Contrary to popular belief, braces aren't just for teenagers anymore. Children, teens and adults alike are all visiting their Bay City, MI dentist Gregory A. Rosecrans, DDS, PC for braces, and they often have more options than you might think.
If you are considering visiting your favorite dentist, Dr. Rosecrans, for orthodontic treatment but you aren't sure if traditional metal braces are right for you, the good news is that you likely have several options available. Here are four of the most popular ones.
Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces may not be the most attractive orthodontics treatment available, but they are often unbeatable in terms of effectiveness. If your teeth are seriously crowded, crooked or gapped and you don't mind sporting the metal look, traditional metal braces may be right for you.
Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces but with one important difference: they are made out of a ceramic material that better matches your teeth, making them far less noticeable. Ceramic braces function the same way as metal braces, but they are generally less conspicuous, especially if you choose clear wires.
Of course, if you want straightening that is seriously inconspicuous, lingual braces may provide just the solution for you. Lingual braces are similar to traditional metal braces except that they attach to the back of your teeth instead of the front. No one has to know you have braces except you.
Another tooth straightening option that is quickly growing in popularity, Invisalign promises convenient and nearly invisible teeth straightening. Unlike the three options above, Invisalign is completely clear, making it nearly invisible. It is also removable, making keeping it clean easier than ever.
