Orthodontics Has Come A Long Way

Metal Braces

The traditional wires and brackets are what everyone pictures when they think of braces, and there’s a reason we still use them: they are effective. Wire braces consist of metal brackets that are cemented to each tooth and archwires that run across them. The archwires come in different sizes and stiffness levels depending on how Dr. Nguyen wants the patient’s teeth to move between appointments, and they are held in place by colorful elastic ligatures.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces offer low profile treatment but are just as effective as traditional metal braces at moving teeth into position quickly. What distinguishes them from metal braces is that the brackets are made of transparent ceramic, so the braces blend in with your teeth. Ceramic braces may be preferable for adult patients who don’t want their treatment to be so visible.
