Which Orthodontic Treatment Is Right For You?

Orthodontics from your dentists in Frederick, MD, can improve your smile.

Have you been thinking about straightening your smile? If so, you probably have been thinking about which orthodontic treatment is right for you. Each type of orthodontic treatment has advantages, and your dentist or orthodontist can help you decide.

Your doctors at Pearlfection Dentistry in Frederick, MD, offer comprehensive general, cosmetic, specialty, and orthodontic dental care, to improve your smile.

Now that you’ve decided to take the important step of straightening your smile, let’s take a quick look at how a straight smile helps you. A straight smile will:

  • Enhance your appearance, because a straight smile is more eye-catching and appealing
  • Boost your self-esteem, because you know you look your best
  • Improve your chewing ability, which aids your digestion and benefits your overall health
  • Improve your oral health, because straight teeth are much easier to keep clean with brushing and flossing

So, which orthodontic treatment is right for you? Let’s talk about your options:

Conventional braces- which consist of brackets and wires are the tried-and-true choice and are often an excellent option for more complex cases. They can be customized to give you a more discreet look. You can choose from:

  • Ceramic braces, with ceramic brackets and tooth-colored wires
  • Metal braces, with metal brackets and wires
  • Lingual braces, which are bonded to the back surfaces of your teeth

Aligners- which are dental appliances. You wear the aligners for a couple of weeks and then move on to the second set of aligners, which you wear for another couple of weeks. You keep progressing to new sets of aligners as your teeth gradually and comfortably move.
