Metal Braces & More
Most patients we treat at About Faces and Braces choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.
While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have several other options.
Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances
It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.
Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.
Aside from the obvious differences, Invisalign aligners are best at treating mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Fixed appliances are generally needed for more serious and comprehensive treatment.
