Our Harlem dental braces may come as a pleasant surprise, because we offer two types, both of which feature benefits and advantages that were at one time not available when you needed to get your teeth or the teeth or your teenager straightened. That’s good news here at 125th Street Braces. We understand that while you want to have more properly aligned teeth for cosmetic reasons, you also don’t want to feel self-conscious about wearing the device that is used for the treatments. Of course, there are very good practical reasons why you should consider orthodontic care to reposition your teeth. When teeth are crooked, they can cause you discomfort. Typically, your jaws will also be misaligned, causing complications. And flossing is not as efficient because some teeth are difficult to get between properly. This can open you up to a much greater risk for tooth decay and gum disease.
Of the two types of braces we provide, the most familiar to many people will be metal braces. But don’t assume this is a mass of wires and brackets that will stand out like a pimple on your face. No. Today’s metal braces are more lightweight and their look is simpler. They can even be stylish, with colors and flourishes that allow you to express your individuality. Naturally, our Harlem dental braces still do an excellent job of moving your teeth into a more ideal position as determined by our orthodontist. In cases of particularly challenging teeth alignment issues, metal braces may still also be the very best choice to tackle the job.
The other choice we have is Invisalign, which is a system of clear aligners that are made of plastic. Because of their nature, these aligners are virtually invisible, so the world does not have to know you are wearing our Harlem dental braces. They are also removable, though you only take them out to eat, brush, and floss. This means, however, that you can eat whatever you want with no restrictions for fear of anything getting stuck. There is also no worry about mouth irritation or the feel of something digging into your gums. Let us help you decide which of our braces is best for you.
