If you need Braces Seminole, Florida has many experienced orthodontists to assist you through each stage of the process. From deciding which braces fit your specific needs and budget.
While many people get braces because their teeth are noticeably crooked and they want a prettier, straighter smile there are many more reasons that you may need to correct your teeth. When an orthodontists recommends braces it is usually because you have either crowded, crooked teeth, an over or underbite, or possibly even incorrect jaw placement. Getting braces to correct any of these can help to avoid speaking, chewing or biting problems. Additionally braces can help to avoid gum disease, earaches, headaches, and tooth decay.
Types of Braces
The most economic and commonly used braces today are metal braces. They come colored in both silver and gold and the ligatures (or elastic bands) come in many different colors as well. Ligatures are the bands that keep the arch and brackets attached. Metal braces are perhaps the strongest and most affordable of all of the types of braces.
Ceramic braces are usually sought after for the way that they look. Ceramic braces are less noticeable because they are virtually see through or even slightly tooth colored. The braces do not stain, however the elastic wires or ties that hold them together can. This is especially true if you drink a lot of coffee or teas.
Lingual braces are like metal braces except that they are put on the inside of the teeth instead of the outside so they are much less noticeable. These are not used very often, are much more expensive and fewer orthodontists offer them.
Another type of braces that are sought after because of their cosmetic appeal are the Invisilgn braces. Invisalign braces are made from many different molds of your teeth and fit into your mouth like a retainer. Every few weeks you will receive a new set to wear until you have achieved the desired results. The benefits of Invisalign besides the obvious, being invisible, is that they are easy to clean, can be removed to eat or for special occasions, and are quite comfortable.
There are many orthodontists that offer braces, and many of them will meet with you for a free consultation to help you find the right option for you and your budget.
