Traditional Braces Options:
Ceramic braces are much like the most common metal braces except the brackets that attach to the teeth are made of ceramic instead of metal. These can be color matched to your teeth so they are not as noticeable as the metal colored kind. Ceramic braces are also very strong and some people feel they are less irritating than metal.
Self Ligating Braces are braces with brackets that do not need ligatures (the small bands that hold the wire in place). You may also hear them referred to as “speed braces”. Rather than using ligatures or metal ties, the brackets themselves have a sort of trap door that holds the arch wire in place. According to manufacturers, this creates less friction between the wire and the bracket.
Self-ligating brackets have many benefits. A common claim made by the manufacturers of these types of brackets is that they require less frequent office visits. They are also said to be easier to clean and somewhat more comfortable, as there is less resistance between the brackets and the arch wire.
Lingual Braces are similar to metal braces but are attached behind the teeth so they’re not visible when you smile. Lingual braces are also more expensive than traditional metal because they are less common increasing the cost of material.
