You take good care of your teeth, but that won’t solve orthodontic issues that have made you hide your smile for years. You want a beautiful set of properly aligned teeth, but you thought braces were only for kids. Nothing could be farther from the truth. You can join the many other patients who have chosen adult braces to help them perfect their smile. Before you move forward, know your options in order to find the best type of adult braces that will work for you. Don’t wait any longer to get orthodontic treatment. Not only will you have an amazing smile, but you’ll also find that it is easier to keep your teeth clean. Braces will help you stave off serious issues like TMJ disorders and sleep apnea. Consider your choices for adult braces as you get ready to have the smile you have always wanted.
Think About Traditional Braces
Traditional braces with metal brackets and wires are still one of the most popular forms of orthodontic correction, and for good reason. They can effectively address many types of issues with your teeth. Whether you have a problem with spacing, your bite or the alignment of your teeth, Dr. Runnels can tailor a treatment plan for you utilizing traditional braces. Thanks to improvements in the field of orthodontics, your traditional braces can be even more effective when you have self-ligating brackets and heat-activated wires. If you want your adult braces to be discreet, they can even be mounted behind your teeth.
Consider Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces involve brackets that are ceramic. They will be clear or they will match the color of your teeth. Your wires can blend with your teeth as well. This offers you another option for braces that are less obvious. Rest assured that you will still have an amazing smile while others will hardly take notice of your adult braces.
Don’t Forget Invisalign®
Invisalign® is another popular trend in the world of orthodontics that appeals to adults and kids alike. It involves wearing clear aligners that are customized to fit your teeth. They are switched every two weeks as your teeth gradually shift into the proper position. You can remove the aligners while you are brushing and flossing. You can also take them out if you have a sporting event or a special occasion. You will need to wear your aligners at least 22 hours every day in order to have the best results. Invisalign® is generally used for milder cases of orthodontic correction. Only our orthodontist can tell you what will work best for you.
