Gone are the days of routinely extracting teeth for the correction of orthodontic crowding. Today’s orthodontic treatment philosophies involve using arch development appliances to create space for crowded teeth. Yes, extracting permanent teeth is still sometimes necessary for certain cases, but it is definitely not the norm and only done when absolutely necessary.
Beyond their traditional color, the only thing traditional about these braces is that you can see them. Contemporary braces are made of super strong metal alloys derived from the space program. Their strength allows them to be the smallest of all braces and therefore the most comfortable. Their density makes them ultra slippery so teeth move faster than they ever have before. Today’s braces, in combination with other high tech materials mean fewer office visits to complete treatment.
Ceramic braces utilize less noticeable brackets for patients concerned about aesthetic appearances. Ceramic brackets are translucent, so they blend in with your natural tooth color. This means that unlike traditional stainless steel braces, with ceramic braces your smile will not look ‘metallic.’ In addition, ceramic brackets are designed so that they won’t stain or discolor over long periods of time. Dr Reese can let you know if you are a candidate for ceramic braces.
