What are Braces
Braces straighten teeth and correct a variety of issues including crooked teeth, crowded teeth, gapped teeth, and malocclusion.
While braces are most commonly associated with children and teenagers, they are becoming increasingly common among adults as well.
Braces apply a mild, constant pressure to one’s teeth, which gradually moves them into their proper position over time. This pressure is applied by the brackets and wires of the braces, which work together to guide your teeth towards their desired locations.
Orthodontic Experts, a leading orthodontic treatment provider, offers different types of braces that can help correct several orthodontic issues. Contact us today to find the perfect treatment option to suit your needs.
Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional Metal Braces use a combination of brackets, wires, and bands to apply pressure on the teeth and move them into the desired position. We offer quality metal braces as a reliable and time-tested solution for a wide range of orthodontic issues. Orthodontic Experts understands the importance of choosing an orthodontic treatment that fits your needs and lifestyle. We are committed to delivering exceptional orthodontic services in a comfortable and welcoming environment.
Advantages of Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces are one of the most affordable orthodontic options available. They don’t require complex adjustments which makes them a cost-effective option.
With a wide range of colors and designs, metal braces are customizable to suit your personality and preferences.
Metal braces are made of high-quality materials that are durable and long-lasting.
Disadvantages of Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces are highly visible, which can be a concern for many patients, especially adults.
The brackets and wires used in metal braces can cause some discomfort and soreness, especially after adjusting the wires. However, this discomfort can be alleviated with pain medications and orthodontic wax.
Metal braces require extra maintenance, including regular brushing and flossing and avoiding certain foods.
Rose Gold Braces
Orthodontic Experts is proud to offer Rose Gold Braces as a wonderful alternative to traditional braces. If you’re looking for a sophisticated, elegant way to align your teeth, Rose Gold Braces might be the way to go. These braces are crafted with stainless-steel champagne-colored brackets that offer a warm and refined aesthetic. Plus, the champagne color allows for more translucency of the enamel, resulting in a beautiful and whiter smile.
Advantages of Rose Gold Braces
- Elegant and Sophisticated Look
The champagne-colored brackets of Rose Gold Braces offer a sophisticated and stylish look that complements your teeth, giving you an elegant look that will make you smile even more broadly.
- Durable and Effective
Rose Gold Braces are made of stainless steel, making them just as durable and effective as Traditional Metal Braces. They are strong enough to withstand the high pressure of orthodontic treatment, without compromising their stylish finish
Rose Gold Braces come with small and smooth brackets in comparison to the Traditional Metal Braces. These brackets provide more comfort, and fewer chances to irritate the cheeks, lips, or gums.
Disadvantages of Rose Gold Braces
Due to its sophisticated design, Rose Gold Braces may cost more than Traditional Metal Braces or Clear Aligners.
- Visible Ligatures
Just like Traditional Metal Braces, Rose Gold Braces require elastic ligatures to be placed around each bracket to hold the wire. These ligatures are visible, and may detract from the overall look desired by the wearer.
Rose Gold Braces require more intensive hygiene practices than traditional braces. Patients need to take the time to brush and floss carefully to prevent plaque accumulation.
Lingual Braces are designed to suit the complex orthodontic needs of patients who do not want the visible metal wires and brackets associated with traditional braces. Lingual Braces are a popular option among our patients who value discretion as well as precision in achieving a healthy and beautiful smile.
Advantages of Lingual Braces
They’re attached behind the teeth and remain out of sight. This makes them an excellent choice for adults or anyone who’s self-conscious about the appearance of traditional braces.
Lingual Braces are just as effective as traditional braces. They use the same types of wires and brackets to straighten your teeth, but they’re placed on the inside of your teeth instead of the outside.
- Less chances of damage
Since Lingual Braces are attached to the inside of your teeth, they’re less likely to be damaged during physical activity or impact. This makes them an excellent choice for athletes, musicians or anyone who’s concerned about braces getting in the way of their activities.
Disadvantages of Lingual Braces
- Precise installation
While Lingual Braces offer many advantages, they’re not perfect. They require careful and precise installation and ongoing maintenance to ensure that they work effectively.
Lingual Braces may cause more discomfort than traditional braces. Because they’re attached to the inside of your teeth, the brackets and wires may rub against your tongue, leading to soreness.
Lingual Braces may be more costly than traditional braces due to the extra time and resources involved in installation and maintenance.
What Age is best for Braces
Orthodontic Experts is a leading provider of orthodontic treatments for patients of all ages. When it comes to braces, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of what age is best for treatment. While braces can be effective at any age, it’s typically recommended that children have an evaluation to see if early orthodontic treatment is necessary. This usually occurs around the age of seven. However, many adults also choose to undergo orthodontic treatment, and Orthodontic Experts offers a variety of options, including clear and invisible braces, to meet the needs of all patients. Ultimately, the decision of when to get braces should be based on an individual evaluation and discussion with our experienced orthodontist.
Which Type of Braces Should You Choose?
When it comes to choosing the type of braces that are best for your orthodontic needs, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. Fortunately, Orthodontic Experts offers a variety of braces options to fit each patient’s unique needs. Metal braces are the most common and durable option, while Rose Gold Braces offer a more discreet look. For patients who desire quicker treatment time, Orthodontic Experts also offers Clear Aligners. It is essential to consult with our skilled orthodontists to determine which braces option is right for you. Regardless of the type of braces you choose, Orthodontic Experts is committed to providing exceptional care and incredible treatment outcomes. Ultimately, the choice will depend on your individual treatment plan and personal preference.
Cost of Different Braces
Orthodontic Experts offers different types of braces, each with its own unique cost. The cost of these braces varies depending on the type, treatment plan, and duration.
