In the past, there was only one type of braces available, conventional metal braces. The good news is that today, there are many more options. The main choice you need to make is whether you would prefer to get traditional metal braces or clear Wylie braces. Our expert dentist at Kevin L Carlton DDS MS will assist you in making the right decision for you during your consultation.
Clear Wylie braces and traditional braces are both effective in treating many different malocclusions. The main difference is their appearance. Traditional braces; also known as conventional braces, are made of high-grade stainless-steel brackets that are cemented on and are attached with a thin, arch wire. If you’re considering clear braces, there is more than one type to select from. The different types of clear braces are: clear ceramic braces, lingual braces and Invisalign braces. Just like conventional braces, clear ceramic braces also consist of metal brackets with wires except the brackets are made from a clear transparent material which makes them less visible to others. Lingual braces aren’t visible because they’re located behind the teeth. Invisalign braces are very different because do not contain metal or brackets at all. They’re made of clear, removable plastic aligners that are virtually invisible. As you can see, they are many different types of braces to choose from. However, don’t let that overwhelm you.
