Metallic braces (stainless steel) are the first type of braces that came out into the market and is used widely all around the world in orthodontic treatment. They are the most popular type and economical type of braces used. Modules, the elastic rubber bands that come in a wide range of colours which one can change every visit to the orthodontist, hold the wire in place in the bracket which is glued to the teeth.
What are Ceramic Braces?
Ceramic braces function the same way as metallic braces do. They are more aesthetically pleasing to the eye and is a good choice for people who do not want their braces to show so distinctively.
Invisalign is a great option for those who wish to straighten their teeth in a discreet manner. Perfectly customised to the wearer’s teeth at every stage of the treatment, the Invisalign is also removable, which means that unlike other forms of braces, there is no restrictions on food, and can be easily cleaned. The Invisalign is also known to be comfortable due to the lack of wires and brackets; and are smooth all around.
What are Lingual Braces?
Wanting to correct the position of your teeth and yet not wanting the braces to show? Lingual braces are able to do just that, with all the metallic brackets being glued on to the back of the teeth, making them completely invisible from the front. Unlike conventional braces, each of the brackets have to be customised to the patients tooth. Moreover, it would take longer for patients to be accustom and for normal speech pronunciations to return.
