Making the choice about which type of orthodontic aligner system you wish to have can be a difficult decision. Metal braces were at one point in time most widely accepted and used system available. Now, thanks to cutting-edge technology and the changing preferences in society, there are many types available to fit into your social life.

Below are a few of your choices and their benefits:

Metal Braces: Metal braces typically are the most traditional and affordable pair. They can be color coded to match your style.
Ceramic Braces: Cosmetic braces are similar to metal braces, but they are slightly less visible.
Lingual Braces: Lingual braces offer the advantage of being extremely hard to spot, as they are attached to the back of the teeth, not the front.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners: Invisalign aligners are often considered the premiere product in the orthodontic arsenal. They are not made of metal, are virtually invisible, and the aligners can be removed daily.
Damon® Smile Braces: Damon braces are similar to metal braces, but do not require rubber bands. They are also easier to upkeep than traditional braces.
