Traditional metal braces can be replaced by a number of options. In our office, we provide a range of choices that can better meet your needs than a conventional course of treatment. We are delighted to go through all of your alternatives with you so that you can come up with a treatment strategy that suits both your financial situation and your objectives.
Your teeth’s backs are covered by lingual braces, which hide the appearance of ceramic or conventional braces. This is a very new form of treatment, and not all clinics provide it. Our staff has experience using lingual braces and can provide you with this therapy if you so want.
Another highly common alternative is ceramic braces. Ceramic braces can sometimes be more aesthetically pleasing since they are less obvious than conventional metal ones. If you choose ceramic, you should be especially careful to steer clear of chewy or hard meals because ceramic is not as durable as metal. Your ceramic braces can be specially made so that they exactly match the shade of your natural teeth.
Traditional braces or invisible aligners?
A recent, well-liked dental procedure called Invisalign can help straighten your teeth. Your transparent Invisalign trays can be taken out when you eat, brush your teeth, and even for special occasions, unlike traditional braces. Traditional braces don’t demand nearly as much self-control as Invisalign. Since the trays are removable at will, you must keep them in for the majority of the time for the treatment to be effective. Invisalign can take, on average, longer than traditional braces and isn’t recommended for most major dental procedures. We can go through your options with you and help you make the best choice for your dental care because our office offers Invisalign.
Should I Get Braces?
Traditional braces are a fantastic option for anyone who wants a straighter, more uniform smile. They are available to both adults and children. Traditional braces are generally recommended, secure, and acceptable for kids above seven, though every case differs. Regarding elderly patients, there is no upper age limit for the treatment plan; people of all ages often obtain braces to straighten their teeth.
