Types of Braces

Traditional Metal Braces

metal braces

The most common version of brace is traditional metal braces, which are more comfortable than ever before. Metal braces use metal brackets and archwires to straighten your teeth and are made of high-grade stainless steel. Colored elastics (rubber bands) can be added to metal braces to create a more distinctive and colorful look.

Ceramic Braces

Because ceramic braces are constructed of transparent materials, they are less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces. As a result, ceramic braces are mostly utilized on older teens and adult patients who are concerned about their appearance. Ceramic braces are bigger and more fragile than their metal counterparts, so they require greater attention to mouth care. Ceramic braces are better if applied on upper front teeth than on lower teeth for these reasons.

Clear Aligners


Clear aligners are a series of clear, removable, and pleasant acrylic trays that work like braces to straighten your teeth. The aligners are not only invisible, but they are also detachable, allowing you to eat and drink anything you want while in treatment, as well as making brushing and flossing easier. The aligners are comfy, and there is no metal in them to create oral abrasions while you’re wearing them.
