Royal Pines NC Orthodontist Answers: What Types of Braces Are Best for Me? | TS Orthodontics

Royal Pines NC orthodontist how to choose braces or invisalignThere are several different kinds of braces available today. The old, traditional metal braces still work great, and now there are lingual braces, and even removable clear aligners available also! Each has its pros and cons, and your Royal Pines NC orthodontist can help you decide which will work best for you and your smile.

Metal Braces

Metal brackets and wires have worked well for generations, and now you can even get gold braces, which work the same way but which offer a more muted, softer, and warmer appearance. The gold can blend better with the natural color of teeth to create a more elegant and sophisticated appearance. Rubber bands can now be customized by color when they are changed at regular maintenance visits, and you can even opt for designer brackets in the shapes of hearts, flowers, stars, footballs, diamonds or a “Mickey” like you might see at Disney World. Whatever route you might go here, metal braces are generally the most affordable and most effective option, despite their reputation.

Your Royal Pines NC Orthodontist Can Help You Choose The Braces Style That Best Fits Your Needs

Lingual Braces

These use the same metal brackets and wires used in traditional braces, but they are installed on the inside of your teeth to keep them hidden from view when you show off your smile. These braces are generally harder to clean and maintain than their front-facing cousins, and they are also generally more expensive. If you smile with these, though, your braces are truly invisible to the outside world!

Aligner Trays

A system like Invisalign consists of a series of customized plastic tray aligners that are removable and typically replaced every two weeks to keep your teeth moving in the desired direction. These are only available for teenagers and adults and might be less effective for more severe cases of tooth misalignment. They can also be a more costly method and require more maintenance, but since they’re removable, you wouldn’t have any restrictions on the kinds of food you wish to eat.
