Ceramic braces often referred to as clear or tooth-coloured braces, are a type of fixed orthodontic brackets. Like traditional metal braces, they are used to straighten your teeth and adjust the bite. The main difference between ceramic braces and conventional fixed braces is the material the brackets are made of.
Traditional Metal Braces
The traditional metal braces are one of the most effective and commonly used ways to treat overcrowded, crooked teeth, jaw problems, misaligned bites, and address speaking or eating problems.
Self-ligating braces are another type of fixed braces. Unlike traditional braces that use elastic ligatures to hold the archwire, the self-ligating brackets have a built-in clip mechanism to engage the wire.
You need orthodontic treatment but cannot bear it or are unwilling to compromise your appearance? Lingual braces might be the way for you to go. Unlike conventional braces, lingual braces are still fixed braces, but they are fitted to the rear of your teeth, making them nearly invisible to others.
