The quickest way to find out is to be seen by an orthodontist. And Michigan Smile Design gives you a free consultation. But there are some signs that you may need braces, including:

  • You have difficulty biting or chewing food
  • You have mouth pain on a regular basis

If you or your child are experiencing these symptoms, It may be time to give us a call at our office in Bloomfield Hills.

What types of braces can you get?

Bluebar

Traditional Metal

These are likely what come to your mind when you hear, “braces.” Traditional metal braces are the most popular type of braces in the world. They’re smaller and more comfortable than ever before.

Gold Braces

These are likely what come to your mind when you hear, “braces.” Traditional metal braces are the most popular type of braces in the world. They’re smaller and more comfortable than ever before. Gold braces are similar to metal braces. They are made of stainless steel coated in gold. Some patients consider gold a more appealing option than traditional metal braces.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of clear or tooth-colored ceramic. Teenagers and adults often choose ceramic braces because they’re more difficult for others to see. However, they’re also more fragile than metal braces.

Damon® System

Ceramic braces are made of clear or tooth-colored ceramic. Teenagers and adults often choose ceramic braces because they’re more difficult for others to see. However, they’re also more fragile than metal braces. Damon braces are more comfortable, require fewer adjustments, and treat teeth faster than traditional braces. These braces will give you a straight smile in a shorter time, and they’re hard for others to notice.

Invisalign®

Invisalign a is nearly invisible plastic aligner that you wear over your teeth. Unlike braces, Invisalign doesn’t require you to change your diet, or visit the orthodontist to get wires tightened.

How much do braces cost?

Bluebar

The cost of braces depends on what treatment you need, the type of braces you choose and your insurance. Even if your insurance does not cover braces, Michigan Smile Design offers payment plans to help you get the smile you want. We can talk over financial options at your free consultation.

What can you eat with braces on?

Bluebar

The cost of braces depends on what treatment you choose to straighten your teeth. If you choose Invisalign, you won’t have to change your diet.

Traditional braces, however, will require you to change what you eat. A good rule of thumb is that you can’t eat hard or chewy food while you’re wearing braces. Here are a few specific examples:

Foods To Avoid

Bluebar
  • Gum
  • Taffy
  • Hard candy
  • Popcorn
  • Ice
  • Nuts
  • Soft dairy products
  • Soft breads
  • Pasta
  • Meat (preferably soft, not chewy
  • Pudding
  • Fruit and vegetables

How long do you have to wear braces?

Bluebar

The time you’ll spend with braces depends on the type of braces, your age, and other factors related to your mouth. Some people might spend six months with braces, while others will wear them for three years. The easiest way to get an idea of how long you’ll wear braces is to see an orthodontist.
