Many patients undergo orthodontic treatment to improve the look and health of crooked teeth, as well and correct a bad bite. Over the years, orthodontic care such as braces has become very popular. If you are considering braces, there are many different types that could help you achieve a stunning smile.
Modern orthodontics offer a variety of benefits to address a wide range of alignment conditions for children and adults. The following options for braces may be ideal to enhance your tooth alignment:
Traditional Metal Braces
The most common type of braces, metal braces can benefit children, teens and adults due to their durability and permanent nature. Traditional braces can improve several kinds of bite problems, more so than other types of braces, making them the most ideal for severe conditions.
Though similar to metal braces in look and function, ceramic braces are clear or tooth-colored to blend with your teeth and offer discreet treatment. They can be recommended for older teens or adults since they are more brittle than metal braces and can stain if not cared for.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
These removable plastic trays fully cover the teeth to gradually adjust the bite, and while they are not as fast acting and powerful as metal braces, their convenient nature and discreet appearance make them very popular for adults.
