Types of Braces:

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before.

Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires.

With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

Self-Ligating Braces

Damon Braces- Damon braces are self-ligating appliances that are fitted in the same way as traditional metal braces.

But instead of having brackets that tighten and adjust the braces regularly,

Damon braces use a slide mechanism that attaches wires to brackets to move naturally with the teeth as they realign.

Self-ligating braces are made from the same materials as traditional braces.

However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being

placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets.

They are the same size as metal braces, but use a specialized clip in place of elastics to

help the arch wire guide teeth into place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed

on the tooth, and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.

Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces.

For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns.

While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger

and are more brittle than their metal counterparts.

For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.

Clear Aligners


Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten

your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat

and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle.

The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.

Lingual Braces


Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth and are therefore “invisible” when you smile.

Lingual braces are 100% customized to match the shape of your teeth and therefore the metal

appliances are created uniquely for you. Lingual braces are a very reasonable option for

athletes, models, actors/actresses, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals.
