There's less hassle involved in getting that perfect smile. Braces are now smaller, and treatment times are shorter.
The braces are made differently these days so that the brace, which is glued onto the tooth is much smaller.
There are also advances in technology in the wires which are used.
And braces are not just for kids. About one in five patients is now adult.
And though costly, they aren't strictly cosmetic. Well-aligned teeth lower the risk of gum disease.
When teeth are crooked, they're harder to keep clean. When they're in a straight row, they're easier to floss and brush their teeth.
