Traditional braces are durable, reliable and affordable, and they work for a wide range of dental issues, including minor gaps in the teeth to severe alignment problems.
Sublingual braces are also a popular alternative to traditional braces. But rather than having the hardware showing on the outside of the teeth, sublingual braces are placed on the inside surface, making them virtually invisible to others, yet still provision the same level of effectiveness of traditional braces.
Ceramic braces are yet another variation of traditional braces. While they aren’t exactly as effective as metal braces and these fore aren’t for severe cases, they are still very useful. The brackets on ceramic braces are made of tooth-colored ceramic instead of metal, so they have a lower visibility profile that makes them less noticeable.

This is a removable device that rests inside the upper mouth on the palate. It works by gently widening the palate in an effort to correct a misaligned bite.
