Types of Braces
Braces are important orthodontic devices that help straighten or otherwise align teeth. Braces are known to have been an effective method of improving smiles for many years. There are many different types of braces, with options available for a variety of different situations. If you are looking to get braces in the near future, feel free to reach out to us at Pobanz Orthodontics in South Ogden and Pleasant View, Utah. We provide comprehensive orthodontic options and are happy to discuss any questions that you may have about which choice may suit your situation best.
How Do Braces Work
Braces are able to change the position of your teeth by using pressurized brackets, wires, and bands to slowly move the teeth over time. Braces are a great option for several different types of tooth alignment issues. Tooth alignment issues that can be solved using braces include overbites, underbites, crooked teeth, tooth gaps, etc. Braces used to be only available in metal all-size-fit-all options. However, there are now other types of braces and alternatives to braces that are accessible.
We at Pobanz Orthodontics are passionate about giving our customers the best possible orthodontic experience. That is why we offer traditional braces, Damon Braces, and Pitts 21 braces as options for treatment. We also offer other alternatives including Invisalign.
Traditional braces are what most people think of when it comes to straightening their teeth. Traditional braces utilize metal brackets and wires to do their job and are adhered to the front of the teeth. This creates a sparkly, youthful, metallic smile that many people would likely associate with middle school. While traditional braces are effective and changes have been made to make them more appealing, they still can look unattractive or feel uncomfortable for some individuals.
Damon braces are another orthodontic treatment that we offer our clients. What makes this option different is that it aims to create a fuller smile. Studies indicate that a rounded, full smile looks more natural than a smile that is straight across, which is why this treatment was invented. With this option, your beautiful, clean smile will look like the product of good genes and luck. Damon braces are available in both traditional metal and virtually invisible ceramic styles. Damon aligners are also an option for those who prefer a removable/ less noticeable option.
The last brace option that we offer here at Pobanz Orthodontist is Pitts 21 braces. Pitts 21 is our most inconspicuous and technologically advanced option available. Using a similar process to traditional braces, Pitts 21 technology makes use of metal or ceramic brackets to move the teeth, but instead of using a ton of wires and plastic bands, Pitts 21 only requires a single underwire that keeps the brackets taut. This makes eating and cleaning your teeth more comfortable and makes trips to the dental office quicker and more efficient.
