Invisalign is for adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth without the obvious look of traditional braces. Before choosing Invisalign, there is some important information you should consider.
For many people, linugal braces are the best of two worlds when it comes to orthodontic treatment. On one hand, they force consistent wear (unlike removable aligners), but are also invisible when worn. Like any orthodontic treatment though, they have their pros and cons.
Whether you have braces or Invisalign, you will have to pay periodic visits to your orthodontist’s office throughout your treatment process, so that your orthodontist can monitor your progress.
Lingual braces go behind the teeth, keeping them hidden from sight, and “translucent” braces are made of a tooth-coloured ceramic material that blends in with the colour of your teeth. We hope this post will help you decide which option would be best for you!
Tongue thrusting (also called reverse swallowing or immature swallow) is an orofacial muscular imbalance that causes the tongue to protrude through the anterior incisors during speech, swallowing, and in some cases when the tongue is at rest. It can cause serious orthodontic problems if unaddressed.
