The Many Types of Orthodontic Aligners

Posted .

There are many types of orthodontic aligners. If you wish for a traditional look, there is a style for that. If you wish for a sleek, affordable brand of braces, we can help. If you want to try removable retainers that are almost completely invisible to passersby, there is a style for that too. No matter what you choose to pursue, the options are completely up to you.

Below are a few of your choices and their benefits:

– Metal Braces: Metal braces typically are the most traditional and affordable pair. They can be color coded to match your style.

– Ceramic Braces: Cosmetic braces are similar to metal braces, but they are slightly less visible.

– Lingual Braces: Lingual braces offer the advantage of being extremely hard to spot, as they are attached to the back of the teeth, not the front.

– Clear Aligners: Clear aligners are often considered the premiere product in the orthodontic arsenal. They are not made of metal, are virtually invisible, and the aligners can be removed daily.

– Damon Braces: Damon braces are similar to metal braces, but do not require rubber bands. They are also easier to upkeep than traditional braces.
