Braces : all you should know
Braces orthodontic treatment has been proven for several years. This way of aligning the patient's teeth has evolved over time and has considerably improved in comfort and aesthetics. The appearance of braces is much more discreet than before, allowing patients to follow their treatment without being noticed.
Orthodontic braces have been on the market for a long time and they now come with several aesthetic options, ranging from subtlety to multiple colors. Depending on your personality, it is possible to adapt braces treatment to the image you want to project. Your orthodontist will discuss all the available options.
To find out if you need Invisalign, a consultation with Dr. Frederic Lavoie at our orthodontic office in Montreal is necessary. Other types of treatments may be recommended if ceramic or metal braces are not suitable to the treatment of your malocclusion. Make an appointment with us to find out which orthodontic treatment is better for your needs.
We often hear about "transparent" braces that are tooth-colored. These are ceramic braces. They allow to move and align the teeth very effectively. It is possible to customize the brackets by adding color elastics.
When people think about conventional braces they usually think about metal brackets. Just as effective as other types of braces, the metal braces align the teeth gently. We use the smallest orthodontic braces to facilitate dental hygiene and ensure discreet and aesthetic treatment. Whether you have opted for a metal or ceramic appliance, be assured that you will get the desired result.
