What you need to know about braces

Despite the rise of plastic aligners, conventional braces remain a popular choice for straightening teeth.

Advances in technology have produced braces that are:

  • More affordable.
  • More effective, especially in complex orthodontic cases.
  • More discreet.
  • More comfortable.

Types of braces

There are two main types of braces – metal and ceramic.


Metal braces

Metal braces are the standard orthodontic treatment and the best method to rectify severe cases of teeth crowding. They’re the most affordable type of braces but also the most conspicuous, although modern braces are less noticeable.


Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces have tooth-coloured or clear ceramic brackets that blend in with your teeth, but they can be prone to staining if you’re not careful. Ceramic braces cost more than metal braces but work faster than plastic aligners.

• Overbite – upper front teeth overlap lower teeth
• Crossbite – upper teeth bite on the inside of lower teeth
• Open bite – upper and lower teeth fail to make proper contact

Benefits of braces

Benefits of braces Braces can resolve more complex orthodontic problems – such as severe tooth crowding and significant overbite issues – than newer orthodontic treatments.

Other benefits of braces include:
Affordability: Braces remain a less expensive option than Invisalign plastic aligners. Metal braces tend to be the most affordable. Invisalign costs more than both metal braces and ceramic braces

Colour customisation: Bracket bands come in a wide variety of colours. This can make braces a fun form of self-expression, particularly for younger patients
