There are various ways to correct crooked or crowded teeth without the use of traditional braces. One method involves attaching brackets and wire to the back of your teeth. In this case, extra oral hygiene is paramount and you will have to use a special flossing tool. Another technique works by way of placing, in sequence, clear, hard plastic retainers over your teeth (i.e. Invisalign). Each varies in shape and is customized to your bite. They must be removed for eating and may influence your speech. Whether you are an adult or a teen, Dr. Nivens will help you decide which method is best for you.
