What Are The Types Of Braces Available?

There are different types of braces for adults available on the market.

Metal Braces

These are the traditional type of braces. They works by using wires and elastics to put pressure on your teeth in order to guide them to the proper position. Some patients report that the wires and metal brackets may cause irritation to the cheeks and gums. You also have to be very careful what you eat and be diligent about keeping your teeth clean.

Ceramic Braces

This type of brace uses ceramic brackets and clear wires which are less noticeable than metal brackets. Wearers have to be extra careful in your food intake as the ceramic brackets and clear ties can be stained and may even break them.

Lingual Braces

This type requires a more difficult procedure than the metal and ceramic braces. These braces are placed behind your teeth so they are not visible. However, due to the position behind the teeth, it could interfere with the tongue and may change the pronunciation of some of your words.

Clear Braces

This type of brace is ideal for treating minor issues of crowding or overlapping of teeth. Unlike traditional braces which have brackets and wires, clear braces are transparent thin plastic devices which are worn over your teeth to move your teeth to their best position millimeter by millimeter.

What Are The Advantages Of Clear Braces?

Clear braces are practically invisible, so they are more convenient for those who might be bothered by having very noticeable brackets on their teeth. These are removable, but will only be permitted to remove them to eat and to brush. Clear braces also reduce the possibility of any gum problems and cavities which are common in metal braces.

What Are The Things That You Should Remember When Getting Clear Braces?

There are things that you must consider before getting clear braces. Aside from the cost, you need to be diligent about wearing them. You have to wear your clear braces for about 20-22 hours per day, taking them out only when you eat or brush. Not complying with the schedule will interrupt the treatment timeline.invisible braces in troy oh

What Are The Procedures Involved In Clear Braces?

Not all patients will be good candidates for clear braces as it will depend on several factors like your bite and the severity of the condition of your teeth. If, after your consultation, Dr. Castle determines that you are an ideal candidate, she will take impressions of your teeth so that the series of aligners can be fabricated by a lab. You will wear each aligner for a couple of weeks, then you will return to the office so Dr. Castle can monitor your progress and give you the next aligner in the series. Although generally clear braces are comfortable, you may still experience mild discomfort when you first start wearing them due to the pressure on the teeth.

How Much Do Clear Braces Cost?

It is true that among the mentioned treatments, clear braces cost you a bit more than the traditional metal braces. The cost range of clear braces will, however, depend on the condition of your teeth and how many devices you actually need to complete your treatment.
