Braces: Types, Advantages and Disadvantages of Each Type

Bracae align the teeth and retained a beautiful smile. Here are the advantages and disadvantages of each type of braces.

Traditional metal braces have wires and brackets. Repositioning them while they are attached to the teeth is possible. Some tradition braces are designed with heat-activated archwires. Teeth move faster, and less discomfort is felt because the heat-activated archwires use body heat. They are popular among people who use braces because they are cheap and very efficient. They can be decorated by colored bands to make them more attractive. They are easily noticeable therefore those who are shy avoid them.

There is so much similarity between the lingual and the traditional braces thus they are challenging to differentiate. They are attached to the inside part of the teeth hence they cannot be seen on the outside of the teeth. They are challenging to clean because of how they are positioned. They are also a liked by people because they are invisible. These braces are the least effective because it will take you longer to see the results, but they do not produce perfect outcomes. They are directly in contact with the tongue hence they can be very uncomfortable to wear.

Ceramic braces almost resemble the traditional braces due to their similarity in shape and size. Ceramic is used to make the ceramic braves not metal like the traditional ones. They resemble the color of natural teeth because they are made of ceramic thus they are hard to notice. They are more expensive than the traditional braces, but more people love them because they are not easy to notice. You have to take care of them well because they are easy to stain.

Invsalign braces are easy to notice because they are very distinct. They are of custom-made, clear plastic aligners that are worn over the teeth. Mostly 18 and 30 different aligners are used in the treatment process to align the teeth. Throughout the treatment process, the patient has to remove and replace them, and it is an easy task to replace them. They are invisible and enables one to eat with them comfortably hence they are popular. They are expensive but can only correct minor dental problems.

There are many similarities between the self-ligating braces and traditional braces. The self-ligating braces use elastic bands to hold the wires in place instead of the elastic bands hence less friction is caused. The limited friction makes them more comfortable to wear and easy to clean. They more expensive than the traditional metallic braces and visible.
