Types of Braces
Traditional Metal Braces
This is the most popular form of orthodontic treatment and is made up of a series of brackets and wires. Over the years, metal braces have become more comfortable, compact, and affordable.
Ceramic braces are somewhat similar to metal braces, except that their brackets are made of a clear material, as opposed to metal. This makes this treatment a bit more fragile, so we tend to recommend these to adult patients. This is a clearer, more discreet way of straightening your teeth.
Invisalign consists of removable, clear aligners that are inserted for at least 22 hours a day. This orthodontic treatment is commonly chosen because of its nearly invisible appearance. We recommend Invisalign to adults, and some teens. Please read more about this treatment on our Invisalign page.
Benefits of Orthodontics
There are a number of benefits to having braces, including:
- A straighter, healthier smile
- Increased confidence
- Less abnormal tooth wear
- Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss, making you less susceptible to periodontal disease
- A well functioning bite, which can lead to less strain on surrounding muscles or joints
- Greater ease in eating food and speaking
