The Different Types of Braces

By February 13, 2018 No Comments

In recent years, a growing number of adults have embraced the concept of correcting the alignment of their teeth with braces. Not only can orthodontics improve the appearance of your smile, but treatments can reduce the potential for your teeth.

There are several different forms of braces available at Wayne Family Orthodontics’s orthodontic clinic. Which style Dr. Muhammad Abey recommends will be based on your personal preference as well as the degree of misalignment.

Traditional braces use a series of small metal brackets, wires, and other hardware. Parts of your orthodontic work are cemented to your teeth and are connected to wires and other components.
With traditional braces, you will need to periodically return for regularly scheduled adjustments. This will apply progressive tension to your braces and gradually bring your teeth closer to their ideal alignment and position.

If you’re not comfortable with a smile full of orthodontic hardware, our orthodontist can apply a special porcelain glaze to some of the braces hardware. This material can be shaded to match your natural tooth enamel and lessen the visual impact of your braces.

For a more discreet look, a clear plastic orthodontic option like Invisalign® might be the answer to correcting your smile. Each set of custom aligners gradually moves your teeth closer to their ideal alignment.

If you live in the Wayne, New Jersey, region and you have alignment issues with your teeth, call 973-341-3180 to set up a consultation at Wayne Family Orthodontics.
