For some people going through traditional metal braces treatment, getting your braces put on may feel like a prison sentence for your teeth and you may find yourself wishing for the day your pearly whites are no longer behind bars. Though old school braces are certainly safe and effective, some find the process painful, uncomfortable and aesthetically displeasing. However, today’s traditional wire braces have new technology and new treatment techniques allowing more comfort while moving your teeth.
But you can’t have the relief of getting your braces taken off without getting them put on in the first place.
Your teeth will thank you
Getting braces is like making an investment in yourself. Not only are you investing in a new smile, but in your physical, oral and mental health as well. Having crooked teeth or other dental issues can pose health problems and may even influence how other people perceive and interact with you. Therefore, getting braces when you need them is a no brainer.
Fortunately, there are plenty of other types of braces that provide comfort and discretion for patients. If the aesthetic of traditional braces bothers you, ceramic braces are a similar but much less visible alternative. Lingual braces are also a discrete style, with smart wire brackets that sit behind the teeth that are customized, state of the art and hidden from view. No matter which braces you and your orthodontist choose, getting your braces taken off will be a joyous and exciting day.
Getting that feeling daily
If you love the feeling of getting your braces taken off, Invisalign may be right for you. Unlike ceramic braces or lingual braces, Invisalign patients can take their braces off daily. Invisalign uses a series of aligner trays that are replaced as your treatment progresses. Therefore, they can be removed for eating so you won’t miss out on your favorite foods. Playing sports and dental hygiene such as flossing are easier with Invisalign. Let’s not forget photographs!
