Types of Braces For Your Teeth

What Are Braces?

Braces use constant, gentle pressure, applied to your teeth over time, to move them into proper position. Your braces are at work every moment of your orthodontic treatment. While braces are available in metal, clear ceramic, and lingual styles, they all have the same goal: To correctly align your teeth and jaws for enhanced aesthetic appeal and for better oral health.

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are popular with children and teens, and are smaller and more comfortable than ever before.

Traditional metal braces feature three main components:

  1. the brackets that are placed on each tooth
  2. the arch wire that is threaded through them
  3. the color ties that hold the arch wires to the brackets

Choosing the color ties at each visit is the highlight of the appointment. In addition, Elastics (rubber bands) are commonly used in conjunction with braces, exerting a constant force to move teeth. Elastics must be worn as prescribed by Dr. Tendler and changed as instructed in order to maintain the proper force.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are a popular choice for adults and teens who would like a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces.

Options include clear ceramic braces, which use tooth-colored ceramic brackets instead of metal brackets for a nearly invisible look.  Clear aligners, such as Invisalign®, is another great option for most patients.
