These are the type of braces you most commonly see people wearing. Small metal attachments or brackets are bonded to the front of the teeth and are joined together with fine metal wires (sometimes known as “train-tracks”). These braces are the most sophisticated available and may be the only way that a severe problem can be corrected by the orthodontist.
These are a form of fixed brace which is bonded to the front of the teeth. Instead of the traditional metal attachments, the brackets are made of a tooth coloured or clear ceramic material. These braces are not quite as strong as metal ones and are not suitable for every type of correction. Ceramic braces are less visible and slightly more expensive than metal braces with longer treatment times.
These braces are worn behind the teeth, on the inside and may be stuck to the teeth in the traditional way. They have the advantage of being nearly invisible but can be difficult to wear. These braces may be appropriate for use in only some types of orthodontic corrections.
