Dental Braces (Orthodontic braces)

Braces are devices used to align and straighten teeth and help to correct their position with regard to a person’s bite, and also works to improve persons dental health. Braces are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, crossbites, open bites, deep bites, croocked teeth, crowding of teeth and various other flaws of teeth & jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Dental braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.

  • Traditional Metal Wired Bracesare stainless steel and also used in combination with titanium. Metal braces are the most common type of braces. These braces have a metal bracket with elastic (rubber band) ties holding the wire onto the metal brackets.
  • Ligating Braces are the second most common type of braces that do not require the need of elastic. The wire goes through the bracket. Often with self ligating braces, treatment time is reduced, the pain in the teeth is less and requires lesser adjustments than traditional braces.
  • Clear Braces (Cosmetcic Braces) are alternative to traditional metal braces as they blend more with the natural colour of the teeth . Typically, these brackets are made of ceramic or plastic materials and they function in a similar manner to traditional metal braces. Clear elastic ties and white metal ties are available to be used with these Clear Braces. Clear Braces have a higher component of friction and tend to be more brittle than metal braces.
  • Lingual Braces are custom made fixed braces bonded to the back of the teeth making them invisible to other people. In Lingual Braces the brackets are cemented onto the backside of the teeth making them invisible while in standard braces the brackets are cemented onto the front side of the teeth. Hence, lingual braces are a cosmetic alternative to those who do not wish the braces to be visible.
