Some people were born with perfectly straight teeth. For the rest of us, braces can help us achieve that straight smile that we have always wanted. When it comes to braces, there are several options to chose from. Let’s take a look at the different types of braces that you can get from a Jupiter orthodontist.
Since the early days, traditional braces have come a long way. Chances are you have seen old pictures of people wearing braces that were giant and involved headgear. You might have even had to wear that! Well, the good news is those days are done. Sure, traditional braces still comprise of metal brackets and wires, but modern braces are now lighter in weight and structure than they used to be.
These are designed, and work, the same way that traditional braces do. The main difference is that these braces are made out of ceramic instead of metal. As a result, ceramic braces are more discreet than traditional ones. This makes it very popular among adults who are looking to get braces to straighten their teeth.
Aligners are typically completely clear and removable. A common example of aligners is Invisalign. Aligners look like custom-made mouth guards and are virtually invisible to the naked eye. They are removable, meaning you can eat, drink, brush, and floss normally.
