There are many types of braces available that can fulfill all the dental needs of an individual. Each of these dental braces has its advantages and disadvantages and also varies in terms of price. Modern types of braces have many shapes and sizes, and can also overturn a person's smile and physical appearance.
There are five types of braces available that have been identified below:
● Traditional metal braces:
These kinds of braces have brackets and wires that are made of metal. Traditional metal braces are popularly used by millions of people around the world. Starting with a heavy structure to being extremely light-weight, these braces can be availed in different shapes and sizes. The new heated arch wires are the latest additions in this sector. The new heated archwires braces provide better flexibility when you eat or talk.
● Ceramic braces:
Although bound with the same metal wires, ceramic braces consist of ceramic parts. These are tied up with elastics and rubbers to make it function more effectively. A new approach to these braces, ceramic ones have no color at all and at times aren't even visible from a certain distance. These use a lesser amount of friction than the metal ones. The cons are that although they can't be seen easily, it doesn't mean they are invisible. To some extent, they are always visible.
An anytime removable form of the aligner, these kinds of braces are available in plastic material and are nearly impossible to notice when a person has these on. These are custom-made and are replaceable in every two weeks. There is no limit to eating and drinking anything. A slightly costly form of treatment, the cons are that these can't be used in case of complex treatments and will only be effective once worn for a long period. The pros are that it isn't visible at all and can be removed when you wish to brush.
● Lingual braces:
Lingual braces are attached to the inner and non-visible side, i.e. the tongue’s side. These braces consist of metal brackets and wires. The major advantage of using these braces is that these aren’t visible from any angle. Lingual ones are slightly uncomfortable and cause the problem of ulcers on the tongue. The cons of these braces are that these braces are much costlier than the regular ones and are also not good for severe cases. These are also difficult to clean.
Retainers cannot be called braces as these are usually used post braces treatment to maintain the structure of the teeth alignment until completely fixated. Available in different types, these are custom-made based on everyone’s post-treatment measurements and requirements. Mostly a part of the treatment, retainers don’t come at an extra cost at times. The cons with them are that these aren’t the treatment but only an extra cure and can’t be used in severe cases. The pros are these are easily removable and mostly are asked to wear at night.
The above mentioned are the types of braces available for you and can do wonders to your mouth structure and smile. Your dentist decides what is best for you and what suits your requirements, but to be honest there are many choices available for you apart from the basic ones.
