Various Types Of Braces:

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are still the most popular, quickest, and most cost effective, orthodontic treatment available.

Your orthodontist can help you determine what treatment is best for your individual case.

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used in orthodontics, as they are the tried-and-true method

to straightening teeth – regardless of the severity of the case. They have progressed a long way in the past decade to ensure

better comfort and a great way to customize your smile using different colored rubber bands; you can customize these at each visit.

Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and utilize brackets, small rubber bands, and archwires to straighten your teeth

during the course of your treatment process.

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

Invisalign

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 Bracesl

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.

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.

Oral hygiene in orthodontics

Oral hygiene is an important factor controlled by the patient during orthodontic treatment, which can affect the quality and timing of the therapy.

Previous studies have demonstrated a rapid decline in oral hygiene compliance after the initial bonding, and the appliance favors plaque

accumulation and represents an obstruction to the hygiene procedures.

Optimal oral hygiene requires thorough and clear professional instructions, adequate tools, and patient motivation,

which is an essential factor to obtain compliance.
