Finding The Right Braces For You

There are very few people out there who have been blessed with perfect teeth when they were born, but now orthodontic treatments are able to make a huge change for you. I’m sure if you take a trip to see your orthodontist he will talk about any or all of the braces/appliances below, they have been designed to help correct any problem you may have.

Traditional Braces

Gone are the days of the heavy metal braces that everyone used to have. Now traditional braces are much lighter and have less structure too. The braces are made from quality stainless steel and also have metal brackets put on to the teeth with a dental cement. Each bracket is then connected to one another using a thin wire, this controls the amount of pressure put on the teeth in order to slowly reposition them in to the correct position.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces work in exactly the same way as the traditional kind of brace, the difference being that the brackets are clear because they’re made from transparent material. They have become increasingly popular because the braces are not as visible as others.


People love this option because it is not noticeable in the mouth and there’s no metal involved whatsoever. Each patient has a set of different clear plastic trays made which will help to realign their teeth. You can take them out when you eat and need to clean them, plus you get a new aligner every fortnight – each new try will bring you one step closer to achieving the perfect smile.

Palatal Expanders

This is a good option for people who have overcrowded teeth, the only other option is to have teeth extracted. In days gone by pulling out the teeth was the option preferred by dentists, but more modern orthodontists recommend using a palatial expander. It will fit in your palate and gently move the teeth further apart.
