Available Kinds of Orthodontic Braces

Posted .

Braces have progressed a long way from the days when they used to wrap around the head. They are now sophisticated appliances and much more subtle. New types have been created, such as Invisalign® invisible aligners, which are virtually unnoticeable. Because of this explosion of new kinds of braces, you have many options to choose from:

– Metal Braces: Metal braces are the most commonly used brackets. Metal brackets are glued to each tooth, and wires connect each bracket. Rubber bands are also required.

– Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, but not as visible. They offer more aesthetic and cosmetic appeal over traditional metal braces.

– Lingual Braces: Lingual braces are similar to metal braces, but lingual braces are attached to the back of the teeth, not the visible front.

– Invisalign® Clear Aligners: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible aligners that can be removed daily.

With the comfort and effectiveness of orthodontic braces at an all high, now is the best time to speak with Dr. Brenna Christensen to see if you would benefit from having braces.
