Beyond Braces: How Can the Latest Orthodontic Treatments Help YouIn recent years, orthodontic treatments have evolved beyond traditional braces, offering patients a range of options to achieve straighter, healthier teeth.

These latest orthodontic treatments are more comfortable, discreet, and effective, making them a popular choice for people of all ages.

I’m writing this article because I’m bestselling personal development author and research geek on behavioral change (with 2 million books and course sold). I’ve spent countless hours learning about how people can live their best lives.

I even created the Tweak a Week Online Course – to help people make small, positive changes in their habits that lead to the best results.

With this in mind I wrote this article on braces and how the latest orthodontic treatments can help you to have the best results with your teeth.

How the Latest Orthodontic Treatments Can Help You

Below I share a list of  some of the latest orthodontic treatments offered by a Winnipeg orthodontist and explain how you can achieve the perfect smile.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are popular for people who want to align their teeth without the discomfort and appearance of metal braces. These aligners are made of transparent plastic. They are virtually invisible, making them an ideal choice for adults who want to avoid the stigma of traditional braces.

Clear aligners are custom-made for each patient. They work by gently shifting teeth into the desired position over time. Patients wear the aligners for about 14 days before moving on to the next set in the series. The treatment period varies. It depends on the severity of the case. But most people achieve great results within 12-18 months.

Lingual Braces

These are another discreet option for individuals who want to align their teeth without the appearance of traditional braces. These are attached to the back of the teeth. As a result, they’re almost invisible from the front. Best of all, they’re custom-made for each patient. They work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth to move them into the desired position.

Such devices are a good choice for people who play sports or musical instruments that may be affected by traditional trusses. They are also a good option for people who want to maintain a professional appearance during treatment.

Self-Ligating Braces

These are traditional braces that use a slider mechanism to hold the archwire in place instead of elastic bands. This allows the teeth to move freely and with less friction. The result? You enjoy a more comfortable treatment experience. Self-ligating trusses also require much lesser adjustments than traditional ones. This means fewer visits to the orthodontist.

These devices are a good option for people with complex orthodontic issues that cannot be corrected with clear aligners or lingual braces. They are also suitable for people who want a more discreet option than traditional trusses.

Accelerated Orthodontics

Accelerated orthodontics is a technique that speeds up the movement of teeth into the desired position. This technique can reduce treatment time by up to 50% compared to traditional orthodontic treatment. Accelerated orthodontics can be achieved using various methods, including surgical and non-surgical options.

Non-surgical options include orthodontic appliances that apply high-frequency vibration or low-level light therapy to the tooth-bones to accelerate the movement of teeth. Surgical options include using a micro-osteoperforation technique that creates tiny holes in the bone around the teeth to stimulate the body’s natural healing response and accelerate tooth movement.


The latest orthodontic treatments by a skilled orthodontist offer patients various options to achieve the perfect smile. From clear aligners to lingual braces, self-ligating braces, and accelerated orthodontics, a treatment option can meet your needs. With the latest orthodontic treatments, you can achieve a healthier, straighter smile that you can be proud of.
