What are traditional braces or metal braces?aao_boy_blueshirt_braces.jpg

Traditional braces have metal brackets and are attached to each tooth and linked with each other using a thin archwire to put pressure on the teeth, causing them to move slowly in the desired direction.  Braces are a great choice for growing individuals and difficult cases.

Qualified orthodontists can make adjustments to the treatment plan by either making bends in the archwire or by repositioning the brackets.  Braces can be used in conjunction with TADs (Temporary Anchorage Devices), elastics, and other orthodontic devices to handle more difficult cases.

Metal braces are generally less expensive but they are more pronounced and noticeable.

Modern Self-ligating braces

Self-ligating braces are specialized type of braces that use sliding mechanism instead of elastics to connect the archwires.  Currently, there are new heat-activated archwires that help to move your teeth more quickly and less painfully using your body heat. Using body heat activated memory wire, self-ligating braces work by applying pressure evenly to the teeth hence pushing the teeth back to a uniform shape. They offer gentle teeth treatment and require fewer dental visits.

Self-ligating braces move the teeth quickly which results in less painful movement because the teeth move on their own without the need for adjustment. The braces are also easy to clean. Examples of self-ligating braces are Damon braces.

Clear braces upgrade

Clear braces offer reduced visbility, thereby enhancing esthetics during treamtent.  It may be a good option for some people with higher esthetic demands who are not candidates of other options.
