Posted on 2/7/2022 by Evan
What Types of Braces are Available?As early as the age of seven, you may opt to have your children undergo orthodontic assessment to further mitigate jaw problems, malocclusion, and other oral health problems. This will help them get the confidence that they need in their teenage and young-adult stage in life. Our dentist will assess your child's symptoms and make a treatment plan suited for their lifestyle, preferences and the treatment plan itself.

If you are already an adult, it is not too late to achieve a beautiful smile, either. Our team of skilled dental experts will work with you to help you achieve your healthy, confident smile through dental braces.

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the least expensive option, although it may require a hefty maintenance due to monthly appointments. Furthermore, your oral hygiene should always be on point. This is the most common type of braces available and most noticeable. However, it is highly effective, especially for extreme cases.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces in terms of their function, but they differ in aesthetic. They are less noticeable because of their white color. Moreover, they require a higher maintenance and are more costly than traditional metal braces.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces use the same material with traditional metal braces, but they differ in placement. They are usually placed at the back surface of the teeth, making it invisible to others. However, they are more costly than traditional metal braces and may require a longer treatment plan.


Invisalign looks like a clear mouthpiece and can be removable whenever you eat. This treatment plan may be your best option if you only have minor malocclusion. While more costly than traditional metal braces, it gives you a greater freedom in terms of cleaning, maintaining, and eating.

Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces offer the same aesthetic as traditional metal Braces. However, the former is more efficient due to the difference in material that will be used. If you are interested in learning more about your options for braces, please do not hesitate to contact us today!
