Types of Braces You Should Know About

If you have misaligned or crooked teeth, your orthodontist may suggest that you require braces. Braces are one of the most common ways to fix teeth alignment concerns ranging from minor to severe. We at True North Orthodontics, offer a variety of brace options in Calgary. Here is some information about the different types of braces:

  • Traditional Metal Braces: These are the most common types of braces and are made of stainless steel. The brackets and wires attached to them help straighten the teeth. You also have the option to get colored elastics to create a personalized look.
  • Ceramic Braces: These are made of a clear material, making them more subtle compared to metal braces. Older teenagers, as well as adult patients with cosmetic concerns, usually opt for ceramic braces.
  • Lingual Braces: These aren’t visible like metal and ceramic braces as they are hidden behind your teeth. Lingual braces are customized to match perfectly with the overall shape of your teeth. Adult professionals, actors, actresses, models, and athletes tend to choose Lingual braces.
