Options are a good thing in many situations.
It’s something our patients appreciate at all our Orthodontic Affiliates locations across Indiana. In addition to traditional metal braces and Invisalign, you also may choose clear ceramic braces at our practice.
Today, we’ll discuss some reasons you or someone you love may be interested in this treatment option. To find out more, call 888-722-5033 to schedule an orthodontic consultation with one of our doctors.
At the most basic level, ceramic braces are braces. That means they can fix all these problems:
Like metal braces, ceramic braces work through the combination of brackets, wires, and elastics. These parts apply pressure where needed to slowly adjust the position of your teeth so they are straighter. This makes smiles more visually attractive. Straight teeth also are easier to clean, which can reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum infections.
So, why might you choose clear braces over other options?
First, they are less noticeable than metal braces. This makes them less obvious to other people. This doesn’t mean they are completely invisible, but they are more discreet than braces with metal brackets.
If you want to be even more discreet, you may want to consider Invisalign. This system uses clear plastic aligners rather than brackets and wires. Because the aligners are custom-made for your teeth, many people will not realize you are wearing them at all. At the same time, Invisalign may not be as effective as braces on your particular situation. The best way to know is by talking to one of our doctors.
We understand that getting orthodontic care is a big decision for anyone. Whether you choose clear ceramic braces, traditional metal braces, or modern Invisalign aligners, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make the best decision for you.
When you come in for your consultation, we can examine the condition of your teeth and jaw. We can identify the specific issues that you want to change, and we can discuss which options could work on your situation.
This is an opportunity for you to ask questions as well. We want to make sure you have all the information that you need to choose the treatment that will fit with your lifestyle and your long-term smile goals.
