Look at the Benefits of Invisible Braces

For many years, braces were only offered with large and uncomfortable metal brackets and wires. These were simply the only orthodontics option available to straighten teeth and align a bite. But now, there are much better choices for orthodontics options that can barely be seen or felt.

What are Invisible Braces?

According to dental experts, one of the most popular choices at family orthodontics practices is the new invisible braces. They have become so popular that they are now offered by most orthodontists in Shelton. Rather than having them placed on the front of your teeth like traditional metal braces, an orthodontist will attach them to the backs of the teeth, hiding them from view. In addition to being less noticeable than traditional braces, they are much more comfortable because they can be completely customized to suit your smile exactly. While they may be less affordable braces than metal, many orthodontists in Shelton offer financing, accept insurance, and take dental discount plans that make them into affordable braces.

Who Can Get Invisible Braces?

While most people think that braces are only for teens, today the field is called family orthodontics because it’s open to the family. And invisible braces are now worn by people of all ages. The only time traditional metal may be better is as braces for kids with major dental issues. But aside from being less recommended as braces for kids, invisible braces are ideal for both adults and teens that don’t want the stigma of wearing braces.

What’s the Process Involved in Invisible Braces?

First, you’ll need to meet with an orthodontist for a consultation and evaluation where you ask if invisible braces are right for you. If so, then impressions will be made of your teeth. These are sent to a special laboratory where they are scanned into a computer that uses 3-D imaging to customize the braces for you. After about six weeks, the braces will be ready. You will return to the orthodontist where they will be attached. Then you can smile with comfort and confidence as you receive the treatment you need.
