THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TEETH BRACES AVAILABLE FOR TEENAGERS.
Depending on the individuals needs and reasons, some of them may be found in dire need of these devices called braces. Among the reasons why most of the people go for the braces is to straighten their misaligned teeth or fix their problem of the under-bite. Majority of the people with braces acquired them at their teenage life but nowadays even the adults obtain them also, and because of the difference in the age groups, there exist different options of braces for the individuals according to their tastes.
The components of the braces include the thin metal wire, the ring brackets, and the metal band, and all these components are conjoined to make the complete set of the braces that are then attached to the teeth. The full set of the braces on the teeth pushes the misaligned teeth into their position but this does not take a short time, but it can take several years for the teeth to be in their desired position.
The two factors that affect the type of braces to be bought either Invisalign, lingual, traditional meta braces, or the clear ceramic are the dentist’s recommendation and the amount of money the patient can afford to purchase among the four types of braces. Many teenagers would need those kinds of braces that their peers have, and they will go for the traditional metal braces because of their popularity among the peers, and also they are cost effective.
When compared to other types of braces, Invisalign happens to be more expensive but they come with the advantage of easy to clean and can be removed during eating time, and these braces are mostly used by the adults than the teenagers. Some people do not like that attention of everyone knowing that they have braces in the mouth, and this makes them go for the lingual teeth braces because they happen to be invisible as they are installed at the back of the teeth unlike the others that are installed on the front. Finally, ceramic braces which are an upgrade of the traditional metal braces are hard to be identified from a distance because their brackets take the color of the natural teeth, and they need to be properly cared for so that teeth fixing can occur smoothly without any more problems.
The amount of money to be given for the purchase of the braces depends on the type that has been selected and the kind of teeth problem that an individual has, and this two factors do not leave behind the dentist’s recommendation after conducting the examination.
