Just like with your phone, computer, car, or television, technology is always changing and improving over time, so shouldn’t your options for straightening your teeth follow suit? Although braces are still the most common way to straighten teeth, modern advances with the various types of braces have changed them a lot in recent years.
Modern Metal Braces
The modern metal braces are still the most common way we straighten teeth in orthodontics. Today’s braces are made of high-grade stainless steel with sleek design and engineering to provide comfort while giving you that picture-perfect smile. As with all type of braces, you have the option to customize your colors any way you want by adding colors (elastics/rubberbands) to show off your personality.
To up the game, self-ligating braces are like when MP3s merged with cell phones to create the modern smart phone. Instead of the wire being tied into the braces with colors, these braces are engineered with a steel door that opens and closes to allow more free movement of the wire.
This allows Dr. Sutton to resolve severe crowding, expand constricted smiles, and fix crooked teeth faster than what was previously thought possible. With self-ligating braces such as Damon and Henry Schein SLX, you can be confident your smile is being treated with the some of the most advanced technology out there.
Clear (Ceramic) Braces
Having braces doesn’t necessarily require highly visible metal brackets and wires. In fact, many of today’s braces are made of clear materials such as ceramic to provide patients with an attractive, less noticeable alternative to traditional braces.
These options are very popular with adults and older teenagers because they are much less visible than traditional metal braces. Clear and ceramic braces offer an aesthetic alternative for patients seeking options other than traditional metal braces.
InBrace (Hidden braces)
Want the ability to straighten your teeth with braces but have them be invisible at the same time? This is where invisible or behind-the-teeth braces come into play. Using the most modern advances in 3D imaging and treatment planning, Dr. Sutton is able to fully customize your treatment with invisible braces such as InBrace.
These braces are placed on the inside surface of your teeth and custom fabricated wires are used to straighten your teeth. These are great for adults that want an invisible option along with the excellent results that are achieved with braces and wires.
Invisalign (Clear Aligners)
Want the clearest option available? Clear aligners such as Invisalign use modern advancements in 3D imaging and design to straighten your teeth with a series of clear and removable trays. Not only are these trays invisible but you can remove them to eat and clean your teeth, so cleanup is easy and you can straighten your teeth without anyone even knowing.
