While the idea of orthodontic care can be a frightening image to some, with the advances made in the field of orthodontic care, it no longer has to be a long, uncomfortable and nerve racking process. Before treatment with orthodontic braces we will work with you to make any necessary preparations to allow you to have the facial support that comes with maintaining all of your teeth for your lifetime. Even orthodontic braces themselves have changed from the bulky design and image of a mouth full of metal to streamlined aligners and in some cases, hidden braces, treatment that goes unnoticed. A bright, straight smile can not only help your outward appearance but inside give you the confidence to help face any obstacle life can throw at you. Take the steps to better your health and self-esteem by setting up an orthodontic consultation with Dr. Suzuki to discuss your needs and options for orthodontic care.
Metal Braces are the tried and true method of straightening teeth, metal braces are still a widely used tool for orthodontists. Made of stainless steel and sometimes in combination with titanium or even gold, conventional braces require elastic ties to hold the archwire in place.
While the mention of metal braces often conjures up the image of big clunky braces from the past, modern braces are now designed much smaller and comfortable than the days of yore.
For those concerned with the look of metal braces, there are other orthodontic solutions or braces alternatives including clear braces such as Invisalign Aligners. That having been said, metal braces are a tried and true orthodontic technology that provide effective results within a cost effective budget. Like all orthodontic solutions, metal braces aren’t for everyone, but it’s good to know that it is another arrow in the quiver of Dr. Suzuki.
Either way, the appropriate orthodontic solution for your personal scenario will always be worked out with you, while being advised in person by Dr. Suzuki. Great smiles change lives, so the only question is; when are you ready to have your life changed?
