They are often used to correct underbites, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth or irregular teethforwardly placed teeth and various other malformations of the teeth and jaws. Dental braces are often used along other orthodontic appliances (Functional Appliances) to help widen the jaw, modify the position of jaws, to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws and even aid in orthognathic jaw surgery.

What are the types of dental braces?

Metal braces

The traditional ones that treat extreme overcrowding and abnormal alignment of teeth and jawline. The metal braces help align the teeth and jawline in small increments at a time. In modern times, metal braces come with a wide range of color options that make them more visually appealing. While they seem like an inconvenience and a lengthy method, once your treatment is done, your smile will be the reward you will get.

Clear ceramic braces

Invisible braces / Ceramic braces/ Clear braces – and metal braces are almost the same; however, the only difference between them is that one is less visible than the other. Tooth-colored braces or clear ceramic braces are attached to the teeth surface just like metal braces and provide similar treatment results.


To achieve a prettier smile, Invisalign treatment can be done. Invisalign treatment is a go-to choice for those with mild to severe malocclusions. Clear plastic aligner trays are used in this process to shift the teeth gradually into proper alignment. The patients are required to wear it for at least 20 hours a day. It can be removed very easily, allowing the patients to brush, floss, and maintain their oral health as they normally do. Invisalign is apt for those who are conscious about their appearance as it looks like a clear plastic mold and is completely invisible. There is no restriction in chewing hard foods with invisalign treatment as is commonly with other braces treatment.
