Worried About Orthodontic Care? What You Should Know

Is concern about orthodontic treatment holding you back from correcting your alignment issues? If you are hesitant about having braces (or if you are trying to coax a stubborn child into orthodontic care), having more information can be helpful. One thing you should know is that modern technology can make orthodontic work less involved, and more comfortable. Instead of steel, the arches of braces are now made with a nickel-titanium alloy, which can move for longer periods of time, and will require less manual adjustments. Advances in imaging technology, and other material changes, can offer a treatment that is considerably more comfortable than you are anticipating.

Modern Technology On Your Initial Visit

With technology like the iTero digital scanner, and a Galileos ConeBeam CT scan, your orthodontist can create advanced, detailed images of your jaw and teeth. By taking these digital images, you can be spared the unpleasantness of biting into a plaster mold to create an impression.

Finding The Right Way To Correct Your Smile

There is more than one way to approach orthodontic treatment. You may be able to have a straight smile without having to wear braces at all! Qualifying patients can have a less intrusive correction through Invisalign. Invisalign makes it possible to remove your appliance when you need to eat, or when you are cleaning your teeth. They are also considerably harder to notice. If you need traditional braces, you can ask your orthodontist about tooth-colored brackets. Brackets made from ceramic have positive cosmetic qualities, and can create less irritation.
