Types of Braces
Although clear aligners have become very popular, traditional braces, whether clear (ceramic) or metal, are still a great option and sometimes necessary for certain tooth movements where the orthodontist might need better control.
Traditional “braces” consist of brackets which are bonded to the teeth and wires which are progressively changed out as needed. Colored elastics are used to hold the wire in the mouth. Clear braces (ceramic) are a good option for a slightly more aesthetic result.
Braces are recommended for both kids and adults who do not wish to take anything in and out of the mouth.
