Traditional braces—it’s a favored device in an orthodontist office. Invisalign or clear aligners are popular right now because they are clear and removable, but many patients still prefer traditional braces compared to other options.
Why traditional braces stand the test of time
“Out with the old and in with the new” isn’t always the best way to think of things. Traditional, metal braces are still widely used today because they are the best treatment for severe cases of malocclusion. Plus, metal braces help shift teeth more quickly than other devices.
Although metal braces are the most noticeable of orthodontic devices, their appearance has improved in recent years by making the brackets smaller as well as different shapes and colors.
The factors that factor into your course of treatment
Each orthodontic case is different, and that is why Dr. Kwong needs to consider multiple factors to determine which orthodontic device will be the most effective treatment for you. Here are the key points your orthodontist will need to consider:
- Severity of bite and alignment problems
- Treatment time specific to your case
- Your opinion regarding treatment
In Portage, braces are available at Kwong Orthodontics.
