For Your Smile

It used to be that when someone got braces, they were fitted with a mouthful of metal. Those early forms of braces were often painful and quite noticeable.

Luckily, orthodontists have developed modern braces that are less painful and more aesthetically pleasing. At Brodsky Orthodontics, choose from different braces or Invisalign® clear aligners — to best suit your smile needs.

Miniature Metal Braces

Metal braces are the traditional type of braces that have been used for many decades, although they have changed a lot in size and shape in more recent years. Modern miniature metal braces/brackets, which are small in width and depth, are constructed of high-grade stainless steel.

These brackets are bonded to the front of each tooth and are connected by a wire. By changing the wire over the course of treatment, metal braces slowly reposition your teeth into proper alignment.

While they are more visible than other forms of braces, the metallic version comes with the option of multicolored bands, allowing you to have a customized and colorful smile.

Clear Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are similar to the metallic version in that they realign teeth using brackets attached directly to the front of the teeth. The main difference is that they're made of a clear, ceramic material which matches the color of teeth.

By using ceramic brackets, the braces become less visually noticeable, sparing braces-conscious patients the look of a metallic set of teeth. Due to the material, ceramic braces are more brittle and require more attention when cleaning and caring for them.
