Traditional orthodontic brackets are a highly reliable orthodontic appliance that works wonders for a wide variety of children, even adults. Traditional braces are durable enough to stand up to your child’s active lifestyle.
Made of high quality stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and wires. They will surely enjoy choosing their favorite rubber band color to wear around their brackets!
Metal braces are ideal for young children needing orthodontic treatment.
Ceramic braces are made of clear ceramic or porcelain. For this reason, they are less visible on your teeth than metal braces. By combining a clear bracket and threading tooth-colored wire through the brackets, we are able to produce a clear and aesthetic look.
Clear braces are mainly used by older teenagers and adult patients who don’t wish to wear metal brackets. Although they are more aesthetic, they require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are a bit larger and can become more brittle compared to metal brackets.
