The use of traditional braces and its alternatives have become popular when it comes to misalignment. While traditional braces used to be the only way to treat misalignment, today you can find many types of braces.

Clear Ceramic Braces

Clear ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces in design and size. However, instead of metal brackets and wires, they feature clear brackets that blend in better with your teeth and are less noticeable while retaining their durability, stain resistance, and function. Some even have tooth-colored wires as well. Ceramic braces are well suited for many patients who do not have severe misalignments. Your orthodontist will let you know if you're a good candidate after they examine your teeth.

Self-Ligating Braces

Self-litigating braces are similar to traditional braces, but they use special clips and brackets to hold the teeth in place rather than elastic, rubber bands or metal ties. The clips allow greater tooth movement, reducing the discomfort sometimes associated with traditional orthodontics.
