Cosmetic and Conventional Orthodontics

Overview

You may associate braces with middle school or high school students. However, more adults than ever are turning to orthodontics for a functional bite as well as cosmetic repositioning of teeth. Modern braces can be made from clear or tooth-colored structures, and some dentists offer clear, removable aligners.

Logistics

Your general dentist may recommend functional related orthodontics as well as cosmetic orthodontics to reposition your teeth for a more attractive appearance. Traditional braces involve brackets glued to teeth and a wire that gently forces teeth into proper alignment. Clear braces can refer to clear brackets and wires or completely acrylic aligners, much like a retainer, that move teeth. Talk with the dentist about your options for functional or cosmetic orthodontic therapy, and he’ll recommend the best solution for your case and lifestyle.
