Braces are most commonly used in orthodontic treatment. Braces have two parts: brackets and wires. Brackets are like anchors/handles fixed on teeth through which wires pass to move teeth. As needed for every individual’s treatment, other components can be added.


They are fixed stainless steel braces attached on teeth with wire and elastics. Sometimes they go the front of the teeth while other times, they can be put on the backs of teeth – those are called “lingual” braces. Those are virtually invisible. Metal braces are safe, strong, sturdy and efficient but have drawback of metal visibility.


ceramic braces
Ceramic braces are clear braces made of translucent materials. Preferred choice for adult patients because they are less noticeable than metal braces. Ceramic braces are also equally good in straightening teeth and fixing bite. Like metal braces, ceramic brackets too come in conventional and self- ligating kits.


The Damon Braces (self-ligating braces) are another type of braces used to correct tooth malposition. Instead of elastics, they have another system within to keep the wires in place. This way they are easier to keep clean.

Apart from this benefit, they can complete treatment faster reducing treatment time and the number of visits required. Appropriate forces and shape memory wires move teeth faster reducing the clinic visits and help you to manage busy schedules.
