What are the types of braces?

Dental braces are devices used by the dentist to align and straighten patient’s teeth and help position them to fix the bite, while also aiming to improve dental health. Braces also fix gaps. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.
Braces have a constant pressure which, over time, move teeth into the desired positions.


– Traditional Metal Braces

are the most common type of braces. These braces have a metal bracket with elastic holding the wire onto the metal brackets.


Traditional Braces


Self-ligating braces

They are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, these braces do not require the use of elastics, which means, fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. They use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the arch-wire guide teeth to place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.

– Clear or ceramic braces

Serve as a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces, by blending into the natural color of the teeth. Typically, these brackets are made of ceramic function in a similar manner to traditional metal brackets. Clear elastic ties and white metal ties are available to be used with these clear braces to help keep the appliances less conspicuous.


Clear Ceramic Braces

– Lingual Braces

A cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces, except that the brackets and wires are placed on the inside of teeth making them externally invisible.
