Types of Braces

 

Clear Braces

Clear braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to clear brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Metal

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.
