How Do Braces Work?

After a thorough examination has been performed and we’ve confirmed that braces are the optimal treatment option, we can begin talking about the many options of braces available to you! From traditional metal or clear ceramic braces to our unique self-ligating brackets, we have something for everyone’s preferences.

Self-Ligating Brackets

Self-ligating brackets use a sliding-door system instead of traditional wires and elastics to move teeth into their desired positions. These types of braces are highly efficient, requiring minimal adjustment visits and resulting in shortened treatment times. There are two specific types of brackets for self-ligating braces:

  • Traditional Metal – As the name suggests, these brackets are made from stainless steel and are what most people picture when braces come to mind. Due to their proven effectiveness in treating even the most complex cases, metal brackets continue to be the most popular option for braces. Thanks to advances in technology, self-ligating metal brackets are now more sleek and comfortable than ever.
  • Clear Ceramic – Offering the same great results as metal brackets, clear braces are made from a ceramic material that is designed to blend in with your natural smile. These braces are perfect for patients looking to maintain a more natural and discreet appearance during treatment.
