You know that you need orthodontic treatment, but you’ve been stalling. You don’t want to deal with a mouth full of metal, and you’re already having images of bulky braces taking over your photos. But there’s no need to hold off on undergoing treatment when there are so many options available. Gone are the days when the only option was big and bulky braces. Here at Davis Orthodontics, we have various types of braces for patients to choose from. During a consultation at our office, you can learn about your options and which one may be best in your case.
Why Do You Need Orthodontic Treatment?
Orthodontic treatment can be used to address a wide variety of conditions and concerns. Whether you are dealing with crooked teeth or an overbite, you owe it to yourself to visit an orthodontist and learn about your treatment options.
A Closer Look at the Types of Braces
Although traditional metal braces are still a popular choice, there are other options available that offer more discretion and/or other benefits. Some of the options include:
- Mini-metal braces – 50% smaller than traditional metal braces, these devices offer more comfort. They are made of high-tech stainless steel and come in a number of colors for patients to choose from.
- Ceramic braces – Made from clear materials, this option is significantly less visible than metal braces. They are most often used on the upper front teeth.
- Invisalign® – This option is different in that it consists of clear aligners that can be removed from the mouth for eating and cleaning. This treatment offers the most discretion and convenience. However, it isn’t right for everyone.
The Benefits of Undergoing Orthodontic Treatment
Regardless of the types of braces that are used, the main goal is to bring the teeth into alignment. This provides a number of benefits for the patient, including:
- Better appearance overall
- Better oral health
- Enhanced self-confidence
The benefits of undergoing orthodontic treatment cannot be overstated, and with so many types of braces available these days, there is no reason to put off treatment any longer.
