What’s New in Orthodontic Treatment?

As with any health profession, orthodontic treatments are constantly changing and evolving, and new treatments becoming available. Surrey orthodontists are keeping an eye on many of these new trends to help with those who are looking for braces in Surrey.

Temporary Anchorage Devices

Temporary anchorage devices have been used for oral surgery in the past, but have found new use in orthodontics. These are small screws that can now be anchored between teeth and the jaw bone, reducing or altogether preventing unwanted movement. They can also easily be removed once treatment is finished.

3-D Smile Planning

New advances in 3-D planning software now allow orthodontists to use models of the patients facial features as a guide to see exactly what the outcome of a treatment will look like. This software can also help to guide the orthodontic steps, based on the patient’s specific needs.

Invisible Braces

Braces have long been metal brackets with elastic ligatures that pull on each tooth, slowly moving teeth into their desired positions. Traditional braces, while effective, can be less visually appealing, and cause physical discomfort at times. Modern solutions to braces are invisible braces. These systems, such as Invisalign, are almost unnoticeable, and often more comfortable than traditional metal braces.

These are just a few of the many new advancements in orthodontics. Surrey orthodontists are always changing and improving on their practice based on new trends and treatments in the field. IF you are considering braces, now is the time to talk to an orthodontist in Surrey.
