A Look at Your Aesthetic Braces Options

March 26, 2013

When it comes to straightening your teeth, you have lots of options. Your orthodontist will help you narrow down your choices based on the issue you’re trying to fix. It’s important to note that orthodontic care no longer means obtrusive brackets and tender teeth. Here are some of the options that can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted:

Damon Bracket System
Though the Damon Bracket System looks the most like traditional metal braces, they are anything but old-fashioned. These braces achieve results faster and more comfortably than any other type of metal braces. They also use a special mechanism to hold the wires in place. This mechanism is far less prone to attracting bacteria than older metal braces, which translates into better oral health and a reduced risk of tooth discoloration. Patients often get their Damon Bracket System braces off 20 percent faster than traditional metal braces.

If you want a straighter smile, but can’t bring yourself to wear metal braces, then Invisalign could be right for you. Treatment with Invisalign involves a series of clear, plastic aligner trays that gently shift your teeth. The trays are removable and should be taken out when you eat, drink, brush, or floss. They are also virtually undetectable. Invisalign is a great choice for adult patients who worry about the impact traditional braces can have on their professional and personal lives.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces combine the benefits of Invisalign and traditional braces into one simple, effective orthodontic treatment. Ceramic braces have clear brackets, so they are far less noticeable than metal braces, but deliver the same powerful results. If you have bite problems that Invisalign can’t treat but still want an understated cosmetic option, ceramic braces could be a good solution.
