Wearing Braces Makes Happy Faces

Types of Braces Lawrenceville, GA

A Variety of Options for Every Smile

As teeth grow in and the jaw develops, many people incur problems like overbites and misaligned teeth. To fix these issues, patients can choose to get braces, which will straighten and realign your smile. Raglin Orthodontics has many different types of braces for teeth.

To make an appointment with Raglin Orthodontics, call us at (770) 629-9216.

There are many different kinds of braces on the market and each person must be evaluated individually to determine which type is the right fit. If you are looking for orthodontic treatment for yourself or your child, we can meet with you to discuss your options in our state-of-the-art facility. Our Lawrenceville orthodontist will assess your smile and explain the different kinds of braces available to you.

What are the Different Types of Braces?

Thanks to advanced technology, metal braces are no longer the only option available to consumers. While we still use traditional metal braces for many patients, there are other alternatives that may be appropriate. Our Lawrenceville orthodontist will work with you to choose the right kind of braces for your smile and your lifestyle. Visit Raglin Orthodontics for further information regarding traditional metal braces and the most common alternatives.

The most common types of braces include:

  • Self-litigating braces: These braces use the same type of material as traditional metal braces but do not use elastics.
  • Clear aligners: Clear aligners (Invisalign, for example) are made of removable and invisible trays that straighten your teeth.
  • Clear (ceramic) braces: Ceramic braces are less visible than metal braces because they are made of clear material.
  • Metal braces: Traditional metal braces use metal brackets, wires, and bands to straighten them into the ideal position.

    No two smiles are the same, and every patient will require something different. The team at Raglin Orthodontics can help you understand the benefits and potential drawbacks of each type so that you can make an informed decision.

    What Foods Should I Avoid With Braces?

    There are several foods you should refrain from eating while undergoing treatment with traditional braces. Foods that are sugary and sticky should be avoided. You should also stay away from foods that are excessively crunchy or chewy. Anything that requires you to bite down hard, with your front teeth, should be limited if you want to avoid damage to your braces.
