Ortho- Braces Metal And Silver

Straight teeth and a perfect smile can do wonders for your confidence. Some people have naturally straight teeth but you don’t need to be concerned if you don’t. It is possible to achieve that perfect smile through orthodontal treatments.

If you want to correct your bite and straighten your teeth, don’t hesitate to contact us at Peters Family Dentistry. Our experienced dentist has handled several orthodontist treatments. He will examine your teeth carefully and determine which treatment will be ideal for you.

There are two options for this treatment; Invisalign or traditional braces. You can choose Invisalign if you don’t want to wear regular braces. This treatment option is suitable for patients who don’t have a severe overbite.

Traditional braces are suitable for people who don’t mind metal braces or have a severe overbite. Our dentist will let you know if this treatment is right for you. He will explain the process, provide maintenance instructions, and keep an eye on the progress.

Metal and Silver Braces for Teenagers and Adults

Braces are often associated with children, especially teenagers. Many believe that’s the best time to fix their teeth. It is rare to find an adult with these dental devices. However, braces are suitable for adults as well as children.

Anyone can be a good candidate for this treatment as long as their teeth can handle it. Our dentist will provide the best solution based on the state of your oral health and treatment requirements.

How Do These Braces Work?

Braces apply constant pressure on the teeth over an extended period of time to guide them back into a good alignment. During application, our dentist will apply metal braces to your teeth at predetermined locations. Every bracket has wings that will hold some elastic bands that hold the archwire in place.

All of these components work together to guide your teeth back to a good position. The system will provide consistent pressure, which will cause your teeth to gradually move without becoming damaged during the process.

Why Choose Braces?

Traditional metal braces have a number of advantages over other alternatives available in the market. Most people only consider the aesthetic disadvantages of these braces without looking at the other benefits they can provide. Here’s a look at some of them:

  • Durable – Traditional orthodontic treatments, especially metal braces, are very resilient. If you fall or are careless, the braces won’t be damaged. That’s why they’re a great option for children.
  • Colors – The elastics that are a part of this system are available in a wide variety of colors. This makes them very appealing to younger patients. Older patients can choose white, grey, or silver braces to suit their tastes if needed.
  • Affordable – Traditional metal braces are more affordable than other alternatives available in the market. That’s one of the reasons why parents and patients prefer it to other options.
  • Don’t Require As Much Discipline – Once the braces are installed, only a dentist can remove them safely. That means your teeth’s alignment process remains on track throughout the process. The same can’t be said for options like Invisalign, which are removable. It’s not uncommon for patients to remove their braces and forget about them. That’s why traditional braces are considered more effective.

When you are making your choice, it is important to keep in mind that traditional braces are visible and noticeable. At the end of the treatment, patients experience some soreness for the first few days before it settles down.

They should consume soft and easy-to-chew food items until that sensation subsides. This treatment can take up to two years based on the condition of the patient’s teeth. Small misalignments can be corrected quickly but big overbites take time.
