This advancement in orthodontic appliance technology has made orthodontic straightening a much more viable option for many people. And now there are many different options of orthodontic for you to choose from as well:

– Metal Braces: Metal braces are the most commonly used brackets. Metal brackets are glued to each tooth, and wires connect each bracket. Rubber bands are also required.

– Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, but not as visible. They offer more aesthetic and cosmetic appeal over traditional metal braces.

– Lingual Braces: Lingual braces are similar to metal braces, but lingual braces are attached to the back of the teeth, not the visible front.

– Invisalign® Clear Aligners: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible aligners that can be removed daily.
