Misalignment of the teeth is one of the most common orthodontic problems. The wrong positioning of the teeth can lead to serious dental health problems. Luckily, it is possible to fix the problem by restoring the proper positioning of the teeth, something that is made possible by dental braces.
The braces work by straightening the teeth and gradually shifting them to their proper position. They are therefore worn until the desired results are achieved – which can be anywhere between a few months or even some years depending on the seriousness of the problem.
There are several types of braces that are available for treating teeth alignment issues:
Invisalign treatment is another option that can help fix your teeth alignment issues. The Invisalign aligners work the same way as the braces – by shifting your misaligned teeth to their proper position. However, Invisalign aligners are quite different from braces in some ways:
Once you have achieved the desired teeth position, you can remove your braces or aligners. However, doing so also releases the tension placed on the teeth, which can cause them to start shifting again. To prevent this, dental retainers are used to hold the teeth in their desired position, until your gums and the jawbone develop enough support to hold them on their own.
