Metal Braces Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive. Ceramic Braces Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. Self-Ligating Self-ligating brackets utilizes (sliding-door) technology known as "self-ligation" that allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. Self-ligating brackets often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed. Invisalign® 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. Clarity™ Clarity™ Braces feature a comfortable design with a translucent appearance. 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 Clarity™ Braces option! SmartClip™ The SmartClip™ Appliance by 3M Unitek is a unique bracket system that uses special technology known as "self-ligation" to allow the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. In addition, SmartClip™ brackets may reduce both office visit time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed.
