How Can Crooked Teeth Be Corrected? Methods to Fix Your Smile

Crowded teeth are a problem faced by many people. This can affect the smile and cause a lack of self-confidence for some people. Fortunately, modern dental technology offers many options for correcting crooked teeth. Here are the treatment methods for correcting crooked teeth:

How Can Crooked Teeth Be Corrected? Methods:

  • Transparent Plaque Treatment: Dentistry technology offers alternative options such as clear plaque treatment. Transparent plaque treatment is one of the most preferred orthodontic treatment methods recently. In this treatment method, a transparent plaque is attached to your teeth and this plaque straightens the teeth over time.
  • Wire Therapy: It is one of the most widely used treatment methods. Wire therapy straightens your teeth using specially designed brackets and wires. Brackets are attached to the teeth and wires are passed between the brackets. The wires can be adjusted over time to control the movement of the teeth.
  • Internal Wire Treatment: This treatment method straightens your teeth from the inside using specially designed wires. This method is less visible than traditional wire treatment and is a particularly suitable option for adult patients.
  • Mobile Dental Treatment: Mobile dental treatment moves your teeth using a specially designed device. This device can be adjusted over time to control the movement of the teeth.
  • Surgical Intervention: Surgical intervention moves your teeth using specially designed devices. This method allows the teeth to move faster and, unlike other methods, can be used for more serious dental problems.
