In the past, orthodontic braces were only placed under pressure from parents and doctors, and then only for children or teens. Adult braces were a ridiculous concept, but in just a few short years, all that will have changed.
By the time patients reach adulthood, they understand the necessity of having orthodontic treatment, and society has become more accepting of people with braces. There is no shame even in train track braces now. Adults always choose treatment on their own, with no outside pressure. There are aesthetic and very discrete options available too, not to mention completely invisible braces.
Aesthetic braces are fixed buccal orthodontic appliances, which means that they are located on the front of the teeth, towards the face, and cannot be removed without help from an orthodontist. Their structure is that of the regular brace: brackets adhered to the surface of teeth, with an arch wire running through them, held in place with ligatures. The difference is purely in appearance. The brackets are tooth coloured ceramic, or transparent sapphire crystals, and the wire comes in white, so it is very discrete, and looks nice.
Although they are easily removed, dental aligners should be worn for 22 hours a day at least, and should only be removed for brushing and for eating, if you want to have the desired effect within your given treatment time. Our clinic works with Clear Aligners, which are a completely transparent aligner system that we make according to the impression we take from you. You get a new aligner with each activation, until the treatment is complete. This is a great choice for patients to whom looks and comfort are indispensable.
Invisible braces aren’t just removable, or aligners, there are fixed appliances that are completely invisible. Lingual systems are called such because they are located on the lingual side of the teeth, facing the tongue- they are otherwise functionally the same as buccal fixed braces. We use the Incognito system at our dental practice, which represents the cutting edge of lingual braces today.
We hope to offer the best and most fair payment plans to our patients seeking invisible braces. Ask our friendly customer care staff about payment options.
