Are you considering orthodontic treatment with braces? If so, good for you! You’re on your way toward the straight and healthy smile you desire. Fortunately, when it comes to aligning your smile, you have many options. Our orthodontist, Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla, is thrilled to tell you all about them.
One option is traditional metal braces. This appliance is the one you probably see most often. It is made of metal wires and brackets as well as colorful bands. This option is usually the cheapest and it successfully moves the smile with regular adjustment appointments.
Another option is ceramic braces. Ceramic braces are like traditional braces because they look almost identical. However, instead of being a grey, metal color, they are the color of your teeth. This makes them less noticeable.
Another option is lingual braces. Lingual braces are also like traditional braces, but instead of aligning the teeth from the outside of the smile, they align the teeth from the inside. This means the brackets are glued to the back surfaces of the teeth and connected with a wire. This makes it so no one has to know you have braces.
Additional options include fast braces, self-ligating braces, and Invisalign®.
