TYPES OF INVISIBLE BRACES BY RICHARD L. SCHECHTMAN
Purchase NY’s Favorite Family Orthodontist
Yes, you read that correctly – invisible braces! Even more invisible than the ceramic and sapphire braces, which is intriguing to many people.
If you have concerns about your appearance or absolutely can’t alter the way you look because your appearance plays a role in your job (for example models, actors/actresses, TV news reporters, public speakers, etc.), these invisible braces might just be perfect for you.
A lesser-known and less common type of braces, lingual braces are attached to the backs of your teeth instead of the front. They look similar to conventional or traditional braces and the way the braces work are very similar; they’re simply attached to the inside (the tongue side) of your teeth instead of the outside.
Though there are a number of challenges to overcome with this method, your Purchase, NY orthodontist can tell you more about lingual braces and whether they’re right for you. Lingual braces, like other invisible braces, are not recommended for those who need extensive treatment.
Because there were a lot of commercials on TV, Invisalign® is a well-known method for straightening teeth gradually without getting braces. This method isn’t recommended for more complicated cases, but it can be an excellent option for most patients.
Is the Power of Invisibility Worth It?
That really depends on the person, their discipline, the amount of work they need done, and whether their budget allows for the treatment. Many people gave the process a positive review, but some had issues with various aspects of it.
If you’re the type of person who drinks mostly water, brushes regularly, and can incorporate new oral health habits such as brushing and flossing on the go easily, then Invisalign® is a great option for you. If you have a tendency to neglect your oral health responsibilities, it may not be so good.
If you don’t want all the hassle of cleaning trays and taking them out but want to avoid the look of wearing braces, lingual braces might be for you. Though harder to clean, these will help you keep your confidence up and your teeth looking great, as long as you brush and floss regularly.
