So you’re thinking about braces in Richmond?

If you were thinking about getting dental braces in Richmond, you wouldn’t be alone. Dental braces are fast becoming as popular a treatment for adults as they are for children and teenagers. This is due, in part, to advances in modern technology that have enabled a wide range of orthodontic solutions to appear in the last few decades. But where do you begin to get your head around it all? What is the difference between the different types of braces, do they have different effects and do they matter?

Luckily the problem of getting straighter teeth is now no longer a problem of how, but a problem of which one to choose! Luckily we have compiled this handy guide to choosing the right dental braces for you.


Orthodontics – all you need to know about getting braces in Richmond

So once you decide to opt for braces in Richmond, you have a choice to make, but don’t worry we can help you decide on the best solution.

Damon (self-ligating braces)

Damon braces are like traditional wire and bracket braces that you may have seen others wearing through their teenage years or beyond. They are fixed braces that work around the clock to push your teeth back into their best shape! You also have the option of having virtually invisible braces with this treatment. The main advantage of these braces is that they can be up to six months faster than traditional wire braces!

Clarity Advanced (ceramic braces)

Clarity are a popular choice for braces in Richmond, because they offer greater comfort with minimized soft tissue (gum and mouth) contact.  They are made from a tooth-coloured material, and the comfortable design means that you can wear them with confidence throughout the day.

Incognito (invisible lingual braces)

Incognito braces are amongst the most discreet orthodontic treatments, being that they are fixed to the inside of the teeth and so are unlikely to be seen by even close friends and family. Incognito hidden braces give you the confidence to smile throughout and after your treatment.

Invisalign (Clear aligners)

Invisalign are perhaps the most well known branded orthodontic solution. Their unique clear aligner system gives freedom and flexibility to patients looking for straighter teeth with braces in Richmond.
