Types of Braces

Due to the way orthodontic technology has advanced, Stittsville Braces is happy to offer patients with more options regarding braces. Even though many people still choose traditional metal braces for their treatment, there are other options on the table now. Clear braces or Invisible braces are very popular these days. Invisalign removable braces are also an option for people who have slightly misaligned teeth.


Metal Braces

These are the most common braces you will see on a patient, but they are not the only option. Metal braces are small, comfortable and fairly easy to manage these days. They are very different from the metal braces you saw on people 15 or 20 years ago. They are made from stainless steel and they straighten your teeth using wires attached to the metal brackets. You can also add colored elastics to the front for a more colorful look!

Ceramic Braces

These braces are made from clear materials, which means they are far less visible when you are walking around or going to work/school than regular braces. They are also very popular with older teenagers or adults who may have some concerns about the impact of having metal braces on their teeth. They are slightly bigger in size since ceramic brackets are more fragile (for added strength).

Lingual Braces

Invisible braces are an option for someone who does not want visible braces on their mouth, but cannot get Invisalign treatment because their teeth require a lot of re-alignment. The customized braces are created and bonded on the inside of your teeth, which ensures they are not visible at all. No one will have a clue that you wear these braces, unless you show them the back of your teeth! They are customized to your teethí shapes, ensuring you get a comfortable and effective treatment experience.


Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, are a type of braces where you see clear and removable aligners put on a personís teeth to fix alignment issues. You can never tell if someone is wearing these aligners because the material is completely clear and invisible. The aligners are also removable, which means you can eat and drink as you please during your treatment. Brushing your teeth with them on is also easier.
