Types of braces

Traditional fixed braces:
These are the most common types of braces that consist of brackets, arch wire and elastic bands. Current braces are lighter and use less metal compared to the olden days, and they come in bright colors for kids and in clear styles for adults.

Invisalign or clear braces:
These are patented, custom-made plastic aligners which are designed to put teeth into required position. A new set of aligners are given frequently to the patients to set teeth into position and they offer aesthetic advantages compared to traditional braces and can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing.

Lingual braces:
Lingual braces are placed on the interior side of the teeth and are a great option for people concerned about their appearance. Similar to traditional braces, teeth are straightened using gentle pressure to help them slowly shift into the proper position.
