There are many orthodontic treatments available depending on your needs and budget. Orthodontics is a great way to improve your smile, confidence, and self-esteem. Chamblee Orthodontics wants to discuss the different types of braces as well as clear aligners. Remember, choosing the right orthodontic treatment is important to get the most out of your investment.
Metal braces are the traditional option and work well for most people. They consist of metal brackets that are attached to your teeth with wires running between them. Metal braces can be adjusted quickly, which means they can move teeth more quickly than other options.
Clear Aligners are a more discreet alternative to metal braces. Clear aligners work by placing a plastic tray over your teeth that gradually moves them into the correct position. They are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating or brushing, although it is recommended to remove them before strenuous activities such as sports.
It’s important to take you activity and lifestyle into account when deciding which orthodontic treatment is best for you. If you play sports, have a job that involves a lot of talking, or just don’t want to have braces for the next two years, clear aligners may be the right choice for you. Metal braces are still a great option for people who want quick results or those who are looking for a more affordable option.
