Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used in orthodontics, as they are an effective, tried-and-true method to straighten teeth, regardless of the severity of the case. Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and utilize brackets, rubber bands, and arch wires to straighten your teeth throughout the course of your treatment. Metal braces have progressed a long way in the past decade, and are now smaller and more comfortable than ever before. They are also a great way to customize your smile by using different colored rubber bands. You can customize these at each visit according to your personal preference.
Getting braces typically requires a change in your everyday habits. With brackets and wires, you have to use special interdental toothbrushes to get between brackets and underneath wires when you brush and floss. You also have to adjust the types of foods you eat with traditional braces. However, with Invisalign, offered by The Center For Dental Excellence, your smile-changing experience will only require a couple of minor changes in your day-to-day routine! Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligner trays that are removable. This allows you to eat whatever you want, play any sports you want, and play whatever instruments you want, without being forced to adjust to the requirements associated with traditional braces. You only need to brush your trays when you brush your teeth (after every meal) and remember to swap to the new trays every two weeks. And they are virtually invisible, so one will even know you are straightening your teeth!
You never need to suffer from bad breath issues, because you can still brush and floss as you normally would. Additionally, Invisalign has no metal brackets or wires to pinch or poke the insides of your mouth and, since you won’t require regular adjustments, you will spend less time at our orthodontic office!
Another popular alternative to metal braces are clear braces. Clear braces are a discreet way to achieve a healthier smile. You’ll love the natural look of these smooth, sculpted, and completely clear braces, which will not stain or discolor and can be blended in with your unique tooth shade. Clear braces offer our patients the look they want, with the functionality of traditional metal braces.
