The Different Types Of Braces

The Different Types Of Braces: Which Ones Will Be Right For Me?

The dentists have been part of a revolution that has benefited the lives of people. We are proud to be part of this advance in dental treatments that we know today, because it is now easier for patients to maintain a beautiful, healthy and perfect denture. There is a wide range of choice of braces to correct the denture, this because each patient values ​​different aspects to a greater or lesser extent. According to each of them it will be advisable to use a different type of braces. Our goal is to offer each of our patients the most interesting and appropriate type of brace for the orthodontics that it requires. Although the use of braces has positive aesthetic effects, that is not their main contribution, since the most important thing is that with this dental treatment worse issues are avoided, among which are the following:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth loss
  • Poor chewing and speech.
  • Jaw problems, among others.

Now that we are thinking about the idea of ​​wearing braces to correct our smile, we are completely determined to schedule appointment with dentists to begin orthodontic treatment. It is necessary to distinguish between the different types that exist because although the apparatus used is apparently similar, in reality, when we compare one treatment, we find many singularities. The differences lie mainly in the material they use, as well as the technique used for their preparation. Basically, all of them fulfill the same function, but some may be more comfortable or aesthetic than others.

Metallic Braces

They are the most resistant and are those that offer greater durability in clear advantage over the rest of the braces. They resist much better than the ceramics the force exerted during chewing. They fall less and transmit the forces better to the teeth, so dental treatment will go faster. The drawback is that they are less aesthetic.

Sapphire and Ceramic Braces

These are the most aesthetic braces, although these dental devices can extend about four to five months of treatment. They hide more, to the extent that it does not seem that we have braces on our teeth. They are not stained with food and their transparency favors the aesthetics of the smile. In the same way, ceramic braces are not stained with food and are visibly very appropriate. The Dentists comment that both the metal and sapphire braces and the transparent ones have a similar durability, only slightly higher in the case of the former.

Lingual braces

This type of braces can also be applied in a dental clinic and the option is to put the braces on the inner side of the teeth, which is known as lingual orthodontics, lingual braces or internal braces. They are the only 100% invisible braces. For this reason, they are never in sight – only the patient will know that he has them on. In this case they are designed in a laboratory, carrying out a special study on the case, since it is a type of orthodontics that employs high technology and has a maximum degree of efficiency because it is fully customized. Its size is smaller than any other and all these characteristics make the treatment very effective. In most cases they are the most expensive.
