Are you hesitant to smile because of your crooked teeth? Or do you avoid social situations because of your smile? Traditionally, it seems, only teenagers wore braces, but successful alignment of teeth is possible for all ages. Dr. McSurdy has treated the orthodontic needs of over 20,000 patients.
Traditional braces have advanced since their early years of being seen primarily as bulky and unsightly. Advances in technology have given traditional braces a more streamlined and sleek appearance. Let’s talk about some of the advantages of braces.
Benefits of Braces
While the invisibility of Invisalign® treatment is definitely a drawing point, this option may not be possible for all patients needing braces. There are some clear benefits to choosing traditional braces for your alignment needs. Here are a few of those benefits:
- Strength: Traditional metal braces are stronger and provide more stability than other treatments. Stainless steel brackets are stronger and less likely to break than plastic, which means less time in the orthodontist’s chair. Because they are attached directly to the teeth, there is no chance of losing expensive clear aligners.
- Variety: Metal braces are now manufactured in various designs, giving versatility and variety to patients. Braces can now be attached lingually, which is the inside surface of teeth, making them virtually invisible.
- Serious Tooth Alignments: Metal braces tend to be more versatile in their treatment range. Meaning, metal braces are the only option for some serious tooth conditions and needs.
- Affordability: Metal braces are still the most basic of orthodontic treatments, which makes them a more affordable option.
