Braces are a fact of life for most of us and the benefits they provide are very vital. If you are wearing braces currently, you know that smile will be straighter in the end and your bite will be very comfortable. Well, it is common for you to feel embarrassing to wires and brackets that cover your teeth. If the visible braces are the matter of your concern, there are different ways to find less visible braces treatment options, use techniques which divert your attention, or reduce the appearance of your braces.
Get Clear or Ceramic Braces
Traditional braces are lighter than they used to be, but they are still made of metal which highlight well over white teeth. Ask the orthodontic whether ceramic braces are right alternative to your orthodontic requirements. Ceramic braces are made of tooth-colored material. They are also known as clear braces as the ceramic adds good camouflage. Some ceramic braces often use tooth-colored wires to reduce the looks of your braces.
Wear lingual braces
Also known as hidden braces, lingual braces are placed under your teeth. Your orthodontist first take measurement of your teeth and send it to the lab to manufacture custom brackets. Then, these brackets are cemented to the back of teeth. Then, these braces work similarly to typical braces. They put consistent, gentle pressure to align your teeth.
Also known as invisible braces, aligners are a range of customized, clear, and removable appliances which are usually worn out for around 2 weeks each, and around 24 hours a day, if possible. Each aligner moves your teeth to their right position.
Avoid certain food in public
Don’t eat foods that are overly chewy in public. They can get stuck in the teeth and draw other’s attention to your mouth and can cause embarrassment. Also avoid overly sticky foods which can get stuck in your mouth. They can damage brackets and wires of the braces.
