If the above sounds good, and you definitely want all of that, what’s holding you back? If it’s because you find it embarrassing to roam around with metal braces for two or three years, then worry not! We’ll guide you through just the right thing for you. The orthodontics industry has come a long way, making it so easy for people to get braces at any time and age. There’s a variety of ortho options available besides the traditional metallic braces. Following are the different braces options available to you.
Traditional Metallic Braces
Traditional braces are typically the least expensive option while being very effective, and are one of the most common types of braces in use today. They involve the use of brackets and wires and are made out of metal. When attached to the teeth, these allow their positioning to be altered. However, since they are the most noticeable type, most people avoid ortho treatment because they feel self-conscious about their appearance.
Ceramic braces are similar to the traditional metal braces in size and shape. The only difference is that they are entirely constructed of ceramic material. This has an added advantage of the ceramic blending into the natural colour of the teeth making the braces far less noticeable.
However, they are comparatively more expensive than your traditional metallic braces and are also prone to getting stained easily if not taken care of properly.
Lingual braces are again similar to the traditional metallic braces. However, they are placed behind your teeth, rather than in front and hence cannot be seen.
With the advantage comes a disadvantage. The obvious added advantage being the fact that this kind of braces are not directly visible and are hidden behind the teeth. However, they are also less effective and often take longer to achieve your desired tooth alignment. They tend to be way more uncomfortable as it comes in direct contact with the tongue. They are far more difficult to clean.
Invisalign are a distinct type of braces because they do not involve any sort of brackets and wires. They are a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners, to be worn over the teeth. These aligners can be easily removed and replaced with the next one in the series every two weeks throughout the required treatment period. It completely depends on the type of individual, and the time it will take to achieve the desired results.
Self-ligating braces are almost similar to traditional metal braces. What differs is that they utilize clips rather than elastic bands to hold the wire of the brace in place. Hence, friction applied on the braces is much less and it is usually easier for the individual to keep the braces and teeth clean.
