There are numerous companies that manufacture braces, each trying to design a more comfortable and efficient version. Most of the options are quite similar, with several exceptions. Dr. Y continuously researches new products to ascertain which appliance system provides the greatest benefit to the patient and doctor. We offer several types of braces in our office:
TRADITIONAL METAL BRACES
Small and low profile braces, this type uses small elastics rubber bands also known as "O" ties (colored rubber bands) to engage the wire into the slot of the braces.
SELF-LIGATING BRACES CERAMIC/METAL
25% bulkier than the traditional braces but allows for decreased treatment duration and shorter office visits.
Self-ligating ceramic braces combine esthetics and efficiency.
Lingual (tongue-side) braces – the most esthetic option
