Orthodontics | Types of Braces
Brace Yourself For A Beautiful New Smile
Thanks to today's technology, patients now have more options than ever when it comes to wearing braces. While regular metal braces are still widely used, clear braces are becoming increasingly popular along with removable appliances that can be used for mild cases to moderate cases.
Metal braces are the most common type of braces. Our metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel. Our metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and aesthetic than older generations appliances.
Our Clear braces are made of translucent sapphire crystal. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to clear brackets is that they are more fragile and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic appointments.
