Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable than ever before. Metal braces are made of high-grade stainles steel. Teeth are straightened using metal brackets and archwires. You have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Ceramic Braces (Clear Braces)
Patients concerned about their appearance in metal braces can take comfort that they have the option to obtain ceramic braces. Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. Ceramic braces are mainly for older teenagers and adult patients. Although ceramic braces are less noticible, they do require more effort and attention to oral hygiene. Ceramic braces are also larger and are more fragile than the metal counterparts. That is why ceramic braces are used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
Invisable braces known as Invisalign use a series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. No one can tell you are wearing them. You can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Even brushing and flossing is less of a hassle.
