Back in the day, braces were undesirable to say the least. Braces have come a long way. In our office, we see kids who come in begging to get braces put on! It is probably a social thing, but they seem to love the idea of getting to pick different color bands at each visit. Adults, on the other hand, seem to still shy away from the idea of having a mouth full of metal! Well, we have some good news for them!
First of all, metal braces aren't what they used to be. They are a lot smaller in size, and newer materials allow us to finish cases much quicker than used to be possible.
If that doesn't make it more appealing, we also have the option of clear brackets when conventional braces are the method of choice for our adult patients. Clear brackets takes the worry out of going to work each day and dealing with other people because they are almost unnoticeable.
If brackets are not an option for you...more good news! Dr. Ras is also able to straighten your teeth with clear aligners. This option is almost always used only for adults in our office due to compliance. These aligners are an awesome option if you just cannot function comfortably on a daily basis with brackets on your teeth but still need your teeth straightened.
Call our office today to see how you can have your teeth straightened in as little as six months!!
