Multiband TechniqueIn the multiband technique, small retaining plates, called brackets, are bonded to the teeth and are connected with tension wire so that tooth misalignment shifts over time. The multiband technique is used primarily for teenagers but can be adopted just as well by adults requiring tooth alignment.
InvisalignInvisible retainers, called Invisalign, can be used for the treatment of misaligned teeth. With this system, it is possible to correct tooth alignment in a nearly invisible way. The clear retainers form a transparent plastic cover and are constructed based on the patient’s mouth.Retainers are inserted over teeth for daily wear.
Tooth conditions which usually can be treated using invisible retainers include:
- missing tooth/teeth
- closed bite
Lingual TechniqueLingual technique is a fixed brace on the inside of the teeth and not visible from the outside of the mouth. Professionals (and especially adults) like to take advantage of this invisible technique.
MiniscrewsMiniscrews are temporary mini dental implants used for targeted correction. The anchor is set so that the force is applied directly to the tooth or teeth which require correction. This leads to an acceleration of the treatment process.
Even the appearance of minis crews is inconspicuous compared to other teeth straightening options.
