What are the different types of dental braces?

Many people have problems with crowded or crooked teeth, or teeth that have grown in odd positions. Most of these cases may cause embarrassment, while there are also those that may trigger pain, mild discomfort, or worse complications. Misaligned teeth may sometimes get worse over time and affect a person’s bite, speech, or even jaw alignment.

Whatever effects misaligned teeth may have on you, we may be able to help correct them. Visit us and let us discuss your options for getting dental braces. Millions of people have benefited from the application of braces, correcting misalignments and their complications, and also improving the self-confidence of most patients.

Dental braces used to apply only to children and teenagers. While most cases seem to benefit with early treatment, it is now more common for adults and older people to receive the same procedure. Braces are now for virtually anyone who needs to have better teeth alignment for functional or aesthetic purposes.

We offer several types of braces for different teeth alignment requirements:

Conventional Metal Braces

Conventional metal braces may work for many cases of misaligned teeth. We recommend starting your kids early with this treatment; as early as eight years old. Let them grow with a healthy row of teeth that may help their self-confidence. Early treatment may also help them lose any fear of dentists, especially with our comfortable and friendly services.

Six Month Braces

Six Month Braces are a great alternative if you do not want to wear corrective braces for two years. These may apply to young teenagers or adults. Most teenagers today normally give a lot of importance to their appearance, and wearing braces for a long time may not be an exciting option for them.

You may have an important event coming up, such as a wedding, a speaking engagement, a special pictorial, a reunion, or any special activity in which you must look your best. Six Month Braces may help you get ready in time. Most patients finish treatment within exactly six months, while others get optimum results in less time.

InvisalignInvisalign | Moore Family Dentistry

Invisalign clear braces may be the answer if you require significantly more comfortable braces you can remove when you eat, brush, or floss. Most people may not even notice you are aligning your teeth because these are clear aligners. We may provide you a specific schedule for replacing your set of aligners (typically every two weeks) and also for the conclusion of your treatment, saving you time and money for checkups and allowing you to prepare the amount based on your schedule.

We also offer Tip-Edge Brackets and the Inman Aligner. Call or visit us today for a Complimentary Consultation, to find out what treatment may benefit you the most and which payment schedule may work for you.
