Types of Braces

Thanks to today’s technology, patients now have more options than ever when it comes to wearing braces. While regular metal braces are still widely used, clear braces are becoming increasingly popular. In addition, removable appliances can be used for cases of mildly misaligned teeth.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than ever before.

Clear Braces

Types of Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent material, which allows them to match the color of teeth closely. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal, but many younger patients choose them as well. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.
