What are the Pros and Cons of Braces?
Like everything else in life, orthodontics, and braces in general, are not a perfect solution for everybody. We would like to inform you about some of the pros and cons associated with braces and what your other options might be. Please, take your time and consider your options carefully, or contact Fort Worth Orthodontic Specialists to get the information you need from a knowledgeable orthodontist.
Pros of Braces
Braces are a viable option for many. As you will see, there are more advantages than disadvantages with braces. Here are some of the pros of braces:
- Braces are very effective, perhaps more effective at straightening teeth than any other orthodontic solution.
- Braces can be tuned to provide just the right amount of pull If braces are too tight, we can loosen them. Likewise, if the braces are too loose, we can tighten them to straighten the teeth faster.
- The simple assembly of braces makes maintenance very easy.
Cons of Braces
To learn more about the downside of braces, contact Fort Worth Orthodontic Specialists today. Here are some of the cons of braces:
- Once braces are set, they will remain on the teeth until the teeth are straightened. Therefore, if you change your mind later and decide you want to try another teeth straightening option, it will be too late.
- Braces are comprised of metal brackets and wires. Therefore, it's not uncommon to scrape your cheek and even bleed a little bit from braces, especially at first when the patient is getting used to the braces.
- Braces can be expensive. Depending on your need, braces can cost more than other orthodontic treatment options, such as Invisalign.
What are Good Alternatives to Braces?
If you are thinking about getting braces in Fort Worth, we advise that you come in for a consultation and assessment first. Then, we can discuss your best options with you. Perhaps you will be interested in learning about Invisalign, a clear, non-metal teeth-straightening solution. Invisalign has a lot of benefits. For example, Invisalign can be removed when eating or brushing. Invisalign is generally more comfortable than braces, and for teens, Invisalign is a favorite because most teens become self-conscious when they have metal braces on their teeth. If you need Invisalign or braces in Fort Worth, contact us today.
