Types of Braces We Offer

We offer all five types of braces. Each type of brace comes with its unique set of advantages, and the best choice often depends on the specific needs, preferences, and lifestyle of the patient. Dr. Carlos Francisco Navarro and the team at Navarro Orthodontix are dedicated to guiding you through the options and ensuring you embark on a path that resonates with your orthodontic and aesthetic desires.

1. Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces have been a staple in orthodontics for many years and continue to offer reliable and effective teeth straightening. Crafted from high-quality stainless steel, these braces utilize brackets, archwires, and bands to gradually guide teeth into their optimal positions. Known for their durability and effectiveness, metal braces are capable of correcting various degrees of misalignments, overcrowdings, and bite issues. They are often a preferred choice for more complex orthodontic cases, providing precision and control throughout the treatment duration.

2. Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces combine the structural design of traditional braces with a more aesthetic appeal by using clear or tooth-colored brackets. Blending in with the natural color of your teeth, ceramic braces offer a more discreet orthodontic solution without compromising the effectiveness of the treatment. They are often chosen by adults and teens who are concerned about the visibility of their orthodontic appliances, providing a balance between aesthetic appeal and reliable tooth movement.

3. Lingual Braces

Lingual braces offer the utmost in discretion by being placed on the inside surfaces of the teeth, making them invisible when you smile. Customized to adhere to the lingual (tongue side) aspect of your teeth, lingual braces provide effective and precise orthodontic correction while maintaining a completely aesthetic exterior. Ideal for individuals who wish to keep their orthodontic journey private, lingual braces cater to both aesthetic and functional correction without being noticeable to others.

4. Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces utilize a specialized clip instead of elastic bands to hold the archwire in place, reducing the amount of friction on the wire and potentially providing a more comfortable experience for the patient. Designed to move the teeth with less force and friction, self-ligating braces can offer a more efficient and possibly quicker treatment path. They are available in both metal and clear brackets, providing options to suit aesthetic preferences and ensuring efficient and effective orthodontic correction.

5. Clear Aligners (e.g., Invisalign®)

While not technically braces, clear aligners like Invisalign offer an alternative to traditional orthodontic approaches with a virtually invisible treatment method. Using a series of transparent, removable aligners, Invisalign guides your teeth to their desired positions with subtlety and convenience. Tailor-made to fit snugly over your teeth, each aligner incrementally shifts your teeth, providing a flexible and aesthetic option for those who prefer a metal-free orthodontic experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

Explore our frequently asked questions to gain insights and find answers to common inquiries about Braces treatment at Navarro Orthodontix.

How long will I need to wear braces?

The duration of orthodontic treatment with braces varies widely among individuals, typically ranging from 12 to 36 months. Factors influencing treatment length include the complexity of the case, the type of braces used, and the patient’s adherence to care instructions.

Will braces cause discomfort or pain?

While the application of braces is not painful, some discomfort or mild soreness is normal after initial placement and subsequent adjustments. This usually subsides within a few days as your mouth adapts to the new appliance.

How often will I need appointments for adjustments?

Adjustment appointments are a crucial part of the orthodontic journey. Typically, you’ll need to visit Navarro Orthodontix for adjustments every 4-8 weeks, but the exact frequency can depend on your individual treatment plan and progress.

Can I still eat my favorite foods with braces?

While wearing braces, it’s advisable to avoid certain foods that may damage them, such as hard, sticky, or overly chewy items. However, with care and some modifications, you can enjoy a wide variety of foods during your treatment.

How do I maintain oral hygiene with braces on?

Maintaining good oral hygiene is paramount during orthodontic treatment. It involves regular brushing, flossing using specialized orthodontic tools, and potentially using an antiseptic mouthwash to keep your teeth and braces clean.

What happens after my braces are removed?

After the active phase of orthodontic treatment, you will transition to the retention phase. You will likely be provided with a retainer to wear, which ensures that your teeth maintain their new positions. Dr. Navarro will guide you on retainer use and any follow-up appointments for post-treatment assessments.

Are braces suitable for adults, or are they just for children and teenagers?

Absolutely, braces are suitable for adults! It’s never too late to correct your smile and improve oral health. Adult orthodontic treatment may take a bit longer due to the maturity of bone structures, but adults can achieve fantastic results with braces, contributing to enhanced aesthetics and improved dental function.

Will braces interfere with playing sports or musical instruments?

Braces might require a little adjustment period in activities involving your mouth, such as playing wind instruments or engaging in contact sports. For sports, it is recommended to use a mouthguard to protect your braces and teeth. Musicians may take a little time to adapt but generally can play their instruments effectively with braces after a brief adjustment period.
