When it comes to straightening teeth, there are many different types of braces that are used. The different types of braces all have different pros and cons. In this article, we are going to review some of these braces.
Metal braces are the first type that we are going to talk about. These are the most popular types of braces. Metal braces are put together by using small metal brackets that get glued to the front of the teeth. A wire runs through all of the brackets and helps to form the alignment of your teeth. One of the benefits of these braces is that you are able to get them in a variety of colors. It’s important to note that metal braces stay on during the entirety of the treatment.
Invisalign is another type of braces. Invisalign is an invisible set of aligners that change every couple of weeks. The orthodontist continuously sends you a new pair and over time the teeth begin to shift. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign is able to be removed. You will usually only remove the aligners to eat. One of the benefits of Invisalign is that you can’t see them as easily as metal braces.
