Types of Braces
At Buttenbaum Orthodontics, we specialize in creating beautiful and confident smiles. Whether you choose traditional metal braces or other treatments, our goal is to achieve efficient and effective results. Metal braces can close gaps and align teeth quickly, leading to shorter treatment times. They are also cost-effective and built with superior strength and durability. Experience the enduring benefits of braces at Buttenbaum Orthodontics.
Year after year, traditional metal braces are still the most common type orthodontists use. They typically consist of high-grade stainless steel and straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Today's metal braces are more comfortable and also more fun than ever. In some cases you have the ability to choose colored elastics to add a bit of personality to your braces during your orthodontic treatment. If you're looking for something a bit more subtle, you may also be able to choose elastics that are clear or tooth-colored.
Our clear, ceramic braces work the same way that traditional metal braces do, the major difference being that their brackets are made with a clear ceramic material instead. Like their metal counterparts, they're a great option when it comes to achieving a brilliant, straight smile. You'll see them more often on a patient's upper teeth than the lower teeth, since the upper teeth are more often visible. They're a popular treatment option among older teen and adult patients due to the discretion that they offer. The brackets on clear braces can be larger and easier to break than metal brackets, so more care may be needed when taking care of your teeth during your treatment.
Getting to Know the Process
Our dedicated team understands the importance of precision and personalized care. Before starting your braces journey, we will gather digital x-rays, photos, and create a model of your mouth to develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific orthodontic needs.
Once your braces are applied, a wire will be inserted into the brackets, applying gentle pressure to guide your teeth into their desired positions. This process, known as remodeling, not only shifts the teeth but also involves subtle changes in the surrounding bone structure. Cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts work in harmony with the wire, reshaping the bone to support the new tooth alignment.
However, it's important to note that teeth have a natural tendency to shift back over time. To maintain the beautiful results achieved with braces, consistent use of a retainer is crucial. The retainer helps prevent the natural drifting of teeth and keeps them in their new and improved positions.
We are committed to providing comprehensive orthodontic care and ensuring long-term success. Our team will guide you throughout the entire process, from initial consultations and treatment planning to post-braces care and retention. Let us help you achieve a confident and healthy smile.
