Types of Braces
Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel.Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.
Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.
Invisalign are invisible braces that consist of strong plastic trays that are fabricated especially for you. Invisalign is for adults that have moderate orthodontic problems. Invisalign is truly invisible; no one will know you’re wearing braces.
