With the emergence of advanced dental treatments, people have numerous choices to restore their smile. One of the more common problems that most of the people face is misalignment of teeth which causes discomfort to people. Thomas R. Gonzales has 40 years professional experience in handling clients having such dental disorders and providing them best orthodontic treatment (Braces) for patients of all ages, including children and adults.

Why people need braces?

Braces are used widely to align the teeth and correct the appearance of teeth. Orthodontic recommend you get your teeth braced when there is a need to enhance orofacial appearance. Dental disorders like crooked teeth, overbites, misaligned jaw position, disorders of jaws are some causes that make one take braces.


What types of braces are best for you? 

People, who come at clinic for braces so that they can get their misaligned teeth straightened, often ask about the types of braces.  There are mainly four types of braces .i.e.  Traditional Metal Braces, Ceramic Braces, Lingual Braces, Invisalign.

Metal Braces

Metal braces has been using for years but have varied disadvantages. These are traditional braces which have lost popularity due to their visibility and appearance. Causing discomfort and awkward looks, most of the people do not go for these. Such types of braces hold a thin wire meant to put pressure on teeth but creating lot of discomfort for people in eating, drinking and talking.  You need to avoid various food items while wearing these. The only advantage is that metal braces are very cost-effective.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are less visible than metallic braces and look good. These look more natural as ceramic braces use too-colored wires which make them look natural.

Lingual Braces

These are much like traditional metal braces. The difference is that the wires and brackets are put on inside the teeth also.

Clear Aligners

These are the most popular types of braces due to desired features they have to offer. These come in various sizes. These aligners are removable and look the most natural. These are almost invisible as the name suggests.

Removable Orthodontic Correction

Detachable aligners are available and often the preferred orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth. These aligners include clear removable and retainers. These retainers and trays are comfortable and removable and look the most natural.

  • Invisible Aligners
    Clear aligners are a set of removable trays that are custom fitted to your teeth and appear invisible. Each new set of clear aligners applies a slight adjustment to your teeth. The aligners are very comfortable, because they’re made with a pliable material and fit snuggly to your teeth. These aligners are removable and look the most natural.
  • Healthy Start for Young Children
    To create a healthy smile, a child’s teeth need to be straight and their jaws need to be aligned properly. That’s why it’s a good idea to have a dentist examine your child while they still have their baby teeth. By age seven, enough permanent teeth have emerged to evaluate relationships developing between the teeth, the jaw, and bite patterns for your child’s dentist to make sure everything in the mouth will continue to develop as it should. If early preventative treatment is deemed necessary, it will occur in two phases. Early treatment will help prevent greater oral issues later, and thus more invasive orthodontic procedures when the child gets older. A little early prevention and intervention makes orthodontic work as a teenager much more comfortable and successful.
