As we march through the calendar year to the cold winds and long nights of the coming winter, it is a good time to brush up on your oral health care. If you think you may be interested in getting a teeth straightener, then the orthodontists at Yuma Orthodontics, Inc. want to help. Braces come in a variety of functions to suit the ever-changing needs of our social structure and emotional well-being. Below are five types of braces to consider:

– Metal Braces: Metal braces are the most commonly used brackets. Metal brackets are glued to each tooth, and wires connect each bracket. Rubber bands are also required.

– Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, but not as visible. They offer more aesthetic and cosmetic appeal over traditional metal braces.

– Invisalign® Clear Aligners: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible aligners that can be removed daily.

– Damon Braces: Damon braces are similar to metal braces, but have the advantage of not requiring rubber bands. They also require less maintenance and fewer trips to the orthodontist than traditional metal braces do.

If you would like to know more about your options for braces, please make an appointment by contacting our wonderful team at Yuma Orthodontics, Inc. via phone at (928) 343-9559. You can also stop by our office in Yuma, Arizona. Your smile is our business!
