Things to Consider When Choosing Braces

At Lion Dental, your local dental practice in Stourbridge, we know how important it is to have healthy teeth and a smile you can be proud of. Many of our patients come to us with concerns about how straight their teeth are, whether the cause is gaps or crowding, bite problems, or wonky teeth – braces can help with these issues.

We use Invisalign braces for our patients because we believe they’re the best on the market and come with lots of fantastic benefits.

3 things you should consider when choosing braces:

1. Cost

Cost is one of the top priorities for our patients, as good quality dental care can add up – and on average, Invisalign braces take around a year to correct your teeth. We offer our patients finance options to help spread the cost, so this doesn’t have to be a worry for you and won’t stop you from seeking treatment that could help transform your smile – and your life.

2. Appearance

When having any sort of treatment, how you’ll look during and immediately after it can be a big concern. Invisalign braces use a series of clear plastic trays to gently move your teeth into position over time – with no unsightly wires and brackets. As the name suggests, they’re almost invisible braces, and once you’re used to wearing them, you’ll probably forget they’re even there.

3. Comfort

Old-fashioned metal braces, which use a combination of wires and brackets, can feel uncomfortable on your teeth and gums. In fact, they can put people off seeking treatment at all. With Clear braces, you’ll only feel slight pressure from your trays, and usually only when you’ve just changed them.

Of course, there are lots of other considerations for your braces, from how easy they are to clean to whether you’ll be able to take them out – and many people worry about whether they’ll affect speech and diet too. With your invisible aligners, you’ll be able to remove them to clean them, and most people don’t find they affect how they sound or what they can eat.
