Sharing is caring!

AWhether you are researching braces and orthodontic treatment for yourself, your child, or a loved one, it can often be overwhelming and difficult to figure out where to begin. Don’t worry – you’re in the right place to find some basic information, tips, and recommendations from a top rated orthodontist in Worcester MA, Webster MA, Holliston MA, Milford MA, Dayville CT and Hudson NH. In this article, I want to share with you some of the questions you should ask to ensure that you’re making the right decision for braces and orthodontic treatment.


Your Main Concerns About Braces & Orthodontic Treatment


For you to have the best experience possible and work well with your orthodontist in MA, CT or NH, you may want to ask yourself some of the following questions.


• Do you prefer braces that are as comfortable as possible?
• How long can you expect to be in braces?
• Does the length of time vary from one type of braces to the next?
• Do you prefer that the braces are easy to take care of?
• How extensive will orthodontic treatment need to be for your particular case?
• Do you prefer invisible braces?
• Will your insurance cover most of the cost of braces?
• Are flexible payment options for braces available?


Based off your answers to these questions, your orthodontist in MA, CT or NH will be able to help you determine what type of braces is best suited for your unique case. Your orthodontist will go into detail with you at your first appointment for braces.


The first thing I’d like to do is briefly describe the different types of braces. We will go into more detail about each type of braces in later posts. Please note that this is a very general list, so your specific options in braces will typically depend on the orthodontist you choose and what they offer.


An Overview Of The Different Types Of Braces

  • Still the most common type of braces, traditional metal braces are made of gold or silver brackets with colorful bands to attach the archwire. These metal braces can provide treatment even for severely misaligned teeth. They are strong, affordable, and more comfortable than ever. The only downfall is that they aren’t ideal for someone who doesn’t want to appear to have braces, as they are very noticeable.
  • Ceramic braces are subtle braces designed to blend in with your teeth. They’re very comparable to traditional metal braces, minus the fact that they are clear and less noticeable. Product advancements have taken place over the years to ensure these clear braces will no longer stain from food or drink.
  • Lingual braces are often an appealing choice as the brackets are cemented to the backs of your teeth. Though this isn’t an ideal type of braces for everyone, some patients prefer it over other braces because of how discreet they are. On these hidden braces, each bracket is custom-made to fit behind your individual tooth. While these are still a great type of braces and treatment option, the only downfall is that they’re more difficult for the orthodontist in MA, CT or NH to access and keep clean.
  • Invisalign® is a clear plastic tray option that works exceptionally well for people who don’t want to appear to be wearing braces. When wearing Invisalign, you have no dietary restrictions as you remove the trays whenever you eat. The only challenge is that you absolutely must brush after every meal, before you put the tray back in.

  • “I just wanted to take the time to give some praise to this office and all the staff. My daughter got braces today and everything went great. The staff and all the doctors are very friendly and helpful. My daughter was a little bit nervous about getting her braces and the staff made her feel so comfortable. A+'s in my book.”

  • I like the service we receive during my son's appointments. I love the fact that when we are early, 99% of the time we are taken early. Most appointments are very quick. This last appointment was bitter sweet. Usually his Dad brings him to his appointments but he had passed away three weeks previous. I was going to mention it while we were there but they had already known and everyone made a point to extent their condolences to my son. It was very thoughtful and I appreciated it very much. Thank you!
