Types of Braces

Traditional Metal Braces


Metal braces are smaller than they have ever been, making them significantly more comfortable to wear than in the past. Also, you can customize the look of your braces with colored ties which hold your wire in place. These colored ties are changed at every appointment (approximately once every 6 weeks), so you can change your look as often as you want! Traditional metal braces and the "Damon" type brackets work in an equivalent manner. The two types of brackets have been evaluated in multiple studies. The studies show no difference in the way these two bracket systems work. It is just  the personal preference of the orthodontist!
