Types of Braces
Clear ceramic braces are made of translucent material. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. Made from a hard ceramic material, these braces won’t stain or discolor. With the same performance as metal braces, many patients are now choosing the clear option. The drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.
The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign System.
