There are a wide range of options because there are a wide range of requirements. For some orthodontic conditions there is a clear solution, but in most cases it comes down to you and your lifestyle.
For instance children and young adults often choose metal braces. These require some care but it’s very easy to get used to them, and you can’t forget to put them on. Plus a lot of their friends are wearing braces so there’s less of a concern about how noticeable they are.
Adults often choose clear aligners such as Invisalign, as these are almost invisible, and provide more flexibility when it comes to eating, but they do require a greater level of responsibility to ensure they’re put back for at least 22 hours a day.
