Orthodontic Appliances

What are the main types of orthodontic braces?

The following are some of the most popular orthodontic braces:

Traditional braces – These braces are strong and tend not to stain the teeth. They are comprised of individual brackets that are cemented to each tooth and accompanied by an archwire which constantly asserts gentle pressure on the teeth. Traditional braces are generally metal but are also available in clear synthetic material and “tooth-colored” ceramic. The ceramic brackets are usually more comfortable than the metal alternative but can become discolored by coffee, wine, smoking, and certain foods.

Invisalign® – Invisalign® aligners are clear trays and should be worn for the recommended amount of time each day for the quickest results. Invisalign® aligners are more comfortable and less obtrusive than traditional braces but also tend to be more costly. Not all patients are candidates for Invisalign®.

Lingual braces – These appliances are usually metal and fixed on the tongue side of the teeth, therefore cannot be seen when a patient smiles. Lingual braces tend to be moderately expensive and can interfere with normal speech.
