What Are the Different Types of Braces and the Pros and Cons of Each One?
He asked about what options he has and the different pros and cons of each. I thought this is are very common question from patients, so I recorded this video.
The lingual braces are the ones that are bonded to the inside of the teeth. They were very popular quite a few years ago. Not so much now because that’s been superseded once clear aligners and Invisalign became an option. Now, you can have your teeth straightened and do it discreetly, we don’t need to rely on lingual braces so much anymore. The metal braces have been around for a long time, so we know they’re really tried and tested, and they’re a relatively small brace too. You also have options with them that you can brighten them up and put colors on them if you want to do that as well.
The clear or tooth-coloured braces do the same thing as the metal braces, but they’re obviously a lot more discreet because they match the color of your teeth.
They’re made in the US, and so that’s why it takes a few weeks for them to get to us.
Traditional braces, on the other hand, can pretty much me made right away because it’s done local.
So I hope you’ve found this short video useful, and clear some confusions around the different ways to straighten your teeth. And if you or your child are looking for an orthodontist to help you realign your smile, we would love to look after you.
