St. Louis Orthodontist Dr. Debra Fink Presents: Types of Braces

  1. 1. St. Louis Orthodontist Dr. Debra Fink Presents: Types of Braces You May Choose
  2. 2. Should You Choose Insignia Braces? • Uses a digital system to create braces and wires that are customized for the contours of your teeth and mouth and move teeth in a highly efficient manner. • Results in fewer office visits and a reduction in typical treatment times as compared to traditional orthodontic treatments. • Provides three dimensional representation of treatment options.
  3. 3. Should You Choose Tooth-Colored Braces? • Brackets are less noticeable on your teeth because the brackets are tooth-colored. • To further reduce visibility, tooth-colored ligature wires and clear elastics may be used. • Treatment works in a similar manner to traditional braces.
  4. 4. Should You Choose Lingual Braces? • Brackets are positioned on the back of the teeth and are thus concealed and discreet. • Popular treatment option for actors, athletes, models, and professionals. • The Harmony system creates tailored brackets for the back of a specific patient’s teeth that are designed to increase comfort levels and decrease orthodontic treatment times.
  5. 5. Should You Choose Metal Braces? • Lower cost and higher durability than other forms of orthodontic treatments make it the most popular form of orthodontic treatment. • Uses metal brackets and wires to create precise, small and continuous forces that are applied to the teeth and cause them to move. • Can be used on the widest array of orthodontic problems due to its effectiveness and efficiency in moving teeth.
  6. 6. When Dr. Debra Fink opened her own practice, she became the first independent female St. Louis orthodontist as reported in the Fall 1990 issue of the AAO Bulletin. Before Dr. Fink became an orthodontist, she completed a master's degree in research biochemistry and participated in a series of medical and scientific research projects while working for organizations ranging from an industrial chemical conglomerate to a prestigious university. Using this background, Dr. Fink continues to research and incorporate pioneering treatments at her practice in order to provide the best and most effective patient care. In addition, this expertise furnishes Dr. Fink with a wide range of options to provide patients with their desired smiles in a comfortable manner while reducing their treatment times.
