Braces – They've Come a Long Way

Create a healthy beautiful smile with aesthetic, technologically advanced, and comfortable braces

Do you think that Orthodontic treatment takes too much time, is uncomfortable, unattractive and is only for adolescents?

Or maybe you feel you have no choice in the type of braces you are treated with. Braces have come a long way from the days of having a mouth full of metal!

The goal of every orthodontist is to give adults or kids alike healthy beautiful smiles, so Kids Spaces teamed up with 3M, a leader in the orthodontics business for over 60 years… yes, these are the same people who brought you Post-It and Scotch Tape…..to take a look at the latest in braces:

• Clarity™ ADVANCED Ceramic Braces are small, comfortable, and the most aesthetic braces available. Enable shorter treatment times compared to removable trays. Unnoticeable, blends with the color of your teeth, smooth, and they do not discolor

• New technology 3M APC Adhesives has made applying braves quicker and better for the teeth (protects tooth enamel)

• Clarity ADVANCED braces make the colors of the rubber bands POP. So if you want to represent your school or just express yourself with your favorite color, these are the braces of choice!! Or you can wear clear rubber bands that cannot be seen at all.

• Forsus™ Appliances – in cases when special movement is needed, there is no longer a need for bulky, embarrassing headgear and wires that you wear outside of your mouth. 3M Forsus appliances are small, worn inside the mouth, comfortable and work faster than the old-fashioned removable headgear.

You have a choice! 3M products are available from orthodontists around the world. You can ask for 3M products by name and find an orthodontist in your neighborhood by visiting 3MBraces.com

And if you are considering those supposed “invisible” trays consider this… Clarity ADVANCED braces are less expensive, have been found to treat more quickly than the removable appliances, are not embarrassing because you have to take them out when eating, don’t get lost, don’t smell and don’t discolor like the attachments used with trays.
