When it comes to orthodontic treatment, many people mistakenly believe that metal braces are still the only treatment option available. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Thanks to advancements that have been made in modern technology, there are now various treatments to choose from, and they all have their distinct benefits. Even if you do opt for metal braces, the modern devices are more advanced than ever before. If you’ve been considering orthodontic treatment, you owe it to yourself to learn more about your options and which treatment may be best for you.
A Closer Look at Metal Braces
Metal braces are still a popular choice, but they are smaller and more innovative than they were in the past. In fact, metal braces can be broken down into a number of treatment options, including:
- The Damon® System
- Ormco® self-ligation appliances
- 3M Unitek®
Additional Treatment Options
If you’re looking for a more discreet option, you should be happy to know there are various solutions available. One popular choice is clear braces, which can come in different forms, including:
- In-Ovation® C
- Damon Clear®
Clear braces allow patients to undergo orthodontic treatment without it being so obvious to their friends and acquaintances. They are designed to blend in with the color of the teeth, making them less noticeable overall.
Clear aligners like Invisalign® are another popular choice, especially among teens and adults. Many people want to straighten their teeth and correct their bite, but they don’t want to deal with the hassles of braces. Invisalign® consists of medical-grade plastic aligners that can be removed as needed. As such, patients can brush and floss their teeth like normal and still consume all of their favorite foods.
Yet another treatment option that is gaining popularity is AcceleDent Aura, which uses SoftPulse Technology™ to make the orthodontic treatment work even faster. You can discuss this option with our orthodontist during your initial consultation.
