Most of our patients are unaware that there’s such choice between types of braces. They assume there’s only one option, and you have no say in the matter. Well, at Braces San Juan Capistrano, we offer you four different varieties to have a look at and decide which one is best for you. Each one is slightly different to the other, and you might benefit from wearing one particular kind.
These are the traditional braces everyone assumes they have to wear. We’ve fitted patients with metal braces in the 92675 area for quite some time, so we know the pros and cons of them. One of the main advantages is that they’re made of an incredibly sturdy material, meaning there’s almost no chance of them breaking. Plus, you can choose whatever color metal braces you like, which can be fun for children.
The downside is that metal braces can hurt a bit, but any pain can be relieved with some adjustments. Furthermore, they’re the most visible, meaning they’re not a great option for image-conscious adults.
Clear braces are very similar to metal ones but with one obvious cosmetic difference; they’re clear. This means they blend into your teeth and are harder to spot, particularly from a distance. They work the same as metal braces but can be less sturdy, meaning the risk of breaking them is higher. To add to this, the cosmetic benefits come at a higher price than metal ones too.
However, if you want braces that aren’t easily visible, then these may be a great option for you.
Our practice also offers Invisalign® Invisible Braces as an option. These differ dramatically from all the other choices as they’re removable. You’re given ‘aligners’ which resemble a typical retainer. While they may look completely different, they function in the same way and provide great results. Plus, they’re completely invisible and less painful than all other braces.
The only downside is the cost. Invisalign® is the most expensive option as it’s an incredible technology that gives your invisible braces.
Finally, we have lingual braces San Juan Capistrano, which are very similar to metal braces. The difference here is that they’re fixed behind your teeth, instead of in front of them. This means they’re harder to see, which is a great benefit to many people.
Again, this comes at a cost as the materials involved with lingual braces are expensive. Furthermore, the act of fitting them requires more time, which also means more money.
Any of these options will help straighten your teeth and fix your smile. If you’re looking for great orthodontic treatment, then call us today on 949-446-1589.
