Today, traditional metal braces are still a solid orthodontic option for children, teenagers, and adults alike, creating transformative results that can stand the test of time. The silver brackets are bonded to the front of the patient’s teeth, and attached wires cause the teeth to move towards their desired positioning at a gradual pace. Patients will need to have their wires changed and their braces tightened on a routine basis to achieve their ideal improvements.
Traditional braces are typically more affordable and durable than their modern counterparts, and they can be effective even in cases requiring significant tooth movement. Younger patients also tend to enjoy the use of colorful rubber bands, which can be used to express their personality and add a splash of fun to their smile! More neutral colors like white and gray are also available for older, image-conscious patients.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
While traditional braces can do a lot of good for a patient’s smile, their aesthetic disadvantages can be difficult for some patients to swallow. The time commitment involved – usually multiple years – is nothing to sneeze at either. In these cases, Dr. Kiefer and the rest of our team may recommend Invisalign Clear Braces as a faster and subtler orthodontic option.
These two advanced methods work in a very similar manner, both relying on a series of clear, customized aligners instead of the traditional wires and brackets. Patients simply wear the aligners, which blend in well with their natural smile, as directed. The removable nature of the aligners allows for easy removal and no inconvenient changes to diet or oral hygiene; better yet, a majority of cases are completed in less than 16 months.
