Types of Braces

While regular metal braces are still widely used, clear braces and lingual braces (or inside braces) are becoming increasingly popular along with the latest advance, Inivisalign.


Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.


Clear BracesCeramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal.

Lingual Braces

Lingual BracesThese are custom made braces that are fitted to the inside/back of the teeth making treatment truly invisible, while still allowing the higher degree of finishing and control of more trditional braces.


Invisalign BracesThese are clear plastic plates that are worn in a sequence to move teeth from start to finish.  They are almost invisible and can be removed for social occasions and for normal oral hygiene routines.
