Types of Braces


Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before.  They are made of surgical grade stainless steel. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

 

Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Clear braces are made of a ceramic material and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, clear braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as clear braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, clear braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.


 

Invisalign

Invisalign is a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable BPA-free acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Because the aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are more comfortable than metal or ceramic braces.
