What means are used for aligning the teeth?

Orthodontic procedures may be done at any age, and various instruments may be used, such as transparent braces, to achieve dental esthetics during the treatment too.

1. Ordinary braces

  • These braces, which are very reliable, are used in most cases. Their esthetic disadvantage is that they are metallic, although many people even choose to highlight their braces using colored rubber bands as a fashion statement.

2. Transparent braces

  • Transparent orthodontics – these braces function like ordinary braces, but are transparent and therefore more esthetic.

3. Internal (lingual) orthodontics

  • These braces are bonded to the inner side of the tooth and are therefore esthetic, as they are not visible at all when smiling. They are suitable for most orthodontic cases. The disadvantage of these braces is longer treatment time.

4. Quick, braces-free orthodontics – Clear Aligner

  • These braces are bonded to the inner side of the tooth and are therefore esthetic, as they are not visible at all when smiling. They are suitable for most orthodontic cases. The disadvantage of these braces is longer treatment time.

5. Sophisticated new methods

  • Enormous technological progress has been made until today and orthodontic treatments may be completed elegantly and more quickly. For example: self-locking metal braces (without rubber bands), thus allowing for quicker, and safer treatment (up to 40%), for example, Innovation or Damon type braces.
