To help you make the right decision about orthodontic care, here’s a look at the two types of braces that Dr. Zainali offers:

About Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are fixed appliances that are attached to the teeth through metal bands and metal or ceramic brackets. Unlike clear braces, metal and ceramic braces generally cannot be removed and remain on the teeth until treatment is complete.

The two types of traditional braces include metal and ceramic. The major difference between the two is that metal braces use a stainless steel bracket whereas ceramic braces are made of a translucent ceramic material.

Who Should Consider Traditional Braces?

For patients that are looking for a reliable, effective, and economical treatment option, metal braces are the recommended option. They’ve been around for several decades and have proven to be a successful option for millions of patients around the world.

For patients that are looking for the reliability and effectiveness of metal braces but are looking for something that’s a little less intrusive, ceramic braces are a great option. While they do have a higher price tag, the fact that the brackets blend in with the natural color of your teeth makes the aesthetic appeal much more desirable than metal options.

About Invisalign

Invisalign treatment involves using a series of plastic aligners that serve as clear braces. Treatment begins by using special molds to assess your current smile. Based on your molding, a unique treatment plan is created that involves wearing a series of plastic aligners over 2-3 week increments.

One of the main benefits of Invisalign is that they’re clear braces and are often unrecognizable to other people. Also, they can be removed at your leisure to eat, drink, brush your teeth, etc.

Who Should Consider Clear Braces Like Invisalign?

If achieving a perfect smile discreetly is more important than budget, clear braces like Invisalign make for a great solution. They’re typically used for patients in minor to moderate cases and may not be suitable if your case is severe or if you’re looking for braces for young children.
