There are three main types of braces:
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces. They are made of high-grade stainless steel and straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. You can elect to go for the standard silver metal look, or you can choose different colored bands to match your personality.
Ceramic braces are a newer, more esthetic option that is far less noticeable than metal braces. Instead of metal, these brackets are made of a ceramic material that blends in with the color of the teeth. Many adults prefer this type of braces because it’s hard to notice that they’re there. They work the same as metal braces, however, ceramic brackets are more fragile and will need a little extra TLC.
These braces are similar to traditional braces, with one notable exception: They don’t require elastics to move teeth into place. Instead, the wire is placed into the “door” of each bracket, allowing for greater freedom of movement. This can sometimes be more comfortable than other kindsof braces.

Other Reasons for Orthodontic Treatment
There are many different reasons for orthodontic treatment. Some teens only need braces for 12 months or less, while others require treatment for up to three years. It all depends on the types of problems we are trying to address and fix. Some of these problems may include:
- Crowding or spacing of the teeth
- Rotated teeth that simply do not straight
- Teeth erupting on the side creating a “second row”
- “Gummy smiles” or not enough teeth showing when smiling
- Teeth that appear to be leaning back too much or pushed out too much
- Narrow arches that are not as esthetically pleasing as
- Jaws shifting or clicking
- Early or late loss of baby teeth
- Difficulty chewing and/or biting
- Extra or missing teeth
- Impacted teeth that are having difficulty erupting
- Discrepancies between the size of the upper and lower jaws, creating bite problems
