However there are still many people who are self-conscious about wearing braces despite the massive improvements that have been made and for people who are looking for another option there are now new treatment-approach alternatives to having traditional braces such as 'Hidden' or 'Invisible' braces and 'Lingual Braces.'
These involve the use of plastic aligners to realign your teeth as opposed to the wires and brackets of traditional braces.
The aligners are made of thin and clear plastic and it's pretty difficult for other people to see that you're actually wearing them.
The beauty of the aligners is that you remove them when you're eating or cleaning your teeth so they offer far less hassle.
These are more like traditional braces except for the significant fact that they are mounted on the back of your teeth making them virtually impossible to see.
Both of the above options are perfect for people who are worried about having braces and feel that their confidence will be altered by having to wear them.
