"As a Teen, I got started on my dental journey in Orthodontics first when I got braces. I desire to give all of my orthodontics patients the same level of care that I received." - Dr. Rouse

Why Would I Choose Metal / Clear Braces Vs. Clear Orthodontic Trays?

The Top 3 Reasons for Choosing Traditional Braces Over Clear Orthodontic Trays Are:

  1. “Set it and Forget It” – This tried-and-true concept applies to Traditional Orthodontics when it comes to looking for your teen child’s best outcome in the minimum amount of time without making your child worry about where their trays are or progress checks on their own.
  2.  Precise, Provider-Based Results – This is due to the fact that much more of the outcome is placed in the dentist’s hands when brackets and wires are placed in the mouth for 24 hours a day until the next visit. 
  3. Your Teen has Excellent Oral Hygiene – if your teen gets multiple raving reviews from the dental hygienist or Dr. Rouse at their dental check-ups, taking care of traditional braces should be a natural extension of that care and attention.

    METAL VS. CLEAR BRACKETS

    CLEAR Braces

     
    ceramic braces celina tx dr rouse open late dentistry and orthodontics dentist
     

    Ceramic (clear) braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.

    Traditional (Metal) Braces

     
    Celina Texas Metal Bracket Traditional Braces Dentist Dr Rouse
    Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

    AND NOW…Offering Self-Ligating Braces!

     
    Self Ligating Brackets Open Late Dentistry And Orthodontics Celina Prosper Tx

Made of high-grade stainless steel, Self Ligating metal brackets straighten your teeth using metal brackets with a door, as opposed to traditional rubber bands (“O-Rings”). With Self Ligating metal braces, you can save time by seeing us less.

    Bite Turbos

    Bite Turbos Front Teeth Orthodontics Dr Rouse Open Late Dentistry Prosper Celina Frisco Mckinney
    Front Top Teeth With Bite Turbos

    The main point of bite turbos it to keep your teeth apart. 

    The point is that if braces are in the ideal position and the upper teeth are resting on the lower brackets, bite turbos for your teeth might be necessary.

    Keep in mind, they are temporary.

    They typically go on 1st molars or on the inside of the top front teeth if you have a deep bite.

    They can be removed later on.

    Any tooth they are placed on will most likely hurt for a few days if some of the other teeth are not touching. Don’t worry…once removed they will move back into place.

    Elastics Types

    Types Of Elastics Celina Prosper Open Late Orthodontics Dr Rouse

    Brackets and Wires will get your teeth straighter in line with one another.

    But elastics help orient your upper and your lower jaws.

    The Six Patterns of Elastics Include: 

    1. Triangle Elastics – These bring your upper canine teeth down by anchoring them to lower canine and premolar.
    2. Class 2 – These bring your lower jaw forward and your upper jaw back. These typically go from the upper canine to the lower molar.
    3. Class 3 – These bring your lower jaw back and upper jaw forward. These typically go from the upper 1st molar to the lower canine.
    4. Box elastics – These are typically used if you have an open bite. They go around your front teeth in a box. They move your front teeth together.
    5. Vertical – These go in a zig-zag or a box to bring your back teeth closer together.
    6. Front Cross – These are used if your midline is off. They move your upper jaw and lower jaw’s midlines closer together.

    Orthodontic Retention

    Fixed Vs. Removable Retainers

    We Typically Recommend That if You Plan on Keeping Your Wisdom Teeth, You Consider BOTH a Lower Fixed Retainer AND Removable Retainer. 

    And if you have a Frenum (Lip to Gum Connecting Ligament) to Have an UPPER Permanent and Removable Retainer at the end of Orthodontic Treatment.

    Clear and Metal Brackets Orthodontics F.A.Q.'s

    Depending on the treatment goals, the total treatment time can be very comparable if all instructions are followed, along with at-home care.

    Foods That Can Break Brackets and Delay Treatment Include: Sticky Foods and Hard Candy (e.g. Gumballs, Peppermints, Jolly Ranchers, etc.), Apples (uncut), Corn on the Cob, Ice, Raw Carrots, Hard Breads (e.g. Bagels) Raw Vegetables. 

    However, patients are still being subjected to brackets and wires after they leave the office.

    That is why we recommend some type of pain alleviation with Advil/Motrin/NSAID's for the first few days after braces are put on.

    It will get easier as your mouth gets used to the braces and using orthodontic wax for anything that pokes, massaging your gums with an electric or manual tooth brush, and sticking to a soft diet for the first few days is the secret to your success.

    It is easier to list all of the colors we don't 🙂 We can do different color combinations on request and love helping teen's customize their look!
