Braces for adults is a service that we proudly offer here at Lefferts Braces. They’re not just for kids. As a matter of fact, they’re for anyone, regardless of age group, who would like to have more ideally positioned teeth. Having this type of treatment is a cosmetic advantage, of course, because a straighter smile most definitely looks better. But your realigned teeth will relieve discomfort, ensure that your bite (occlusion) is lined up well, and you’ll be able to floss more effectively between your teeth, giving you a leg up in the fight against tooth decay and gum disease.
You can have traditional braces, which are made of metal. They have been around for a long time, and they continue to do a fantastic job. Another plus is that advancements in technology mean that the ones you get today from our braces office Jamaica are more lightweight and stylish than the ones from the past. Furthermore, there are some challenging cases where metal braces are still the superior choice for handling them. If you would like a structure similar to metal braces, but that blends in better and is not as noticeable, our braces office Jamaica also offers ones made of ceramic. They’re a bit more fragile than their metal counterparts, but that drawback may be more than made up for by the fact that they are more aesthetically pleasing. The third basic option is Invisalign, the ultimate in clear technology. The aligners in this treatment are crafted from clear plastic. They are virtually invisible. And unlike with metal or ceramic, they’re removable. Enjoy all your favorite foods when you take out your aligners to eat.
