Different Types of Orthodontic Braces in Tucson AZ
There are a number of different types of orthodontic braces that can be used to help align the teeth and help prevent them from shifting.
Fixed Braces & Removable Braces
Braces come in two main types: fixed brace and removable one. Fixed braces are meant to stay in place for the entire duration of treatment. They are typically made of metal, plastic, or ceramic and are intended to shift the teeth into their ideal position. Some people may prefer fixed braces because they feel less intrusive than removable ones, which can be either metal wire or clear elastic bands that come in a variety of widths and lengths.
There are also removable braces that you can wear at home over several weeks or months if needed to get your teeth straight. Removable braces offer several advantages over fixed ones, such as being more comfortable, easy to take on/off, and less time-consuming to maintain. However, some people may feel self-conscious wearing them because they’re visible externally.
Traditional Metal Braces – Braces are never cheap but traditional braces are typically the most affordable out of all of the options.
Ceramic Braces – Ceramic braces are much less noticeable than traditional braces.
Lingual Braces – Lingual braces are invisible when smiling.
Clear Aligners – Practically invisible and a type of removable brace.
