Traditional Braces Las Vegas
Traditional braces are the standard orthodontics we often think of that have brackets that are placed on your teeth with wires connecting them. Braces not only correct crowded and crooked teeth, but they also help eliminate issues you have with eating and speaking.
They are widely used in orthodontics, and innovative dental technology has made traditional braces with smaller brackets that are sleeker and more comfortable.
Braces work to straighten teeth and modify bite patterns with periodic tightenings that place steady and gradual pressure on your teeth over time to improve your teeth and align your jaw.
Metal braces are composed of metal brackets and wiring that most people think of when they hear the word “braces.” What were once large, cumbersome pieces of metal, metal braces have had a modern upgrade with brackets that are much less noticeable.
There are also innovative heat-activated wires that can use the body heat your mouth produces to help move teeth more rapidly in a more comfortable way.
Metal braces are also fun for kids and teens because they customize the color of their bands that are placed around the bracket, which makes having braces a little more fun.
Ceramic braces are very similar to metal braces, with the exception that they’re made from ceramic and other composite materials and come tooth-colored or clear for a more discreet look. Ceramic braces also can be modified with clear or tooth-colored wires.
These braces are less noticeable than metal braces and may have a faster treatment outcome than other orthodontic options.
Both metal and ceramic braces are effective orthodontics that improve the aesthetics and function of your smile.
