When it’s time for you to look for braces, there are so many options that you might feel a little overwhelmed and even wonder what is the difference between all of the types. Our Spilsbury Orthodontics team can help you make the best choice for you.

Traditional/Metal Braces
Traditional braces are what most people think of when they think of braces. They have metal brackets glued to the front surfaces of your teeth and connected by metal wires. Over time, the metal appliance will shift your teeth into the smile you have always wanted.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are similar to traditional braces but instead of metal brackets and wires, the brackets and wires are tooth-colored and natural looking.

Invisalign®-Style Braces
Probably the most popular option for adults, Invisalign-style braces use a series of clear, plastic aligners that slowly move your teeth into place. The aligners can be removed for eating, drinking and brushing, and are clear, so most people will never know you’re straightening your smile.

Lingual Braces
Lingual braces are the same as traditional braces but instead of having the appliance glued to the outside of your teeth, lingual braces are glued to the inside of your teeth.
