Clear braces work in the same way as metal braces but are less noticeable. These are so discrete you will soon forget that you are wearing braces. Treatment time is comparable to standard metal braces.
Damon Clear Braces
Damon braces allow your teeth to move gently and easily while requiring fewer adjustments than traditional braces. Damon system works more efficiently and as a result the appointments will be shorter and less in number.
Metal braces are the most popular brace choice because children nowadays want to show off their brace and look forward to a new colour elastic ties to be placed on the brace at each orthodontic adjustment. It isn’t uncommon for small groups of friends to wear request a similar matching colour at a time. Thus a trend is started.
Incognito Lingual Braces
Incognito lingual braces are custom-made braces made from cast gold that have a flat design offering you an effective treatment and maximum comfort which are also invisible because they are fitted on the back of the teeth. The best feature about this brace is that there it reduces the risk of appearance of white marks on the outside of teeth after treatment. The outside of teeth will be free from the brace and should the brushing frequency requirement of brushing 5 times a day not be met there will still be a reduced risk of developing visible white lines on the outside faces of teeth.
Forestadent 2D Lingual Braces
These are not bespoke to your teeth and more difficult to work with.
Functional Twin Block Appliance
A Twin Block functional appliance is a pair of two removable appliances used for the correction of the lower jaw to a more advanced position. These type of appliance is only suitable for wear at a time of growth spurt and only in some malocclusions. They are worn for a year and usually fixed braces will follow as the second stage of the treatment.
Invisalign Aligners come in a set and need to be worn in the right order for two weeks at a time and replaced by the next in the series. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally provided it is worn for two weeks. They are removable so in that way they are convenient allowing you to eat and drink what you want during the treatment. Regarding cleaning, there will be no changes to your regular routine because they are removable.
Most importantly, ask your orthodontist if Invisalign would be the right brace for you because this brace is suitable for mild crowding.
Upper Removable Appliance
Removable braces for Interceptive treatment or early treatment usually referred for orthodontic treatment in the mixed dentition(at a time when baby teeth are present and while some baby teeth due to be replaced by permanent teeth) to correct a dental crowding and bite early using removable appliances.
Removable braces worn in permanent dentition is sometimes a necessary stepas a first stage of the orthodontic treatment to correct a deep bite for example, before fixed braces are fitted because removable can be very efficient at reducing a deep bite in a relatively short period of time. Removable braces are good for correcting one or two localised problems but cannot be used for unraveling teeth just like fixed braces and should not considered as a replacement for fixed braces. Once the removable brace has helped to reduced a deep overbite the second phase of the treatment will follow with fixed braces.
Damon braes can be fully metal or made from tooth coloured ceramic.
