Metal braces/Traditional braces

Metal braces/Traditional braces

These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word “braces.” However, modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable than the notorious “metal-mouth” braces than many adults remember.

 

Least expensive type; colored bands give kids a chance to express themselves 

Most noticeable type of braces and difficult to clean.

 

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to be even less noticeable.

 

Less noticeable than metal braces.

More expensive than metal braces; Brackets can stain easily if patients don’t care for them well

 

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are the same as traditional metal braces, except that the brackets and wires are placed on the inside of teeth.

 

Invisible from outside 

Difficult to clean, more expensive, not appropriate for severe cases and more uncomfortable.
