Braces used to be the mark of the kid who was made fun of by everyone. They were large and clunky, a constant source of embarrassment. Fortunately, we’ve moved past them being a bad social stigma, and braces themselves have come a long ways from being the clunky appliances they used to be. Now we have different kinds that you can choose between:
– 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.
