Those who need them, usually start to wonder “how much is this going to cost?” Orthodontics care is a long-term investment in your health and well-being. And while braces may appear to have a hefty initial price-tag, when weighed against the true cost of living with problem teeth, however, orthodontic treatments are a wise investment indeed. Braces allow you to live without the pains and discomforts of misaligned teeth, while also giving you an attractive smile. The cost of orthodontic care varies for each individual. So when it comes to choosing braces, choose a type that matches your affordability and desire for functionality.
Metal (Traditional) Braces
Traditional braces are usually the style that comes to mind whenever someone thinks about braces. They are the most affordable type of braces and can be colored, allowing wearers to show off their unique personality. However, they are the most noticeable type of braces as well, and require frequent maintenance.
Clear Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, however instead of using colored brackets, the brackets are clear or tooth-colored. This allows for ceramic braces to be less noticeable than metal braces. However, they are also more expensive than metal braces. Also, if patients do not care for them well, the brackets have the potential to stain easily.
Invisalign® straightens your teeth without the use of wires and brackets. Instead, it uses a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. These aligners are virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you are straightening your teeth. Invisalign® cannot be used for serious teeth alignment issues, but for those needing minor adjustments, it could be a great fit. Invisalign® costs about the same as Damon System braces, however when it comes to comfort and invisibility, the cost of Invisalign® is well worth the value.
