Types of Braces
There are pros and cons to getting different kinds of braces so it is good to have an idea of what options are available.
Metal braces are a very common type of braces that are the most noticeable and are often the cheapest option. Ceramic braces are similar in size and design to metal braces but the bracket are clear or tooth colored which makes them a bit less noticeable. Self-ligating braces avoid using rubber bands or metal ties to move the teeth and rely solely on the brackets to adjust the teeth. Lingual braces are invisible from the outside because the brackets and wires are placed on the inside of the teeth.
One of our excellent team members is happy to answer any further questions you might have on your orthodontic care journey.
Maintain great oral hygiene while
