BRACES (CLEAR AND SILVER)
Silver braces are the “traditional” type of braces that many people are familiar with. Silver brackets (braces) are placed on your teeth and stay on your teeth throughout the duration of your treatment. Wires are placed into the brackets. The wires exert a force on your brackets which causes the teeth to move into the desired positions.
Clear braces are very similar to the silver braces except they are made of ceramic, making the appearance more esthetic and less noticeable.
BENEFITS OF BRACES TREATMENT COMPARED TO INVISALIGN®:
Once braces are placed, they stay on your teeth (vs. misplacing aligners)
Parents do not have to worry if their child is “wearing” their braces
