When it comes to choosing how to align your smile, we understand how overwhelming the options can be. It’s hard to know the difference between the style and types of braces if you are not accustomed to them. Luckily, our orthodontic team is happy to share some information with you to help you determine which orthodontic treatment is right for you.
Our orthodontist, Dr. Perry M. Iacovetti, offers a variety of orthodontic treatments that you can choose from, depending on your unique smile and specific needs. To help you know the difference between these treatment options, he and our team have provided some basic information on some of the most common treatment options:
– Ceramic braces: These braces are a form of orthodontic treatment that is designed to straighten teeth with the use of ceramic rather than metal materials. Ceramic braces can be colored to blend in with your natural teeth, or they can be colored for stylistic opportunities.
– Traditional braces: Braces are the most common treatment that we think of when we think of orthodontics. They often consist of metal wires and brackets that work with your jaw and teeth to move your teeth into their proper positions.
– Clear aligners: Clear aligners, such as the Invisalign® orthodontic aligner system, are designed to a discreet orthodontic treatment. Furthermore, there are no metals are involved, and your aligners can be easily taken out for cleaning and eating.
