Cosmetic Braces Can Help with Minor Issues
If you have minor issues with your teeth such as slightly protrusive or minor misalignments, we will likely recommend that you receive cosmetic braces. These type of braces help to correct problems with your front teeth, and they are not meant to provide assistance with bite or jaw issues. The biggest advantage of cosmetic braces is that treatment is usually completed in just a couple of months. Many patients choose with orthodontic treatment in Brooklyn because the braces are removable.
Removable Dental Braces Can Help with Substantial Problems
Removeable braces are used to correct more substantial dental problems that you may face. The treatment length is often a year and sometimes longer. Removeable dental braces are clear aligners made from a flexible material that fit tightly over your teeth. You will wear the aligners for a week or two before graduating to the next set. The process of switching aligners will continue until your teeth are in the position you and your dentist decide is best. Patients often enjoy this treatment option as it is discreet and easy. Others are unable to see that you are wearing braces and you can remove them to eat and clean your teeth, as needed.
It is important to realize that not all patients are ideal candidates for removeable braces or cosmetic braces, and you may be recommended for fixed braces.
