TYPES OF BRACES
Invisalign®, Invisalign Teen®, and Clear Aligners
Invisalign® and clear aligners are a series of removable trays that are custom made to hug and move your teeth a little at a time using plastic and in some cases move teeth more effectively than traditional braces. The trays are removable which makes eating and brushing/flossing that much easier.
Clear (Ceramic) Braces
Ceramic braces are the beautiful clear braces that match the teeth! The great thing about these is you can add colors and make them pop or use with clear ties and have them blend in depending on what you have going on that month. While they are less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and more brittle than the metal. For this reason ceramics tend to be used more for older teenagers and adults usually on the top teeth more than the lower.
Metal braces are the most common type of braces and are smaller and more comfortable than ever. They are durable, easy to keep clean, and can be dressed up with different colored elastics bands for a unique smile every month.
