When you’re deciding which orthodontic treatment to pursue for straight and a healthy smile, it should be a great relief to know that there are many options. Each treatment option has it’s own pros and cons. Take a look at this breif breakdown to decide which treatment best suits you and your lifestyle.
Traditional Braces – are the most noticeable braces. They’re made of metal brackets and wires. They are extremely affordable and obviously very effective as they’ve been around for so long.
Clear Braces – use the same technology as traditional braces, however the brackets are made of clear ceramic. They’re just as durable and equally as effective as traditional braces, yet they blend in with teeth much better.
Invisalign – is the most modern approach to straightening teeth. They’re plastic trays that are customized to your teeth. They gradually move your teeth where they need to be. Every two weeks you switch them out and your treatment continues right along. You can remove these to eat and they’re virtually invisible.
Lingual Braces – are the least visible option available because they’re placed behind your teeth. They are just as effective as traditional braces but nobody will ever know you’re going through treatment.
