The most well-known and most common type of braces, metal braces have been developed so that they are now more sleek and comfortable than ever. These high-grade stainless steel braces will straighten your teeth with metal brackets and archwires. There is the added option of adding colorful elastic band to fit your personality.
Self-ligating braces are identical in material to metal braces, with the exception of elastic rubber bands. They use a special clip rather than rubber bands to help the arch wire guide the crooked teeth into alignment. This results in fewer appointments and less stress and pressure on the teeth, and few adjustments are needed since no elastics need to be replaced.
Clear braces work in exactly the same way as metal braces; however, they are made of material that matches the color of your teeth. This makes them less visible and more aesthetically pleasing. They are generally used by older teens and adults who are more concerned about cosmetic appearances. Although clear braces are less noticeable, they are less durable and more fragile than traditional braces, and therefore require a higher level of care and maintenance. And because they are larger and more delicate than metal braces, they are more often used on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
A popular choice for many orthodontic patients, Invisalign clear aligners consist of a series of removable acrylic trays that straighten crooked teeth just like braces. Because of the clear material used in manufacturing these aligners, they are virtually invisible. Another benefit is that they are easily removable, so patients can eat, drink, brush, and floss without limitations. Invisalign aligners are more comfortable to the inside of the mouth than traditional metal braces.
