          What are braces/aligners?

          Fixed braces and aligners are both orthodontic treatments used to correct dental misalignments and improve the alignment of teeth. However, they differ in terms of their design and the materials used.

          Fixed braces is a traditional orthodontic treatment that consists of metal or ceramic brackets bonded to the teeth and connected with wires. The brackets are placed on each tooth, and the wires are adjusted periodically to apply pressure, gradually moving the teeth into the desired position. Braces are typically adjusted by your orthodontist during regular appointments.

          Aligners, on the other hand, are a more discreet alternative to braces and consist of the aligners themselves as well as attachments that are white fillings glued onto your teeth. The aligners are clear, custom-made trays that fit over the teeth and gradually shift them into place and the attachments are prescribed by your orthodontist onto specific teeth. Aligners are typically made from a transparent plastic material, making them virtually invisible when worn. They are removable, allowing for easier oral hygiene and the ability to eat without restrictions. The aligners need to be replaced every week as the teeth gradually move.

          Both braces and aligners can treat a wide range of malocclusions and the choice between fixed braces and aligners depends on various factors where a huge aspect is patient preference.

          When to know when you need them?

          Determining whether you need orthodontic treatment is best done by consulting with a qualified orthodontist. They are dental specialists who are trained to diagnose and treat misalignments of the teeth and jaws. However, there are some common signs and conditions that may indicate the need for orthodontic treatment. Here are a few indicators:

          Please note that these are general indicators, and your orthodontist will need to accurately assess your specific dental situation and recommend the appropriate treatment. They will conduct a thorough examination, which may include radiographs, scans of your teeth, and photographs, to determine if orthodontic treatment is necessary and provide you with a tailored treatment plan.

          What does the procedure/fitting of braces/aligners look like?

          Here's an overview of what you can expect for each:

          It's important to note that the duration of treatment varies depending on the complexity of your case and the recommended treatment plan. Regular compliance with wearing aligners or attending adjustment appointments for braces is crucial for successful outcomes.

          How do you take care of your braces/aligners post-procedure?

          Taking care of your braces or aligners is important to maintain good oral hygiene and ensure effective treatment. Here are some guidelines for caring for your braces and aligners:
