Types Of Braces are:

Metal Braces

These are the traditional stainless steel braces. however we also use the mini bracket system which are smaller in size and hence less visible and so you don’t have a notorious metal mouth. Invisible Braces

Invisible braces serve as a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces by blending more with the natural color of the teeth and having a less conspicuous or hidden appearance. Typically, these brackets are made of ceramic or plastic materials and function in a similar manner to traditional metal brackets. Lingual Braces

These are braces fixed on the inner surface of teeth. The traditional ones are a little uncomfortable as it is in contact with the tongue. But relax , the modern lingual braces are custom made with a gold base and are more sleek in design as it takes up the tooth shape and hence are more comfortable. Ceramic Braces

These are transparent braces which are least visible in mouth. they are a very good alternative for those who are not comfortable to wear metal braces. Ceramic braces never change colour, though the rubber bands used to hold the wire might get a little stained. these bands are changed every appointment. Self Ligating Braces

These braces do not need rubber bands to hold the wire to the bracket and hence are more hygienic and faster than normal braces. there are metal and ceramic types in these braces too.
