For your convenience, orthodontics has made many technological advancements to make treatment more successful, convenient, and beneficial. There are already many differences between orthodontics back in the day and orthodontics now, and some of those differences are:
Orthodontic appliances now are better looking
Braces in the past were made of one material: stainless steel. They were also glued to the front surfaces of the teeth. Now, there are many improvements with braces, which gives you the option of aligning your smile with different products. There are many products available, including ceramic braces, lingual braces, Damon braces, Invisalign®, and more.
Orthodontic appliances now have better performance and less pain
Because braces used to be made out of stainless steel, they would stretch and wear out, requiring the orthodontist to replace and tighten the braces often. Now, many orthodontists are using appliances that are made of nickel or copper titanium, which are beneficial materials that put pressure on the brackets and move the teeth through natural body heat.
Orthodontic appliances now offer more options for different needs
Nowadays, you have multiple options for aligning your smile. You can straighten your teeth with removable aligners, braces that are glued to the back of your teeth, natural-looking braces, and more. Now, appliances are more attractive, effective, and durable.
