Traditional braces are still the most effective solution when it comes to correcting severe bite problems. However, there are other effective resolutions your New York, NY dentist can use for milder bite problems. They include braces, clear aligners, and retainers.
Aligners are popular choice because they give you the ability to correct a problem without it being noticeable. They are clear and designed to fit over your teeth snugly while gently shifting your teeth back into the right positions. They are best for treating mild to medium bite problems. However, they are less effective when it comes to treating more serious over- and underbite problems as well as spacing issues.
Braces: Metal, Lingual and Ceramic
Braces are an effective solution when it comes to correcting mild to serious bite problem. They are also the least expensive choice. One obvious drawback, however, is the fact that they tend to be fairly conspicuous. You do have the option of lingual or ceramic braces that are much less conspicuous.
Retainers: Removable and Non-removable
Retainers help sustain the work that other bite solutions have resolved. They also help aid in strengthening and rebuilding the bone. Permanent retainers require very little compared to removable retainers. Removable retainers must be taken out and cleaned and aren’t designed to be worn all the time.
