It is not unusual that drugs may be required either during your dental appointment or afterwards and sometimes both. The type and amount will be dictated by the type of treatment you are having and to a lesser extent the type of patient you are and how you react to pain. I find however, that some patients are unsure about why certain drugs are used, the benefits they can provide plus the potential risks, especially if not used or administered properly.
Orthodontics is a type of dental treatment that aims to improve the appearance, position and function of crooked or abnormally arranged teeth. Orthodontic treatment may be commenced for clinical (medical) reasons such as to improve how the teeth meet and therefore function, or for cosmetic purposes such as straightening teeth or closing gaps. There are several systems available to do this, one of which is Invisalign.
