In the past, if you needed orthodontic care, you only had one choice; conventional metal braces. Fortunately, today, there are more choices. The main decision you need to make is whether you would prefer to get conventional metal braces or clear braces. Our expert Williamsburg orthodontist will help you make the right decision for you when you come for your consultation.
Both clear and traditional braces are effective in treating malocclusions. The main difference between them is visibility. Conventional braces are made of high-grade stainless-steel brackets that are cemented on and are attached with a thin, arch wire. If you’re considering clear braces, there is more than one type to choose from. The different types include: clear ceramic braces, lingual braces and Invisalign braces. Just like conventional braces, clear ceramic braces also consist of metal brackets with wires except the brackets are made from a clear transparent material which makes them less visible to others. Lingual braces aren’t visible because they’re placed behind the teeth. Invisalign braces do not contain metal or brackets at all. They’re made of clear, removable plastic aligners that are virtually invisible. As you can see, they are many different types of braces to choose from. However, don’t let that overwhelm you.
