When the time comes to have your teeth straightened, your choice should primarily be based on what is going to work best for you and get your teeth fixed up so they will be healthy for the rest of your life. However, you want your treatment to be comfortable as well, so before taking the first option that is offered to you, you should shop around because there are some incredible choices out there. Fixed braces get the job done efficiently as they keep your teeth on the move 24 hours a day; however they have evolved greatly over the past couple of decades using materials that look discreet in your mouth and some are self tightening, which means fewer visits to your dentist throughout your treatment. If they have one drawback, it is they are notoriously hard to clean and you have to be vigilant at all times. This problem is removed though if you opt for some of the spectacular removable aligners on the market today. With these treatments you only have to make sure that you wear the aligners for the minimum of 22 hours a day, which makes cleaning your teeth very easy indeed. And if you are concerned about your vanity, then you should definitely take a look at some of the clear aligners around today; once they are in your mouth, they are barely visible to the naked eye.
