See the Beauty of Invisible Braces

For decades, bulky metal braces have been worn to straighten teeth and correct a misaligned bite. These were the only orthodontics option available. Fortunately, there are now more discreet and comfortable choices for orthodontics treatment.

A Clear Look at Invisible Braces

One of the most requested options in family orthodontics practices today is invisible braces. They have become so popular that they are now offered by most orthodontists in Flint. Rather than having them placed on the front of your teeth like traditional metal braces, an orthodontist will attach them to the backs of the teeth, which makes them invisible from view. In addition to being less noticeable than traditional braces, these lingual braces or iBraces are much more comfortable because they can be completely customized to suit your smile needs. While they may be less affordable braces than metal, many orthodontists in Flint offer financing, accept insurance, and take dental discount plans like DentRite that make them into affordable braces.

The Right Ages for Treatment

While most people think that braces are only for teens, today the field is called family orthodontics because it’s open to the family. And invisible braces are now worn by people of all ages. The only time traditional metal may be better is as braces for kids with major dental issues. But aside from being less recommended as braces for kids, invisible braces are ideal for both adults and teens who don’t want the stigma of wearing braces.

Straight Facts About the Procedure

The first step in getting invisible braces is having a consultation with an orthodontist. If they’re ideal for your needs, impressions of your teeth will be made and sent to a dental lab where they are scanned into a computer that uses 3-D imaging to customize the braces especially for you. After about six weeks, the braces will be ready. You will return to the orthodontist where they will be attached. Then you can smile with comfort and confidence as you receive the treatment you need.
