Considering Braces

Baker Orthodontics

If you’re seeking orthodontic treatment for yourself, your child, or a loved one, you’re in the right place! My goal is to educate you about orthodontia in general as well as Baker Orthodontics in particular. If you live in the Calhoun, GA area and are researching orthodontists, I hope you find the information provided on our website helpful.

Because you’re making an important decision, it may be helpful to first explore what your priorities are. What would you like to accomplish through orthodontic treatment for yourself or a loved one?

What’s Important to You

No matter who you’re seeking treatment for, you probably have questions. My hope is that I can provide you with general information to address many of those questions so that you can go to your first appointment already armed with knowledge.

To begin with, you may want to consider the following questions:

  • Is optimal comfort important to you?
  • Do you prefer invisible braces?
  • What are your goals for treatment?
  • Ideally, how long would you like treatment to last?
  • Do you prefer that your braces are easy to keep clean and take care of?
  • Will your insurance cover most of the cost?
  • Are you open to flexible payment options?

Many of these questions will be answered at your initial consultation, but having them ready and researching your orthodontist in advance can be very beneficial to everyone.

Now I’d like to briefly introduce you to some general options as far as braces go. Though not all orthodontists offer all of these types of braces, it’s still good to know about them so that you can get an idea of what you want.

An Introduction to Different Types of Braces

The most common type of braces are traditional metal braces. These are suitable for all levels of treatment, even if you need extensive care. The brackets are silver or gold, and the archwire is attached to the brackets with tiny, colorful rubber bands called ligatures. The only real downfall for some people is that these braces aren’t invisible.

A popular alternative to metal braces are ceramic braces. Also called clear braces or sapphire braces, these brackets are designed to blend in with your teeth. Essentially they work the same way as metal braces, but instead of colorful ligatures, they’re the same color as the brackets so that they blend in with your teeth. A common misconception is that they aren’t as sturdy as metal braces. Though this was true in the past, product advancements have ensured that these brackets are comparable to metal braces. Another common misconception is that they stain easily. While this was true in the past when the brackets were made of plastic, it no longer holds true as the brackets are now made of a ceramic composite.

Did you know you can get braces that attach to the back of your teeth? Lingual braces are a less common choice, but in some cases they’re the best option. They tend to have more downfalls than most other braces, unfortunately, but they have become easier to care for than ever thanks to technological advancements.

You’ve probably heard of Invisalign®, right? These clear plastic trays gradually straighten teeth over time, each tray doing its part to move the teeth a little more. This option is great if you don’t need extensive treatment and want to avoid looking like you have braces. Though they tend to be a little more work as far as home care goes, most people find them very well worth it.

Here at Baker Orthodontics, we also offer custom solutions called Comfort Braces. If this is something you’d like to discuss further, please ask us at your Baker Smile Assessment and initial consultation!
