Orthodontic Alignment treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. It can also help to look after the long-term health of one's teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all one's teeth. Often, teeth need to be guided accurately using a removable brace. So, a fixed brace is used. This has brackets and bands which are temporarily stuck to the teeth. A flexible wire joins all the brackets and allows the teeth to be moved. One may also opt for invisible braces as they are tough, clear plastic 'aligners' (moulds) that are used to straighten teeth. Several sets of specially moulded, slightly different aligners are made for each patient. Each set is worn for two weeks before being replaced with the next one. They are made from clear plastic, so they are nearly invisible. This means that no one needs to know you are straightening your teeth. The aligners should be worn for 22 to 23 hours a day for the best results. They can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and for cleaning in between your teeth. One may need to have all the adult teeth before one can have this treatment.Sometimes delicate elastic bands are attached to a fixed brace to help move the teeth.
