Ebert Orthodontics Is Now

cheyenne-co orthodontist how to choose braces or invisalignThere are several different kinds of braces available today. The old, traditional metal braces still work great, and now there are clear braces, and even removable aligners available also! Each has its pros and cons, and your Cheyenne CO orthodontist can help you decide which will work best for you and your smile.

Learn About Braces & Invisalign From Our Cheyenne Orthodontist

Metal Braces

Metal brackets and wires have worked well for generations, and now you can even get gold braces, which work the same way but which offer a more muted, softer, and warmer appearance. The gold can blend better with the natural color of teeth to create a more elegant and sophisticated appearance. Rubber bands can now be customized by color when they are changed at regular maintenance visits, and you can even opt for designer brackets in the shapes of hearts, flowers, stars, footballs, diamonds or a “Mickey” like you might see at Disney World. Whatever route you might go here, metal braces are generally the most affordable and most effective option, despite their reputation.

Clear Braces

These are the same size and shape as their metal cousins and provide the same terrific results, but they are less visually evident. They have the same bonded brackets and archwire used in traditional metal braces and use clear or white ligatures – little rubber bands – to hold the archwire in place on each bracket and to guide teeth in a particular direction along the gum line, depending on individual needs. Even the wires can be frosted or white to further minimize the appearance of braces in your smile. The rubber bands can stain slightly over time from foods with strong colors, but they are changed at every regularly scheduled maintenance adjustment to maintain the necessary pressure and appearance. These braces are more costly than traditional metal braces and can be prone to some staining, but they give patients cleaner and brighter smiles when maintained properly.

Your Cheyenne CO Orthodontist Can Help You Choose The Braces Style That Best Fits Your Needs

Aligner Trays

A system like Invisalign consists of a series of customized plastic tray aligners that are removable and typically replaced every two weeks to keep your teeth moving in the desired direction. These are only available for teenagers and adults and might be less effective for more severe cases of tooth misalignment. They can also be a more costly method and require more maintenance, but since they’re removable, you wouldn’t have any restrictions on the kinds of food you wish to eat.

“I’m 15 years old and have been coming to Ebert Orthodontics for the past 3 years. I love the staff, they are all really friendly and sweet! I am allergic to latex so I can’t have the colored bands, but last time I was in I was pleasantly surprised to see they had gotten me a special colored latex-free band! (It’s the little things that count!)”

“Dr. Ebert and her team have changed my life! Before my braces I was afraid to smile and show my teeth. After my braces got taken off I was confident and smiled showing my teeth. I cannot thank you enough for helping me.”
