The invention of orthodontics for straightening teeth is credited to French dentist Pierre Fauchard in 1728. That is a mighty long time for braces to evolve. Depending on your age, you may have even seen drastic changes in your lifetime. Awkward headgear and bulky brackets and wires have improved over the years. Orthodontic treatment is even invisible in some cases. Can it get any better than that? Lake Country orthodontist, Dr. Ciro Cabal sees a bright future for innovations in orthodontic care, which may be good news to you, your kids, and even your grandkids as the years march on.
Orthodontic treatments have vastly improved in the last thirty years or so. What used to be something teens dreaded, and adults refused to even consider has now become embraced by many people who are on a worthy quest towards a straight, beautiful smile. NASA actually developed the archwire which connects brackets in traditional braces, but things have taken off like a rocket from there. The latest technology makes orthodontic experiences easier, faster, and incognito. There is now a wide variety of options so you can easily select a plan that is right for you, your orthodontic needs, and your lifestyle.
Keeping Braces on the Down-Low
Perhaps one of the most important innovations in the evolution of orthodontics is the cosmetic appeal of many treatments. Two services we are proud to provide at Lake Country Orthodontics are: tooth-colored brackets and Invisalign.
Tooth Colored Brackets: Using a stain-resistant, composite material, tooth-colored brackets make your orthodontic treatment more attractive than ever before. These brackets blend in smoothly with teeth, making bulky metal brackets a thing of the past. At a distance or in pictures, your friends and coworkers will barely notice you’re wearing them.
Invisalign: The Invisalign clear alignment system has become very popular over the last decade. This modern approach to straightening teeth uses a series of specially designed aligners, made of smooth, invisible plastic, to gradually shift your teeth into the perfect arch. It’s almost as discrete and easy as never having braces in the first place.
