Today, there are many different options when it comes to orthodontics and dental braces in Brevard, NC. Clear braces, ceramic braces, lingual braces and traditional metal braces can all help straighten the teeth. Even though there are lots of choices, it may be best in some cases to stick with the tried and true, traditional metal braces. Dr. David S. Krishingner, Dr. Jeffrey T. Root and Dr. John Krishingner at Water Oak Dental Group located near Hendersonville, NC can help you make the right choice for you or your child’s case. Here are some reasons why going with the traditional braces could be the best option.
Our dentists who also specialize in orthodontic treatment, have more control when treating patients with metal braces. Other types of treatments do not give your dental provider as much individualized control as the metal variety. For patients who require multiple adjustments to their treatment, the metal braces may make the most sense.
While metal braces are more noticeable on the teeth than the newer clear braces, they are also cheaper over the course of treatment. Some adults prefer to have a more subtle look with clear braces or Invisalign®. This option is more expensive than the traditional metal braces.
Better for Overcrowding
Growing kids who have a lot of crowding in their mouth can get better results with metal braces. As the adult teeth continue to come in, only metal braces can help ensure the teeth are properly placed for better bite control and an improved appearance down the road.
Kids and adults who choose metal braces can also give their dental work a fun, colorful look with custom bracket colors or elastics. Our office can help make the treatment process for braces more manageable and fun for young patients.
