Braces are commonly used to align the teeth. Although there are several types of braces, they all work in a similar way. This brief guide will educate you on the different kinds of braces available today.
When one thinks of braces, almost automatically we go to the large metal pieces that fit over our teeth. Thankfully, modern dental technology has made these so they are slightly less visible. Our dentist will consult with you if these are the right course of action for you.
Ceramic braces are extremely similar to conventional braces in both shape and size. They differentiate from their alternatives by using tooth-colored or clear brackets. Tooth-colored wires can be used as well to provide a more discreet appearance. When choosing this method of alignment, our dentist will suggest taking extra precaution on cleaning your teeth.
A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health. No matter what age you are, it is never too early or too late to invest in braces. Damon braces are appliances that are fitted in the same way as traditional metal braces. But instead of having brackets that tighten and adjust the braces regularly, Damon braces use a slide mechanism that attaches wires to brackets to move naturally with the teeth as they realign. This makes them more comfortable, better looking and able to provide strong results in a shorter time. Damon braces are more effective at correcting severe crowding, are more comfortable and have a lower relapse rate,Read more about Damon Braces
