Dental braces are used to straighten teeth, improve the bite and overall dental health. There are several types of dental braces available, each with their own unique benefits and drawbacks. Here are the most common types of dental braces:
These are the most common and affordable type of braces. They are made of high-grade stainless steel and consist of brackets that are glued to the teeth and connected by wires.
These braces are similar to metal braces but the brackets are made of tooth-colored ceramic material. This makes them less noticeable than metal braces and a popular choice among adults.
These braces use a special clip instead of elastic bands to hold the wire in place, reducing friction and the need for adjustments.
Clear aligners such as Invisalign are made of clear plastic and are virtually invisible. They are removable and require the patient to change the aligners every few weeks.
Each type of braces has its own unique benefits and drawbacks, and the choice depends on the patient’s specific needs, budget and aesthetic preferences. It is important to discuss with an orthodontist to determine the best option for you.
All the above types of treatment are available and we offer detailed in depth view of the treatment results with each modality. Treatment plan is highly customized for you and hence we don’t simply “tighten” the braces.
