posted: May 10, 2019.
Orthodontics is the dental specialty of changing the alignment of teeth and jaws. Now, thanks to modern dental techniques, there are a few options to choose from. Which type of orthodontics you choose can be a difficult decision and one that should be made with the help of an expert like the professionals at My Braces Doctor in Fairfax, Fredericksburg and Manassas, VA.
Orthodontic techniques are used to correct a variety of alignment problems with your teeth and jaws including:
- Poorly aligned or crowded teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- An underbite caused when lower teeth protrude in front of upper teeth
- An overbite caused when upper teeth bite over lower teeth
- A crossbite caused when upper and lower jaws can’t close together
- An open bite caused when upper and lower front teeth don’t bite together
My Braces Doctor offers full-service orthodontic treatments including conventional braces using wires and brackets. The brackets can be made of either metal or plastic, and the wires can be either metal or tooth-colored.
If you want an orthodontic treatment that is virtually invisible, My Braces Doctor also offers Invisalign, a process using clear plastic aligners which are changed every few weeks. You will visit My Braces Doctor every six weeks to monitor your progress.
