What type of braces is right for me?

There are different kinds of braces from which to choose when you turn to our Richmond Hill, GA, dentist for orthodontic treatment. The type of braces that will work best for you will depend on several factors including the type and severity of issues you are looking to treat with braces.

Traditional metal braces consist of brackets and wires that are bonded to the front of your teeth, which apply just the right amount of pressure to move teeth around. This is often the best system for children and teens and it is ideal for correcting complex or complicated dental problems. Traditional braces can also be made from tooth-colored material like ceramic, which are less visible when bonded to teeth.

Lingual braces look just like traditional metal braces, the only difference is that these braces are bonded to the inside surface of your teeth to make them less visible. Because of their placement, lingual braces won’t be ideal for correcting certain issues such as underbites.

Invisible braces or aligners are also an ideal option for older teens and adults who are looking for a less discreet treatment option. Aligners are made from translucent plastic that fit over teeth to shift them into the perfect alignment.
