious oral health problems.
