At Placerville Dentistry, we can straighten your teeth both painlessly and discreetly. Our orthodontic surgeons will set you up with the most modern forms of braces or retainers. They have several years’ experience beyond a general dentist and can produce truly stunning results.

The cost of braces will vary depending on the extent and type of work required, and we set up a comprehensive treatment plan for each client. For instance, if you need to improve your bite or occlusion, we can fit you with a special mouth guard to ensure your teeth remain in place while receiving maximal protection.

What is the Difference Between Braces and Retainers?

Braces are external appliances that are fitted on the outside of your teeth. They maintain pressure on the teeth to shift them into the desired position.

Retainers are custom dental devices fitted on the inside of your mouth to hold teeth in place for several months or years after braces have been removed. They allow nearby tissue to adjust to how the teeth have aligned.

If your condition happens to be minor, a retainer without braces might be a viable solution. However, for conditions that involve several teeth, or overbites, under-bites, cross-bites, or gaps, braces are likely the only solution.

Do Braces Work Better than Retainers?

There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on the individual’s specific needs. Generally speaking, braces are more effective in correcting severe alignment issues, while retainers are more suited for minor corrections or preventing teeth from moving after braces have been removed.

Braces are easily the most common method of straightening teeth, especially in children. Nor do they need to be made of metal. Today some braces are made of clear ceramic, which is barely visible. Not only that, but braces have gotten more comfortable than ever before.

Braces or retainers might be your solution if you need to straighten your teeth. Our orthodontists can help. 

What are the Different Types of Braces?

The most common braces are metal braces, ceramic braces, and lingual braces. Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel that is safe for your teeth and durable. Ceramic brackets are clear devices that blend into the natural color of your teeth, making them undetectable to anyone else. Lingual braces are custom-made to hold onto the backsides of your teeth, making them invisible to others.

If you are looking for a more discreet orthodontic solution, our team at Placerville Dentistry can help you find the right type of Placerville braces or retainer for your needs. Contact us today at (530) 317-0378 to schedule a consultation.

Tell me about Invisalign

Invisalign is a type of retainer that uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to move your teeth into the desired position gradually. It is made of BPA-free materials and can be removed for eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth. Invisalign is a popular choice for adults who want to straighten their teeth while still maintaining a youthful appearance. The technology is fully available at Placerville Dentistry.
