Finding the perfect brace for the perfect fit requires patience, a little extra time to spare, and an understanding of the different types available. No matter which you choose, it is important to consult with your orthodontist to know all of the advantages and disadvantages of the various types of treatments we offer.
Here at Ramsay Orthodontics, we have many differant kinds of braces. Below is a list of the most common types:
– 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.
– Invisalign® Clear Aligners: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible aligners that can be removed daily. They are easy to use and come off when you eat or brush your teeth. This makes them a popular choice among many today.
