Types of Braces – Chicago

Metal braces The most inexpensive type of braces for adults are the traditional, stainless-steel versions. Obviously, the drawback to wearing these is how visible they are. Metal braces hold a thin wire held in place with rubber bands to put pressure on the teeth and move them to the desired place. Metal braces can irritate gums and cheeks at first. Once you have them on, you have to watch what you eat, avoiding things that can stick to the braces, such as caramel or gum. You also have to avoid eating hard food, which can move or dislodge the braces.

Alternatives to traditional braces.
If you or your child doesn’t wish to wear traditional metal braces, we offer plenty of other orthodontic treatment options. Lingual braces Lingual braces work in the same way as regular braces, but they’re mounted behind the teeth instead of the front. These braces hide behind your teeth and are nearly invisible from the front of your teeth. They also don’t get in the way of those who play contact sports or play woodwind instruments. These braces are made by making impressions of your teeth and sending them to a special laboratory where every bracket is custom-made for each individual tooth. The brackets are then mounted behind the teeth on the second visit. When wearing lingual braces, be careful to avoid hard, sticky foods such as chewing gum or hard candy as they can get stuck in the braces. Patients should also avoid drinking sugary, fizzy drinks as they can cause your braces to deteriorate. Patients may develop a slight lisp or have some discomfort after receiving their braces, but those symptoms will disappear after a few days. Clear ceramic braces Ceramic braces are designed just the same as traditional braces, but are made out of a translucent ceramic material that blend in with your teeth. They provide the same treatment as metallic braces but are less noticeable. To discuss your alternative options with braces, please contact us for a complimentary consultation and we’ll be able to further discuss lingual braces and cost at an individual level.
