Type of Braces

 

Metal Braces

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. Our standard for patients is to place these on the lower teeth and back teeth of the upper arch.

Clear Braces

Ceramic clear braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. These brackets are standard and placed on each patients top front 8 teeth.

In-Ovation L (Lingual Braces or Invisible Braces)

In-Ovation L is a self-ligating bracket that is bonded to the INSIDE of the teeth creating a more aesthetically pleasing effect, allowing you to retain your normal appearance for the duration of your treatment. The self-ligating technology also provides for fewer office visits and a faster overall treatment. In-Ovation L brackets are ideal for correcting minor alignment problems as well as full arch treatment providing you are a suitable candidate.
