Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today’s orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be. Thanks, in part, to shape-memory NiTi wires.
With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This gets rid of the need for wire tightening. This means you spend less time in braces, and the time you do spend is more comfortable.
At Shin Orthodontics, we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.
