TYPES OF BRACES IN MATTHEWS NEAR WEDDINGTON AND STALLINGS, NC

At SP Orthodontics, we provide different types of braces for our patients. Braces are the most common orthodontic treatment for children and adults to straighten their teeth and realign their bites. However, unlike the braces you’d get in the past that were designed with shiny metals, you can now find a lot more variety with options that can be customized to your taste.

 

If after our assessment we determine that you’re a good candidate for braces, we will prescribe an oral appliance that meets your specific dental needs. Our braces are designed with bands and wires as well as fixed or removable corrective appliances. The type of braces you get depends on the condition of your teeth and your preferences.

METAL BRACES

It is not unusual to think that metal braces are unattractive and distracting. Thankfully, we can now offer modern and aesthetically pleasing metal braces that are smaller, less noticeable, and more comfortable. Our metal braces feature polished brackets and lighter wires. As a result, you won’t feel as much discomfort and irritation in your mouth. In addition, the elastics that fit around your brackets come in a wide range of colors. That means you can add colorful accents to your metal braces and give them a creative flare without spending any extra money.

CERAMIC BRACES

Our ceramic braces work similarly to metal braces. Their winning distinction is that they are thinner, more aesthetically pleasing, less noticeable, and more comfortable than most traditional braces. Ceramic braces are sometimes called clear braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces since they are made with polycrystalline ceramic – a material that resembles natural teeth – and have a more natural-looking appearance that blends in perfectly with your teeth.

INVISALIGN

Compared to conventional metal braces, Invisalign is a lot more comfortable and can produce great results when worn. When you choose Invisalign, you will get a set of comfortable, custom-made, and clear aligners that fit over your teeth and straighten your smile. The aligners are also removable, making it easier for you to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

HOW FAST DO BRACES WORK AFTER BEING FITTED?

Every patient’s course of orthodontic treatment is different. Depending on the degree of misalignment that needs to be corrected, most people usually wear braces for one to three years. Carefully adhering to your orthodontist’s instructions may reduce the length of time you need to wear them.

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR BRACES IN MATTHEWS NEAR STALLINGS AND WEDDINGTON, NC

You’ll need to avoid eating certain foods after getting your braces fitted since things such as food particles can become stuck between your braces and your gum line. With braces, your teeth are more likely to trap foods that can cause tooth decay. You’ll want to avoid foods like popcorn, hard candy, and chewing as much as possible. You’ll also need to pay attention to how frequently you consume starchy meals and sugary drinks, which can erode the enamel on your teeth. We will help you set up appointments to visit our orthodontic office in Matthews, near Weddington, and Stallings, NC for an adjustment every 8 to 10 weeks. During each appointment, our orthodontists will make sure that you’re taking good care of your braces and oral health, and they’ll change the O-rings on your braces when necessary. Schedule an appointment with us today, and let us help you straighten your smile!
