What Are Braces?

Braces have been used for centuries to straighten teeth and correct bite issues. Brackets are bonded to the front of the teeth and wire runs through the brackets for the full length of the arch. Braces can also come in other designs, such as tooth-colored brackets or clear brackets. Those who invest in braces can enjoy several dental benefits including improving their orthodontic health. 

Types of Braces?

As your Kyle orthodontist for patients of all ages, The Village Orthodontics is happy to offer a wide range of different orthodontic treatment options. Since no two orthodontic cases are the same, we strive to have options available for everyone that works best for them. The common types of braces we offer include:

Metal Braces

Metal braces are conventional braces most commonly used. They are made of high-grade stainless steel and are an effective treatment option. 

Clear or Ceramic Braces

These types of braces are simply a different version of conventional braces. They are more discreet as the metal is swapped out for a clear or tooth-colored ceramic that gives them more cosmetic appeal. 

Self-Ligating Braces

In this type of braces, the wire passes through a small metal clip built into the bracket. This makes them more comfortable (less pressure and friction) and easier to clean. This style of braces skips the elastic bands as the clip is what holds the wires in place. Depending on your orthodontic needs and specific case, ligating systems can work very well.

Lingual Braces

A lingual braces system is almost identical to conventional braces, except they’re placed on the backside of your teeth! Hidden braces are an attractive option for patients worried about the aesthetics of braces because being on the inside makes them invisible to everyone around you.  However, there are some restrictions when it comes to lingual braces. Your teeth have to be long enough to be able to hold the custom brackets.  It’s also harder to get accustomed to talking and swallowing than with traditional braces that are placed on the front of the teeth (not to mention keep them clean) Additionally, this method can’t treat some of the complex issues that traditional braces are made for. Since these braces utilize custom made components, lingual braces tend to come with a higher price tag.

If you are looking to get braces in Kyle, you’ve come to the right place. Feel free to schedule your consultation or contact us if you have any further questions or concerns regarding braces. Our orthodontists will evaluate your case and suggest the most suitable options for you while making sure to address any concerns you may have.
