Early orthodontic treatment can include narrow upper jaws, the fixing of jaw size discrepancies, rectify damage from thumb sucking, correcting cross bites and deep bites as well as dental drifting caused by the early loss of baby teeth.
Invisalign™ is another fantastic orthodontic option for patients seeking a discreet, cosmetically appealing treatment type.
Invisalign™ consists of a series of clear plastic trays that are worn over the teeth, with each tray being worn for between one and two weeks. The number of trays required will depend upon how misaligned the teeth are at the beginning of the treatment.
The Invisalign™ trays do need to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours per day for tooth movement to be effective. However, because the trays are removable, they make brushing and flossing easier that with braces.
