Did your dentist refer you to an orthodontist for braces treatment? If so, then you should consider the different types of options you have when it comes to braces. This video goes over all the types of treatment options available, and which ones are believed to be the most popular.
Braces treatment is commonly used to help correct the position of your teeth and jaw. There are four main types of braces.
The four types are conventional, self-ligating, ceramic, and clear aligners.
The most widely used method of braces is the conventional option. This treatment uses colorful rubber bands and metal. The treatment time ranges from one to three years.
Self-ligating braces are also a widely used treatment because they have a faster result, less pain, and require fewer visits. They look just like your conventional braces, but without the rubber bands.
If you are looking for braces that are less noticeable, then you should consider ceramic treatment. These function just as conventional braces do, but the brackets are made out of ceramic material instead of metal.
The last type of braces treatment provided by an orthodontist is clear aligners. This alternative is made out of a clear plastic mold that fits around your teeth. You put them in and take them out like a tray.
