Braces and Orthodontic Treatments in Binbrook
Braces are used to move crooked or misaligned teeth using force and pressure. Typically, braces are made of four key parts which include brackets, bonding material, archwire, and ligature elastics or o-rings.
Our team of skilled dentists each have over 15 years of experience providing dentistry and orthodontic services to patients of all ages. Learn more about our Invisalign and Six Months Smiles treatment programs.
Types of braces available
There are several options available when it comes to braces and each style offers its own set of benefits depending on your given situation and needs.
Traditional braces: lightweight metal brackets that are attached to your teeth and connected to one another using archwires and elastics.
Ceramic braces: the brackets of these braces are clear and made from ceramic material. These braces can be discoloured if not cleaned properly.
Lingual braces: these braces are installed behind your teeth to hide them from view.
Clear aligners: similar to a mouthguard, clear aligners are invisible, composed of acrylic, and removable. (for more information, visit our Invisalign page).
If you aren’t sure what type of braces are right for you, speak with one of our dentists. Our team of friendly and knowledgeable dental assistants and dental hygienists can also provide you with additional information and suggestions.
