4 Things You Need to Know About Braces


  1. Having Metal Braces has its Advantages

    Not only will you save money with metal braces, but you will have a nice, gleaming metallic smile =). Metal braces rarely break and straighten your teeth faster than other kinds of braces. The brackets also don’t stain easily, and are available in silver and gold. With every pro there is a con. Metal braces may irritate the gums, especially if you develop a canker sore. In addition, it will take more time to adjust to them.

  2. To Ceramic or not to Ceramic?

    Ceramic braces blend in with your teeth. If you are self-conscious about braces, this solves the unsightly problem of a metal mouth. Although, your dentist changes the ligatures every month, they can stain easily if you smoke and or drink a lot of soda or coffee. If you chose ceramic braces, be prepared for a few more months of treatment and more trips to the dentist to adjust them, which isn’t that bad because you get to hang out in the most awesome waiting room =).

  4. Abracadabra! Now you see them, now you don’t!

    Here at Burleson Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign. Invisalign braces, are barely detectable to others and don’t irritate gums like metal braces. Although Invisalign require less visits to the orthodontist, treatment time is the same as metal braces. In addition, require less visits to the orthodontist.

  5. Cleanliness is next to Godliness

    When taking care of braces, keeping them clean is crucial. Avoid eating foods like popcorn and sunflower seeds that can get stuck in between and underneath braces. If you have habits of chewing gum and or ice, wait until the braces are off. A big sacrifice for a lifetime of a proud beautiful smile. When you brush your teeth, use a regular toothbrush and maneuver carefully from the top on down, and then from the bottom to the top of each tooth as well as floss, floss, floss.
