When you think of braces, do you think of big, unattractive brackets and wires that slowly move your teeth? If so, think again. Because of advancements in orthodontic technology, Dr. Tayo Ogunsola can align your teeth with better, simpler, and even more convenient appliances. In fact, our orthodontic team is happy to explain how braces have advanced over time.

First, new braces are better looking. The traditional metal braces are smaller and more unique because they have decorative bands. Ceramic braces are made of tooth-colored hardware that make them harder to see. Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth, so no one, not even you, will see them. Invisalign® is a clear, plastic aligner that can align your teeth all while being virtually invisible.

Second, the new orthodontic appliances offer better performance and cause less pain. This is because the nickel and copper titanium hardware move the teeth using the natural heat of your body. In addition, because of this new technology, braces don’t have to be tightened as often.

Third, there are multiple orthodontic treatment options, which means you do not have to align your smile with metal braces. You can use clear braces, Damon braces, ceramic braces, clear aligners, Invisalign aligners, self-ligating braces, lingual braces, and more. These treatments can give you the smile results you desire all while giving you the control, comfort, and convenience you need.
