Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are very common type of braces and have been around for many years. They are made of high-grade stainless steel and straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. The coolest thing for kids especially is the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable plastic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can take them out while eating, plus you brush and floss just like normal. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
