Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one’s appearance.
The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.

Ceramic Self ligation
There are a number of options to straighten misaligned or wrongly angled teeth. You can have the traditional metallic braces which are proven to do the job. One of the better options out there is using ceramic braces made of composite materials. They come in varying levels of transparency so you have ceramic brace that can take on the natural colour of the teeth or are thoroughly translucent to be called clear ceramic braces and they do not stain. Most adults prefer ceramic braces because they blend in with the colour of the teeth and are cosmetically less noticeable than metal.The main edge of ceramic braces is their aesthetic and cosmetic appeal.

Invisalign treatment consists of a series of invisible medical-grade polymer (plastic) aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life.
