Choosing the Right Type of Braces

Most people dream of having a beautiful smile that they can be proud of. Fortunately, there are a range of orthodontic solutions that can help you achieve the smile of your dreams. The Adventure Dental team will work with you to create a custom orthodontic treatment plan to ensure that you can have a beautiful, straight set of teeth in the least amount of time possible.


Some of the most common types of braces include:

  • Metal braces
  • Gold braces
  • Clear or tooth-colored braces
  • Ceramic braces
  • Damon braces
  • Lingual (behind-the-teeth) braces
  • Invisalign and clear aligners


Traditional vs. Alternative Braces


Traditional braces can help you achieve a straight set of teeth at any age. There are also a number of alternative brace options, such as Invisalign  and clear braces, which are less invasive and can provide a more enjoyable experience for the patient.

Traditional braces can be customized with different options and colored bands, but nothing can match the freedom of removable aligners. While options like Invisalign and clear braces may look more attractive, they may require longer treatment time or appointments.

Many patients choose traditional braces due to the lower cost or shorter treatment time. However, clear braces or removable aligners can make it easier to live and eat normally. You will need to decide what is most important to you and what your ultimate goals are for your lifestyle.

Schedule a Consultation

Many parents opt for the least intrusive option for their children and teens. While you may prefer a certain types of braces, you or your child may not be a good candidate for the procedure. For instance, more severe dental conditions often require traditional braces. You may also need to use rubber bands, headgear, and/or orthodontic spacers, depending on the type and severity of your dental needs.

Rest assured that regardless of the type of braces you choose, they will be customized to provide the most comfortable fit possible. At Adventure Dental, we also offer complimentary cleanings for our orthodontic patients to ensure that their teeth stay clean and healthy during treatment.

The best way to choose the right type of braces is to schedule an initial consultation. This will provide you with more information on which braces are right for your ortho needs, lifestyle and budget. You can also take a look at “Before & After” photos to see just what can be done for your smile. It’s never too early or too late to speak with an orthodontist about your smile.  Contact Adventure Dental for more information.
