TYPES OF BRACES
Traditional Metal Braces:
These are the most commonly used braces, known for their durability and effectiveness. Constructed from high-grade stainless steel, they use metal brackets and archwires to align your teeth. They also allow for colorful elastics, adding a fun, personalized touch to your smile.
Clear (Ceramic) Braces:
Ceramic braces offer a less noticeable alternative, blending in with the natural color of your teeth. They are popular among older teenagers and adults concerned about the aesthetics of braces. However, they require more diligent oral hygiene as they're larger and more fragile compared to metal braces. Typically, they are preferred for upper front teeth.
These aligners are transparent, removable trays made from comfortable acrylic material, offering an invisible way to straighten teeth. Their removability allows for easier eating, drinking, and oral care. Free from metal, they reduce the risk of mouth abrasions during treatment.
