Type of Braces
Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces which is made of high-grade stainless steel. This helps straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. You can also choose to add colored elastics.
Self-ligating braces are also made of high-grade stainless steel like traditional braces, yet it does not require the use of elastics. Which means, fewer appointments and less friction for your tooth. You can have self-ligating braces in traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets with the same sizes as metal braces. It comes with a specialized clip to help the archwire guide teeth into place. The clip reduces the amount of pressure on the tooth.
Clear (Ceramic) Braces
Clear aligners straighten the teeth using a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays. This doesn’t restrict what you should eat and drink, and you can floss with less hassle.
