Knowing that you or a family member needs braces can be overwhelming. Braces are an investment of time and money, and the decisions regarding treatment options can seem daunting.
Now that you know it’s time for orthodontic treatment, let’s take a look at some of your Philadelphia braces options. When it comes to orthodontic treatment we generally think of traditional metal braces, but there are many options to give you the smile you desire.
Conventional metal braces require the placement of brackets on the front of teeth with connecting archwires. These brackets put pressure on your teeth and cause them to shift, resulting in proper alignment. Braces can take up to 36 months for treatment time, and may require elastics and headgear depending on the type of treatment your smile requires.
