Types of Braces
Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Self Ligating Braces
Most people are familiar with the concept of traditional braces. With the advent of new techniques and technology, we now offer several different types of braces to improve your orthodontic experience. A unique type of braces that has gained popularity in recent years is known as self-ligating braces.
Clear Invisible (Ceramic) Braces
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle.
Gold braces are unique type of braces found at All About Orthodontics®. Gold braces provide beauty and brilliance smile. These braces are plated with 24-karat Gold to give you that fashion statement look. These brackets work just as well as regular metal brackets with the added brilliant Gold look. With Gold braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile or clear elastics to give you the bold GOLD look.
Lingual System Braces
If you feel that traditional braces may affect your professional and personal life, you have come to the right place. We specialize in an alternative to traditional braces known as lingual system braces. Unlike traditional methods, lingual brackets are bonded to the backs of your teeth, closer to the tongue (lower arch) and palate (upper arch). Placing the lingual braces behind the teeth effectively hides the appliance, making it a great cosmetic alternative to conventional braces.
