Types of Braces

Every smile is unique just as every orthodontic patient is unique. As such, My Orthodontist works with each patient that entrusts us with the betterment of their smile individually, finding the best orthodontic treatment plan to meet their needs specifically. With so many different types of braces to choose from, we are able to accommodate your preferences. Check out the wide variety of orthodontic options that My Orthodontist provides.

Metal Braces

colorMetal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct position. This form of braces is a classic that keeps with the times. Today’s metal braces continue to be smaller, increasingly comfortable, and more attractive than ever before.

Ceramic Braces

clearCeramic braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces. The key difference here is that the brackets are clear, not metal, so they are less noticeable. These braces are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic braces are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between visits to your orthodontist.

Clear Aligners
