Clear and Metal Braces
While metal braces are considered to be “traditional,” there is nothing “traditional” about the metal braces that we use. Our advanced braces are made for efficient tooth movement and optimal patient comfort. We have a variety of colored ties that you can change every visit to spice up your look. In addition, we offer clear ceramic braces that blend in with the color of your teeth, making the braces more difficult to detect.
What to Expect While Wearing Braces – Metal braces are the most common type of braces, and today, they also happen to be more comfortable than ever before. While it is normal to experience some discomfort during your treatment, various tips and tricks, like applying wax to brackets or using saltwater rinses, can help.
Even though metal braces are strong, you still have to take care of them! Remember that braces are a big investment. In order to ensure that you get the best results, you should avoid hard, crunchy, chewy, and sticky foods, as they can damage your braces!
The Importance of Oral Hygiene – While wearing your braces, brushing and flossing can be more difficult, but it is more important than ever to maintain proper oral hygiene as food can get stuck between your braces and teeth. So, make sure you brush for 2 minutes twice a day, and floss at least once a day.
