If you’re about to start your orthodontic journey with braces, you’re on your way toward the straight, healthy, and beautiful smile you desire. Yay! Our orthodontist, Dr. Shabbir Adenwalla and Inayat Ashai, also has more good news. When it comes to aligning your smile with braces, you have many options, which means you can select a treatment that is right for you. Our orthodontist is more than happy to tell you all about them.
One option is traditional braces, which is most likely the type of braces you most often see. This appliance is made of metal brackets, metal wires, and colorful bands. The metal brackets are glued to the front surfaces of your teeth and are attached by the wire. You can decorate the appliance however you would like by selecting different colors of bands.
Another option is ceramic braces. This appliance is just like traditional braces, except instead of having a grey, metal color, it is colored to match your teeth. This makes the appliance less noticeable, but it still works the same way as traditional braces by applying pressure to the teeth and shifting them.
A third option is lingual braces. Lingual braces are also like traditional braces in the way that they are metal. However, instead of being cemented to the front surfaces of the teeth, this appliance is cemented to the back surfaces of the teeth. With this appliance, you won’t have the option of choosing colorful bands.
In addition to these three options, you also have Invisalign®, fast braces, and self-litigating braces to choose from.
