Diamond Braces vs Normal Braces: What’s the Difference?

If you need orthodontic correction, you have a host of options to provide you with optimal results. Gone are the days when the normal or the traditional braces were the only alternative to adjusting your teeth. You have choices and can tailor your treatment plan to meet your needs, whether you opt for clear aligners or braces behind your teeth.

The most important thing that you can do is to be informed about your options. Diamond braces are another alternative that you may not be aware of that can give you optimal results.

What are Diamond Braces?

Diamond braces also referred to as mini-diamond braces are braces that are made from stainless steel. They are considerably smaller than the metal braces that are traditionally used.

When combined with ligatures that blend with your teeth, they are less noticeable as well. The length of treatment time is comparable to traditional braces.

Diamond Braces vs Normal Braces 

Diamond braces vary from the normal or traditional braces in their size and the comfort they provide for patients. Because brackets are not as pronounced, they cause less irritation of the mouth and gums.

Many patients opt for this alternative in orthodontic treatment because they do not stand out in such an obvious way as compared to the metal brackets that have been typically used for orthodontic correction.

Choosing the Best Method of Treatment for You

The best plan for treatment is going to depend on you. Your orthodontist will evaluate your need for orthodontic correction, whether you have an overbite, underbite, too much space, or crowding.

The next step is choosing a plan to bring your teeth into proper alignment, whether you choose diamond braces, traditional braces, or clear aligners.

Once you’ve chosen a treatment plan, you’ll be able to move toward a healthier, happier smile. Bringing your teeth into alignment does more than enhance your appearance. It will make it easier for you to have good, oral hygiene.
