What types of braces are available?
Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common orthodontic treatment used today. Braces offer the latest technology, and are more comfortable than ever before. Traditional braces give us the ability to really control and move a patient’s teeth perfectly into place. These braces are made out of titanium or stainless steel and are durable, making them a great choice for children, teens, and adults.
Self-Ligating Braces are similar to traditional braces, but they do not use any type of elastics. This type of brace uses special brackets or clips to help move teeth into place. Self-Ligating braces help to reduce the amount of pressure placed on your teeth and reduce discomfort. Overall, self-ligating braces tend to be more comfortable compared to other options.
Clear (ceramic) Braces
Ceramic braces give patients an alternative to metal braces. These braces blend in more with your natural teeth, and are more discrete. Ceramic braces tend to be bigger in size compared to traditional metal brackets. They are made out of aluminum, are durable, and provide the same amazing results as metal braces.
