Traditional metal braces are still the most common type of braces requested by patients. Thankfully, they are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth, using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Ceramic braces are made of a clear ceramic material, therefore, less noticeable than metal braces. The latest ceramic brackets are very strong, meaning they do not break very easily, and are more comfortable. However, if you need an extensive corrective treatment, metal braces are probably the best solution.
Self-Ligating braces are the modern choice in Orthodontics. By avoiding the elastic O-rings used in traditional braces, teeth move faster with less discomfort, and are easier to keep clean. It applies biocompatible reduced forces that ensure reduced friction and rapid and simplified dental movements. This option requires prior planning and diagnosis to assess the possibility of using this technique.
