Types of Braces

4 Most Reliable Types of Braces

1. Self-Ligating Braces

2. Clear Braces

When paired with tooth-colored wires, these orthodontic appliances are very esthetic and nearly unnoticeable. Although they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene care since ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than metal ones.

3. Lingual Braces

Lingual braces (IncognitoTM) are the most esthetic option available for those that want a truly invisible orthodontic treatment. They are custom-made for each of our patients and are bonded behind the teeth. They work similar to the more traditional types of braces but nobody can tell that you have them on!

4. Invisalign Aligners

Example of Invisalign bracesInvisalignTM aligners are series of clear aligners that are custom-made for your teeth. Aligner trays are made of smooth plastic that is comfortable and nearly invisible. These aligners are meant to be worn throughout day and night as they gently shift teeth into desired positions.
