Today’s advanced dental technology offers a wide variety of dental braces. Braces are no longer an unsightly thing to be feared. Straight teeth will help correct your bite and drastically decrease the chance of future dental problems. There are several orthodontic treatment options.
Tusk Dental can provide you with a treatment plan based on the severity of your bite and the extent of your dental misalignment. We will also take into consideration your particular needs regarding treatment times.
Invisalign braces are extremely popular because they are virtually invisible and they enable you to maintain good oral health habits. Invisalign aligners are extremely comfortable because the alignment trays are made with a pliable material that can easily be removed. This means you can take them out when you eat and brush and floss your teeth to maintain good oral health. The smooth plastic won’t irritate the insides of your mouth. The number of aligners you require depends on how much straightening you need. They are generally replaced every two weeks to ensure that they fit your teeth properly through each straightening stage.
Ceramic braces are made with a tooth-coloured material. They are the same size and shape as metal braces, but they are not as visible. The brackets also come with a translucent wire that allows them to naturally blend in. They also move teeth much faster than regular clear plastic aligners.
Lingual braces are like traditional metal braces except that they are attached behind the teeth making them invisible when you smile. They are sometimes referred to as incognito braces because they are placed behind the teeth. These braces are an effective alternative to those who are concerned about the aesthetics of their smile.
Traditional Metal Braces
These braces consist of stainless-steel wire generally affixed with plastic bands to metal brackets that are glued to the front of the teeth. Metal braces are usually the least expensive option and you also have the choice of adding coloured elastic bands to make your braces unique. The modern version of metal braces involves brackets that are much smaller and less visible than the unattractive metal braces of the past. There are new heat-activated arch wires that enable your body heat to assist the teeth in moving more rapidly and much less painfully.
