Traditional Metal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel and are the most common type of braces. Brackets are bonded to the front of each tooth and are then connected by the archwire which serves to guide the teeth into the desired positions. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than in the past.
Ceramic braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces but are less noticeable because the brackets are clear. Due to their aesthetic appeal, ceramic brackets are very popular amongst adult patients. A patient should consider that ceramic braces are more fragile than traditional metal braces and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.
Aligners are customized trays made of durable plastic or acrylic material and are very effective at straightening teeth without brackets and wires. Clear aligners are customized, comfortable, removable, and virtually invisible. Ask us if clear aligners are the right treatment option for you.
