Dental braces are devices, typically made from metal or ceramic, that are used to move and straighten teeth. They exert constant pressure on teeth, slowly moving them into the proper position.
Braces are a way to straighten and improve the health of your teeth by fixing problems with your bite, such as underbite or overbite. They also give you a beautiful smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
Metal braces: The most common type of braces, metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel. Metal braces have brackets that are attached to each individual tooth. The brackets are connected by a wire. As teeth move, the wire will gently guide them into the proper position.
Acrylic braces: This type of brace is transparent and barely visible. They are best suited for teenagers and adults who don’t want their braces to be a major focus of conversation.
Ceramic braces: Ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces but are made of a translucent ceramic material that can be designed to match the natural color of your teeth.
Lingual braces: These braces are cemented to the back of teeth, so they are not visible. They are best suited for those with bite issues or severe misalignment.
