Orthodontics Albuquerque

Take your time when looking for a dental care specialist offering orthodontics in Albuquerque. While many dentists are quick to offer their patients the newest treatments available, not all new treatments are the right option for reliable results. Dr. Timothy Kelly and his staff recommend conventional braces as the best way to straighten teeth, close gapped teeth, and improve mal-alignment.

Why Traditional Braces Are Best

There are multiple functional advantages of choosing traditional braces over new technology. While metal bracket and wire braces may be considered 'old school' in today’s circles, their unique advantages over more modern options, like Invisalign, make them the better choice. For complex repositioning of teeth, conventional braces remain the most-recommended method of improving your smile.

Cost Considerations

New technology braces claim the 'cheapest way to straighten teeth'; however, that’s typically not the case. Discarding removable aligners by trading them out every two weeks creates an atmosphere that makes materials and labor more costly. We invite you to schedule a free, new patient consultation with Dr. Kelly and his staff to learn the truth about affordable metal braces and to determine you or your teenager's candidacy for orthodontic treatment. You may be surprised how affordable bracket and wire braces are.

Aesthetic Considerations

Today’s metal braces lack the metal bands that once surrounded each tooth and made the movement of teeth possible. Without the metal band, braces no longer give the ‘railroad track’ appearance that made patients the center of attention in social situations. A more streamlined appearance and less metal make ‘traditional style’ braces less showy and more likely to be accepted by teenage patients. Before discounting traditional braces, speak with our team about the unique advantages of conventional orthodontics in Albuquerque.

Effective Results

When looking for the fastest way to move teeth into position, there’s no doubt that metal braces remain the most effective way to see desired results; and while they may not be the most cosmetically appealing option, they’re undoubtedly effective in a way that most newcomers to the scene can never hope to attain. Best of all, traditional metal braces work on patients of all ages, particularly suitable for younger patients not yet old enough to qualify as candidates for Invisalign.
