Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Metal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive. Metal brackets can require small latex ties which come in clear, or a vast array of colors - which can add a log of fun to treatment. Other brackets may be self-ligating.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces, except the brackets are crystal clear, so they are less noticeable. They are most popular with adult and teen patients due to their cosmetic appeal.
