When we think orthodontic treatment we generally think braces. That’s because braces are the primary treatment used by orthodontists. While braces have become more streamlined in their approach they aren’t the only options for straightening teeth.
Orthodontic dentistry specializes in correcting misaligned jaws and crooked teeth, but the importance of straight teeth goes beyond a beautiful smile. On the most basic level having an improperly aligned jaw or teeth can make it difficult to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums. These problematic areas can put you at greater risk for tooth loss from tooth decay and periodontal disease. Before you lock down on traditional metal braces being the only way to straighten teeth, check out some of the other orthodontic treatments for straightening teeth.
