Are you an adult who has considered Orthodontics, but have been put off by the thought of a mouthful of metal and pain? Well don’t be!
Through the continual advancements in the field of Orthodontics, today treatment is more refined and the materials used are stronger and less intrusive.
No more bulky metal brackets or ‘train tracks’ running across teeth! Many Orthodontic treatments are now so discrete no one will even know you are wearing them. Just a few of the advancements in Orthodontics include:
- Brackets are smaller and some are clear
- Treatment times are shorter
- The arch wires (connecting brackets) are fastened differently to prevent irritation of the gums and cheek
- Invisalign (the invisible way to straighten your teeth) is now available
If you are an adult considering Orthodontic treatment, contact West Hills Family Dentistry Center today and arrange a consultation. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will answer any questions you may have and advise you on the best course of treatment.
