Braces are commonly used to align the teeth. Although there are several types of braces, they all work in a similar way. This brief guide will educate you on the different kinds of braces available today.

When one thinks of braces, almost automatically we go to the large metal pieces that fit over our teeth. Thankfully, modern dental technology has made these so they are slightly less visible. Our dentist will consult with you if these are the right course of action for you.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces, also known as metal braces, have metal brackets and wires. However, the brackets are significantly smaller in size and the archwires use the heat of your body to move the teeth quicker. These braces are considered to be more cost-efficient than its alternatives but are the most noticeable type.
