Orthodontic treatments are important in ensuring that you maintain great oral health in the future. Crooked, misshapen or drifting teeth have the potential to cause serious dental issues. You may not think that your child’s slightly out of place teeth will have a significant impact. As they continue to grow, a child’s teeth will move in the mouth and may cause discomfort, pain and embarrassment.
With suitable orthodontic adjustments, Dentists on the Square can correct crooked teeth and ensure that your child experiences better oral health as an adult. Advances in this field of dentistry mean that treatment times have been greatly reduced and results are much better than in the past. Adults can also receive orthodontic corrections at our Philadelphia office, so it’s never too late to achieve that perfect smile.
Traditional Versus Modern Innovation
At Dentists on the Square, we provide traditional braces or Invisalign aligners. There are several differences between the two methods. Each has distinct advantages over the other. Traditional braces are the stronger of the two devices, which means there is less chance of damage occurring during treatment. In many cases, aligners may not provide sufficient movement, which means that metal braces are still a better option for some patients.
Invisalign aligners are removable, which means that it is easier for patients to clean and floss while treatment is ongoing. The device is also nearly invisible, which can really help boost the confidence of patients who are already self-conscious about their smiles.
