- METAL BRACES/ TRADITIONAL BRACES
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of dental braces used in orthodontic treatment. These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word “braces.” However, modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable than the notorious “metal-mouth” braces that many adults remember. Additionally, we use state of the art heat-activated Niti® archwires that use your body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than in the past. Strength, reliability, and cost-effectiveness keep traditional braces the top option in orthodontic treatment!
- CLEAR BRACES/CERAMIC BRACES
Ceramic braces- also known as clear braces, tooth-colored braces or esthetic braces – are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. They offer a cosmetic alternative to the metal by using clear brackets. So clear braces are perfect for an adult who doesn’t want their braces to be noticeable. We use tooth-colored/clear wires along with these braces to make them even less noticeable.
