32 Little Changes That Will Make a Big Difference

32 Little Changes That Will Make a Big Difference
Posted on 08/28/2015

An adult human being has thirty-two teeth. While each individual tooth is very small, every single one of them are used every day. Teeth are important for so many things. They’re not just important for eating, but for both verbal and facial communication; a smile really is worth a thousand words.


On incredible fact is that our teeth change throughout our lives, and adult orthodontic treatments can help direct those changes into a beautiful smile. You will be amazed what a huge difference even the smallest change to your teeth can make for your smile. Your smile is incredibly important because this is how you present yourself to other people and create that lasting first impression. Our smiles can shape how other people perceive us and, ultimately, the way we see ourselves as well.

This is why you need to know how to get the most out of your braces. Booking a consultation at Cordoba Orthodontics is the first step to finding out what is the best course of action for you to take personally in order to come closer to your best smile. Most treatments involve the use of braces, but did you know there are several different types of braces that you can choose from?

Removable Braces

Did you know that there are options for braces that allow you to take the braces out of your mouth when needed? Made of wires and springs attached to a plate that may be taken out, its flexibility and simplicity make it a great adult orthodontics treatment to use when possible. Flexible wires are what are used to guide the teeth into their proper position.

Fixed Appliance

This is the conventional system of brackets and bands that are bonded to the teeth to guide them into place. There are a couple variations of these type of braces that are popular among adults. These include clear braces and lingual braces.

Clear braces are ceramic and far more discreet than the standard metal braces, blending in with the natural pigment of your teeth. The other option for a fixed appliance are lingual braces. These are very similar to the conventional braces that are bonded to the front of your teeth with metal brackets, but instead they are bonded to the back of the teeth closest to the tongue, hidden from view.

Invisible Braces

As a revolutionary new technology in adult orthodontics, invisible braces use a series of computer-designed clear plastic molds (or ‘aligners’) to straighten teeth over time. They are almost impossible to spot and can be removed for eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth. This orthodontics treatment is available for adults and teenagers alike. The most popular brand of invisible braces is Invisalign.
