Although, traditional braces help to correct misaligned or crooked teeth the metal wires and brackets can initially be quite painful. Also, there are lots dietary restrictions that come along with braces because certain types of food can get stuck inside the metal brackets or if they are hard to bite into like a candy apple for instance, they can damage the brackets. However, now thanks to recent advancements in orthodontic dentistry there are other options made readily available for patients who are suffering from misaligned teeth or teeth that are crooked. The number one new option that has emerged thanks to advancements in orthodontics is Invisalign aligners.
