Nickel, stainless steel, plated gold, clear ceramic, and Invisalign are all different types of braces to choose from. Your orthodontic team will tell you what options are available and which may be the best choice for your treatment.
The length of treatment will depend on several factors, including the severity of the misalignment of the teeth, age, type of braces, and the overall oral health of the person receiving treatment. Most treatments last around 18 months.
Broken braces, loose bands and protruding wires happen but rarely require emergency treatment. If this happens to you or your child, call your Orthodontist to set up an appointment as soon as possible to fix the problem. Until your orthodontic appointment, we recommend these few tips to help you get through some of these problems:
