Different Types of Braces
Ever wondered what types of braces are available? Here’s where you can learn about them
Metal Braces (Traditional):
Brackets are created with stainless steel, and they must use colored elastics. This type of bracket is attached to the front of each tooth and every tooth that requires movement will receive a bracket.
Ceramic (Semi-Clear) Braces:
Ceramic brackets are made with materials that make them nearly invisible compared to traditional brackets. This is a fabulous option for your teen if they are concerned with visibility of brackets on their teeth.
Self-ligating brackets are also made of stainless steel, like the traditional brackets. These brackets, however, do not use colored elastics to hold the wire in place. The self-ligating brackets have a small door that holds the wire. The awesome thing is that the door helps to lessen the pressure that is placed on your teeth and these brackets also require fewer in-office adjustments. These self-ligating brackets are also available in ceramic (semi-clear)!
Lingual brackets are attached to the back side of your teeth so they are much less visible! Lingual brackets are made of stainless steel, and function much like the traditional option. Many adult patients complain of traditional braces being so visible, and that is not a concern with the lingual bracket option.
