If you want to forgive someone, then just begin to smile, and you will begin to live again. Smiling is easier when your teeth are perfectly straight and you have a firm bite to consume nutritious fresh vegetables and fruit. When your teeth are misaligned, you can visit an orthodontist to learn more about the different types of braces, headgear and retainers available to create a gorgeous smile. You might learn that the best type of orthodontia for your malocclusions is traditional wire and metal brackets or Invisalign aligners instead.
A parent should take a child to an orthodontist as they are getting their first permanent teeth, and an adult can also request an evaluation for their own teeth. A child can wear modern braces such as:
• Color wires and brackets
• Damon Clear
Alternatively, adults with mild malocclusions can wear clear Invisalign aligners that are easy to remove while they are eating meals or brushing their teeth. Imagine how much fun it is to wear aligners at the same time your children are wearing braces. You can help each other throughout the process with reminders about flossing your teeth each day to avoid cavities and bad breath.
Unique Smiles for Your Facial Structure

Certain guidelines are used by these professionals to create a WOW smile that shows off your new straight teeth from the front of your mouth to the back.
