Picking The Right Braces To Straighten Your Teeth

dental braces

Are you looking for a way to straighten your smile? Getting braces can be a life-changing experience. If you have always wanted that perfectly straight smile, now could be the perfect time to get started but before you begin, remember,  there is no one size fits all option.

It is incredibly important to know which braces will suit your lifestyle and give you the results you want. We have brought together some popular options so you can find out – which are the best braces to straighten your teeth?

What should you consider?

When you are choosing braces, your main consideration should be the qualifications of the dentist or orthodontist. Depending on how much tooth movement is required to get you to your desired smile, a specialist with experience in working with your particular dental concern is very important. After this, take a look at what brace system will be most effective when it comes to your lifestyle and the results you are looking for. One factor you might want to consider is how the braces will look on your teeth and how they might affect your day-to-day life; after all, they might be there for a while! 

Invisalign

A modern choice popular with many adults, Invisalign is a discrete way to straighten teeth comfortably. A series of clear aligners that gently guide your teeth into the desired position, Invisalign is especially popular because, as a removable brace, you can take it out when you eat and drink.  You’ll have to be extra careful with brushing your teeth before you put your aligners back in and will have to wear them for 22 hours a day.  With predictable results and a treatment plan you are in control of, Invisalign is great for those on the go.

Fixed braces

As the traditional option, fixed braces can work for those who do not want to have to remember to take out and put their braces back in, those who are after a more “perfect” result or those who require complex tooth movement. Since the braces are fixed in place, they are constantly exerting a gentle force on your teeth to straighten them. They are generally suitable for people of all ages   and can fix challenging issues such as cross-bites that Invisalign might take longer with. Fixed braces require regular visits to your orthodontist to change wires and ensure your teeth are tracking in the correct way and will require you to invest in a few special brushes to make sure your oral health stays optimal throughout your orthodontic journey.
