What Type of Braces Do You Need?

Contact us

During your initial consultation with your orthodontist, you’ll be asked to choose what type of braces in North Lauderdale you’d like to get. Unfortunately, some people get so overwhelmed with their options that they end up asking their orthodontist to choose for them.

Although your orthodontist knows a lot about braces, ultimately, you’ll be the one wearing the device for months or years. So, you must think long and hard about it. Before your treatment, we suggest you do your research to make it easier to decide what type of treatment is best for you.

How to Choose the Right Type of Braces

Identify What Your Needs Are

Having plenty of options is a good thing, but many people find it difficult and confusing. Before you start exploring your options, we believe you should identify your needs. How much money are you willing to spend on braces? Are you in a rush to complete the treatment? Do you have qualms about clear braces? Your orthodontist can help narrow down your options by basing them on your unique case.

Research Each Type on Your List

Now that you have narrowed down your list, it’s time to go in-depth with your research. Go over your list again and research each type, learning about its pros and cons.

For example, although metal braces are glaring and bulky, they can treat severe and complex cases. Meanwhile, clear aligners are less obvious, the trays are removable and super easy to maintain, but they aren’t the best choice if you have a complicated case.
