Orthodontic Braces Have Come a Long Ways

 In Dental

The days of clunky and embarrassing braces are over! Gone are the days of being made fun of for obvious and ugly contraptions strapped to our faces. The technology of orthodontics has advanced a great degree. We now have unobtrusive and incredibly effective braces of many varieties. Our orthodontist/dentist will help you choose which is best for you:

  • Metal Braces: Metal braces are the most commonly used brackets. Metal brackets are glued to each tooth, and wires connect each bracket. Rubber bands are also required.
  • Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, but not as visible. They offer more aesthetic and cosmetic appeal over traditional metal braces.
  • Lingual Braces: Lingual braces are similar to metal braces, but lingual braces are attached to the back of the teeth, not the visible front.
  • Invisalign® Clear Aligners: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible aligners that can be removed daily.
