Can You Straighten Your Teeth Without Braces?

Spring Retainers Can Correct Alignment Without Braces

Many people could improve their smile with braces, yet only a few of them are currently undergoing treatment. A common reason people use for not getting orthodontic treatment is because they think you need to wear metal braces. The team at Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry in Seattle can help set you (and your mouth) straight.

You don’t need metal braces for every tooth alignment issue, however. An orthodontic appliance known as a spring retainer is often a great solution for people who need minimal adjustment to correct alignment (and don’t have an overbite or underbite).

Spring retainers are removable, less noticeable, and less costly than conventional braces. Spring retainers can move teeth 1-2 mm in the desired direction, unlike traditional retainers. We often recommend them for orthodontic patients who didn’t wear their retainer after having orthodontic treatment in their teens.

Creating a spring retainer is not complicated: an orthodontics lab forms a mold of the teeth based on the desired end result. We use spring retainers  most frequently on the front teeth but sometimes use them for teeth farther back in the mouth.
