After the treatment, patients teeth are properly aligned teeth, they have good bite and perfect smile. Also, this prevents them from facing long-term gum disease or poor jaw alignment.
Adults and teenagers alike may opt to have braces, especially if their orthodontic cases range from mild to severe. Over time, there have been changes in the type of braces that patients may choose from.
Types of braces
Ceramic braces. As the name suggests, the wires and brackets of this type of braces are made from ceramic materials. It adds more value to our patients who want to be discreet about their orthodontic treatment. This is the closest alternative to Invisalign, only that these are used to address mild cases.
