Types of Braces
Traditional Metal Braces
This type of braces is the most common type used. Compared to versions of the past, these are more comfortable and smaller, making them more attractive to wear. We can personalize these with colored elastics and even specially shaped brackets.
Self-ligating braces are similar to traditional braces but do not require the use of elastics. This means that the braces hold the wire in place in a different manner, cause less friction, and require fewer adjustments. Treatment goes faster and fewer appointments are needed.
Clear braces are made from clear materials and are less visible than metal braces. However, they are more delicate, so they are only used on certain teeth and on older patients. They must be carefully cleaned to prevent staining as well.
Clear aligners are invisible and removable trays that are shaped to place precise pressure on the teeth. They cannot be seen when worn and do not require any changes in dietary habits. They are ideal for anyone with aesthetic concerns.
These braces are made from metal like traditional metal braces. However, they are hidden from sight by being placed on the tongue side of the teeth. These braces are made for each patient to get an exact fit. They are suited to anyone worried about their looks or their braces being damaged by sports.
