Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Clear Aligners

These clear plastic aligners are virtually undetectable compared to the more obtrusive traditional braces. This allows patients to feel less self-conscious as they progress through their treatment. In addition, many patients find the plastic to be comfortable and enjoy that they have the ability to remove the braces to brush their teeth or eat. The aligners give patients more options as they move through their everyday routine.
