Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles ~ George Eliot

Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles. So said George Eliot. It’s really true that when you smile, you attract people to you by having a much more pleasant demeanor. But when you frown or scowl, you not only repel people from wanting to interact with you, but you also over a long period of time develop unattractive wrinkles on your face. So you definitely want to smile. There are many ways you can proudly wear a smile, and getting orthodontic work to straighten your teeth and perfect your smile is one of them. There are several key types of orthodontia to know about.

Conventional Metal Brackets

Although newer types of orthodontic appliances have come about over the years, metal brackets still continue to be the most popular type of orthodontic treatment. They involve placing metal brackets on all of the teeth. They provide a more affordable option than some other types of orthodontic appliances.

Invisalign Appliance

This has become more popular over the years, especially with people who want less intrusive appliances while they’re going through orthodontic treatment because of the “invisible” look of the appliances. Invisalign is made of clear overlay aligner material. Both adults and teens can be great candidates for this type of orthodontic treatment. One main down side of Invisalign is the higher cost than treatments like conventional metal brackets.

Ceramic Material

Another option for people who want a less intrusive look from a cosmetic standpoint is ceramic braces, which are made out of clear material. This type of braces can be less sturdy than conventional metal braces, so they might be better suited for adults or people who can handle the braces with extra care.
